Radiator Guard

does anyone have one of these? does this radiator guard work? id rather buy one of these than a new radiator. awhile back had a rock punch a hole in the radiator. it ran me about $120.00. bike was also down for almost 2 weeks. these are the specs: Quality engineering allows Racing Radiator Guards to be manufactured without welding. The frames are cut from a sheet of .060 5051 aluminum while the screen is .034 expanded aluminum.

I have used the radiator guard on several bikes. No issues so far.

You can buy a sheet of the material from Motorcycles unlimited for about $20 and make your own. I make mine for both the radiator and oil cooler.

it would be cheaper to buy some sheetmetal. cut it to size. it would be a savings of $50.00 or more. ill try to get it done this week.

You definitely want to use the aluminum mesh. It's a little bit of work, but not too difficult. I pulled my radiator out to do it. I cut the mesh to size then took 3/8 black vacuum hose, sliced in and then fastened it to the edges of the mesh with tie wraps. I then loosely tie wrapped the screen to the radiator. It looks pretty nice.

It's been great so far. I haven't done anything to it since I bought it from you, other than basic maintenance. I've taken it to MSR a couple times and had a blast. I'm hoping to get quite a few track days this year. So what are you riding now?

I am glad you are enjoying the bike.

I ended up getting an '08 ZX-10R after looking at the Busa, ZX-14, and Duc 1098. It was a tough choice, but they were selling the 10's so cheap, I had to jump on it.
