Installed my Low and Mean spoiler :D No instructions, so here is what I learned. Remove the rad cover that comes with the Stryker. Keep the black bolts, I used them instead of the ones supplied. The base of the spoiler have, for lack of a better description two hooks. Tilt your spoiler at about 60 degrees and hook the base to the bars under your bike. As you start to bring your spoiler to a 90 degree angle lift up, so the spoiler falls into place. Now here is the trick. Low and Mean supplies two cushion washers and bolts. The washers are to hold your bolts in place as you do the install. But its impossible to see if you are lined up with the holes of the rad, so your forever trying to get the bolts in the holes. :eek: So before you start, use two way tape and tape your washers to the holes of the rad. Now you can see when the holes of the spoiler line up with the holes of the rad. Insert your bolts through the spoiler and into the rad and that's it. Low and Mean you make one BAD ASS spoiler 8)

I broke this off of the other thread as this should be made readily available to new members wanting to know how to do this.

Hi. Did you get the screen with yours and if so, what was involved in putting it on?

Thanks,

Doc

I ordered the screens and installed them myself. Painted them with flat black Tremco spray paint. After two days of spraying both sides installed them with two way tape to hold the screen in place. Put dabs of super glue that came with the screens and sprayed accelerator to speed up the curing. Once I got the screen glued on, I when back and hit as many areas as I could to make sure it won't move.

Thanks for the great info. Did you paint your spoiler or is that the way it comes?

The spoiler comes painted and is a perfect match to the bikes frame colour. The spoiler is made of fiberglass and not cheap plastic. The only work on my part other then installing the spoiler was the painting of the screen and instulation of the screen. However, you may not want to paint the screen at all. It's a personal choice. I have seen some painter cooper in color, which was pretty cool. 8)
Low and Mean shipped the spoiler covered in bubble wrap and placed in a large box. Shipping was reasonable at about $16. That was from Low and Mean to North Eastern NY.

Just a little info for everyone who may be considering on ordering the spoiler. The spoiler can be installed and purchased without the screen. Also where you see the bottom screen in the photo, you can order the spoiler with this being solid fiberglass. You will be asked how you want it when you make the order. :) No I'm not a sales person for Low and Mean, but I do want to Thank them for offering a great prize. ;D

This is great feedback, sorry for the "no instructions" we have no good excuses, just busy and sometimes this happens. The first few sent out will not have instructions and it's great you posted your results. We are working on instructions and a install video on this product. Glad you like the product. Let see some more pictures, man it looks great on the blue Stryker.
Thanks for your support!

I got my spoiler yesterday and am going to paint the screen today. Did you paint the spoiler, or leave it as is, as it came? Also, what spray excellerater did you use and is it necessary. Is that super glue going to be enough to hold the screen in place with all that will be coming at it from the road (water, rocks, etc.)?

Hey Bravo:

I left my spoiler alone. If you were to spray paint it yourself, I guarantee that with the stones hitting the spoiler that it would peel. Besides, I see that there is no need to paint it. Low and Mean did a great job.

You don't need an accelerator, but it does make it cure instantly which means you don't have to hold the screen in place while the glue dries. The accelerator is a small spray bottle about the same size as your glue and can be purchased anywhere you buy the glue. Dab a few areas with the super glue and then spray it with the accelerator.

I have purchased the chin spoiler on both of my Raiders, and have found the clear RTV works the best for me. I tried the super glue supplied, but couldn't get it to set very fast, and it seemed a bit flimsy (sorry Chris). I've had my spoiler on and off several times and the RTV is still holding securely. This is not a ding on L&M, obviously I dig the spoiler a lot, otherwise I would not have got another one on my 2nd Raider. Both times I have ordered it painted, to match my Red Raider. These guys got it right! The color match was perfect both times! I HIGHLY recommend their products to anyone!

Got mine last night I used a different double sided tape but I was happy with how the glue that was supplied worked. The screens install very easy and I am bolting it up today so I will let you know how that goes. I also could not help but modify the look a little so I put my motocross number in the screen.

I painted the screen with some flat high temp BBQ paint I had yesterday. Bad idea. It came right off on my hand when I picked it up. Spent an hour scrubbing the paint off it. What type of paint is the best to use that will hold up on the aluminum screen?
