Having a couple of other Stucchi products on the GRiSO, I should have known it wouldn't really be simple bolt-on geegaw, but FFS!, what a palaver!

First, because of the my thermostat installation, the hose fittings interfered with the lower Stucchi bracket. I had to remove one of the extension fittings required for the stock cover, thus introducing a potential oil leak. I did end up with oil from arsehole to breakfast time. Mad
I said "fuck".

The kit is supplied with two M5 screws to attach the cooler and plenum to their top bracket, yet the bracket is drilled and tapped for M6 screws. I said "fuck" again. However, as the stock screws are M6, it was sorted quickly.

After all the stuffing about with the oil lines and wrong screw sizes, I finally got the cooler & plenum fixed to the bike. Next, the "decorative" cover. I then said "fuck" for a third time. The morons had drilled the cover mounting holes in the wrong place! Also, the one of the spacers mentioned in the (useless) instructions was missing from the kit! Fuckitty, fuck, fuck, fuck!

I'm sort of committed now, so I'll have to make my own offset bracket for the top screw. Arse!

Summary:

- The cover arrived with a small bend, despite the plethora of bubble wrap.
- The instructions are shite
- The hardware kit was missing a spacer
- They supply M5 hardware for M6 fittings
- The cover was poorly made, with paint runs and poor finish
- In my not-so-humble opinion, this geegaw will have zero affect on cooling efficiency

I also wonder, given they didn't ship it until I queried it, that perhaps they weren't actually expecting to sell any, and mine was a rush job. silent

I hate to say it but it's basically what I'd expect from this vendor.

Don't be sorry, Steve. It's even uglier in real life.

I got the poxy thing on. I made a little offset bracket for the hole-drilled-in-the-wrong-place. I'm thinking the middle silver bit needs to be orangified.

I'm thinking it needs to be taken off and given the floatation test! (Insert 'Puke' emoticon.)

It is somewhat unappealing at the moment, although I did find myself looking at it longer than I should. It is beguiling!. An orange middle and black outers would make it more appealing but still beguiling none the less. My admiration for you Mark remains un-wavering 'cause you are always prepared to take one for the team.

If I was gong to keep it on, I’d paint it all black to go with the rest of the engine.
