Cheers

Yep as Troyman said, it will fit straight on. I've got one on my EF.

As for your question regarding the spark plug lead guides, you can remove them off the EL cover and fit them to the AU one as the AU has the provisions for them, however the AU spark plug lead guides go in threes (three in the middle of the rocker cover and three towards the rear) rather than all 6 at the rear on EF and EL rocker covers, so you may have to mod the underside of the EL guides to fit in the slots because i think they may be a tad longer - hope that makes sense lol but you'll see what i mean when you remove the guides and compare them to the AU cover. On my one i chose to re route leads 1 and 2 to the AU guides in the middle of the cover so that it didnt look to out of place.

I also think that the little lead guide for leads 1 and 2 on the exhaust side of the rocker cover near number 3 is not on the AU rocker cover, (well it wasnt on mine) so if you want to use that guide you'll need to drill and tap a hole there.
