RADIATOR GUARD
« on: July 05, 2018, 07:50:31 pm »
I've been kicking around the notion of getting a radiator guard put on my 2016 for a while.
Picked one up from Fleabay about two weeks ago and put it on. Good quality and super easy to mount, just one bottom bolt and 2 zip-ties. This was not a "brand" name piece rather a generic guard that I've seen other similar varieties on line.

It's been hot (mid-90's) in North Carolina the last week. With the guard in place the bike is now running at least a full bar hotter,  I wasn't expecting this much of a temp increase :o  The fan comes on almost as soon as I come to a stop. I'm sure this won't be a problem later in the year, just curious if others have experienced the same scenario.

I've got a fenda extender on the front, and now I'm not so sure if the guard is all that "necessary" as I've taken it off so the bike can return to normal operating temps for the summer.

Isn't this the C-14 accessories section?

Okay, I see the moderator moved the thread to the C-14 section, my bad.
