You possibly got a good idea there. Maybe put a screw on the back of the filler to attach an insulated wire looped around the plug wire. Or maybe a zip tie?? Wish I thought of this myself after losing the first one. I will never know unless I some how find one for next to nothing.
Wire loop around plug wire?
Will cause one hell of a short if it ever wears threw the boot

I've had the Kuryakyn set for a couple of years now. When mounted, mine look exactly like the picture Ricz posted. I see no way for these to just fall off as they're kind of a pain to remove when I annually replace the spark plugs. The one remaining cover originally posted is clearly not mounted correctly as there's way too much space under the cover as mounted. And yes, the original Kuryakyn set I bought had a Made In China sticker on the packaging.

Yea, and one would have thought that rear would have fell out but it didn't. Like I said I had them on my other Kingpin for some time and never a problem. I actually found a front to replace the lost one. When I get it the safety wires will be going on both fore sure. ..And I would almost bet they won't ever come loose. If that's what it will take!
I got some other recent pics that I'm gonna check to see if I had that back one in right or off by a fin. I removed it after the loss of front and believe I shoved it back in to take the pic. I don't think the foot would have even reached the motor to tighten it and would have fell out .(foot itself) ... found a pic, they are in correct..... OK , can't figure out how to upload the pic and it is 2:30 am I give up

Well both of mine are gone today! WTF they lasted 2500 miles. 300 miles today. Lost them both sometime in the middle of the day. They were the cheap ones on eBay. My guess the plastic pressure point below maybe shrinks or melts just enough to let the them fall off.

I was thinking about putting a dot of sandpaper under the pressure point. What have you guys done to keep them on?
