Radiator protector - advice
« on: August 28, 2015, 12:36:55 pm »
I'm wanting to fitting radiator protectors, any advice on which are best, or what I should avoid.
Looking around RockFox are the most affordable, anyone have them.

Cheers

The Touratech option is quite nice although the motorradical setup is also not too bad

I have from RockFox and very well made and inexpensive. The sheet used is thick enough to take a large stone.

I'm also using the Rockfox radiator guards. Excellent product at a great price. R850.00 I think I paid.

I fitted the Motorradical ones and I'm quite happy.

Also ordered and fitted the brake fluid reservoir cover as well. I noticed how my 3.5 year old step on that to climb on the bike, so it would have been only a matter of time before it gets damaged.

I fitted the motorradical yesterday and am very impressed, precision engineering and exact fit.
