Oil Cooler & Radiator Guards
on: November 24, 2016, 12:50:12 PM
I'm interested in fitting a pair of oil cooler & radiator guards to protect them.

The Evotech Performance ones look pretty good. Does anyone have any knowledge/experience with them?

Thanks.

Hi Skids.  I've fitted both Evotech oil and radiator guards to my y15 crossrunner.  I'm very happy with them.  The build quality looks good and they blend nicely with the bike.  Fitting was pretty straightforward.  They use existing mount points to attach so the result looks neat. To mount the radiator guard  you need to remove the inner trim panels but this is quite easy as they are only held on by those plastic push-pins.  The instructions that come with the guards are quite helpful in explaining what to do.

Also got the Evotech guards fitted following a holed rad, very pleased with the fit and finish and blend into the bike nicely.

Has anybody found any replacement for the lower radiator grille? It's plastic and I am afraid it will not hold up to some stones shooting up from under the front wheel.

I have looked on the internet and found 1 company in Germany that makes the part I want but I also think it should run under the bike a bit to protect the exhaust pipes running there.

Any thoughts/suggestions? I can always try to make it myself of course.

Must admit I hadn't considered that as an issue. I haven't noticed any damage in the 12000 miles I've ridden my X since last October but that doesn't mean it wont occur so please let us know how you get on with this.  :031:
