I've got those grids on my my bike and they're pretty easy to make/install.

Just go to your local hardware/constrution store and buy a square of 50cm x 50cm. Usually places that sell acrilic also has them. And buy some SuperTac and/or silicon.

Take of your fairings, place a piece of carboard on the inside and outline the hole dimensions.

Tranfer to the grid with an extra 2cm all around
Cut grid
Place grid on fairing and "mold it" until it stays flush with the fairing cuz' it's a bit rounded on that part
Once satified it the fitment, put Super tac all around the edges of the grid (make sure you do not put too much so that it's not visible on the outside)
Let it dry and finish with silicon

All done!

Mine are not clearly visible in this crappy photo cuz'I painted them black but I also put grid on the lower fairing hole and the one that sits in front of the headers.
