Bear in mind this is a street bike, if it was more dirt oriented, the guard would be a slightly finer mesh and wrap under the radiator.
So, as I found yet again, a radiator guard, which takes 30-45 minutes to make and install, costs between $50-180. I find this offensive, so once again I made my own.
Measure the outside dimensions of radiator, transfer to mesh. Cut 50mm (2") outside these marke and bend mesh to lines. Offer up to radiator, mark any areas that need trimming or bending. Trim and bend, final fit. Grind corners smooth, paint, apply rubber tape to radiator side tanks to prevent guard wearing through and fit with three cable ties and use fairings to hold the sides.
Materials required: scrap expanded mesh, cable ties, rubber tape, hammertone paint.
Tools required: angle grinder or wire cutters and a file, a vise or something to bend the mesh over (like a bench top), a pen and a tape measure.
The beauty of expanded mesh is that it's strong, yet easy to bend and work, plus if you look at it on an angle, it offers lots of protection from impact at angles, yet offers little restriction to air flow.
It's good enough for road debris and big bugs.:mrgreen:
