Radiator Guards
« on: November 30, 2019, 09:29:34 am »
Has anyone used the cheap radiator guards on Ebay?  There seems to two different China brands.

I have the Arashi one on my bike.
Been on the bake about 3 years. No problems.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Arashi-Radiator-Grille-Guard-Cover-Protector-Fit-KAWASAKI-Concours-14-GTR1400/401466144824?epid=10007590045&hash=item5d793f3838:g:39cAAOSw4T5XHfrM

Came shipped flat and I had to form the radius.
   (easily formed it over the OD of a tire)
Also had to tweak the mounts a bit to get them to line up exactly.
I suspect neither was more effort than you need to do on the more expensive brands....

I like the fact that it has little plastic standoffs to keep it away from the radiator.

Ride safe, Ted
