    Looking for recommendations for radiator and oil cooler guards

    Just like the title says. This is my first bike with a fully exposed radiator and oil cooler. Would like to protect those bits but also want it to look good and not a hack job with a painted screen.

    What do you guys have and how have they held up and any issues mounting them? Pics would be great!

    Thanks!

    Cox Racing...iirc made in the U.S. Has all necessary bracketry, whereas some provide zip ties for mounting.

    Mahalo, Oahu Triple. I like the simple look of their guards. They seem a bit pricey compared to my initial searches but if it saves you from being stranded after road debris punctures you radiator then money well spent.

    I also found these guys, Mikes Grills, who are in the UK. I really like the look but like you mentioned, attaches by zip ties and wires.

    Any others?

    i've used Mikes Grilles on a couple of bikes. Attaches by zip ties and wires sounds a bit amatuerish, but they work well and look neat when in place.

    On my current bike, an 09, I have a Radguard type guard. It's Australian so shipping might be a deal breaker

    Thanks for the info Chewie.

    I'll look into the Radguard and see if shipping is not too bad.

    zip ties are not too bad... I have used mishimoto radiator/cooling zip ties to hold fans and so that are almost unnoticeable and give factory looks rather than regular zip ties. (I am sure there is many other brands.)

    I'm starting to warm up to them. They are low profile and easy on easy off. Thanks for the suggestion.
