Enduro Guardian Rad Cover

Read lots of good things about EG Radiator Cover. Also read in very few places that its noisy/rattles.

I need a very strong cover for my '12 650 adv- which I believe the EG is. But I dont want to hear rattling on dirt roads if the rattling is prevalent.

Im only looking for directly relevant to E G rad plate comments.

Thanks,
John

I have had the EG radiatir guard on a 2014 DL650 for 2500 miles. No rattles so far. Looks great, easy to wipe off & no issues with temps.

Probably about 10,000+ miles on mine, no rattles. Easy installation, looks great, and has not affected engine cooling at all. A very worthwhile farkle.

22,000 miles on mine about 8,000 of those on dirt roads and jeep roads. Never rattles. Great investment.

Yann's skid plate is incredible too. It is well worth the investment.

61000 miles, rad cover, skid plate, givi crash bars, no rattles. Proper torque and heat resistant bumpers help. Yann hiway pegs last 10K miles, awesome

Installed mine before my 11k mile trip to Alaska. Rode some rough stuff along the way. No rattles yet. Good product IMO.
