Bit of a bummer.

First thing I discovered is that this unit does not fit the ABS models without modification.

The top tabs used to clip on to the radiator will need to be cut off in order to squeeze the screen behind the ABS plumbing (in red on the attachment below). I will trim off those tabs and it should have the required clearance to squeeze by the brake plumbing.

Once in place I will use zip ties to secure the top of the guard to the radiator, as is done with cox guards, and the bottom tab should still work with the lower radiator bolt.

Removed the upper tabs and the rest of the install was easy. The only thing I am hesitant about is some contact between the metal brake lines that run from the abs module and the radiator guard. I placed some foam between the two parts, but there is still undesirable contact. Pictures to follow.
