Anyone put this radiator guard on a 2012?

Just received this guy from areyourshop-a.com from Singapore. Just eyeballing it, it looks too big and the bottom mounting hole appears to be going the wrong direction.

The thing is very high quality and they had it to me in Colorado in under a week. Before I start taking panels off, I'd sure like confirmation that someone put it on successfully.

These look to be for the Wee not the Glee (2012+) the 2012 does not have an external oil cooler. The ebay pic shows an oil cooler guard. I tried to fit a Wee radiator cover on a glee and it din't look like it would work.

Your Right

Yea, I looked all over the bike for a place to fit that oil cooler cover. Not to be found.

I didn't know it, but they did change the radiator and mount in 2012. I'm returning the parts to Singapore and they're changing their Ebay ad.

Thanks,

RR
