For installation, the easiest method is to remove the primary clutch, mount the rear tab on caliper and use holes in the protector as a guide to drill the panel. For those that don't have a clutch puller, you can download a template at the top of page and drill from the outside of panel. The upper protector can be drilled with the primary clutch in place.
