Radiator Guard
« on: September 15, 2013, 05:11:27 PM »
Before I order the R&G radiator guard (www.rg-racing.com/browseBike/Triumph/Trophy_1200/2013/RAD0134BK.aspx) for my Trophy, does anybody know of a rival product that's as good or any better, please?

Am I alone in being surprised that Triumph does not offer a version, as it does on the Tiger, given that the radiator seems remarkably vulnerable?

Any comments welcome, thanks.

I haven't found an alternative so I have the R&G one and it is great.... works really well.... bit of a fiddly pig to fit, but once it is on, no problems.

Hi. Beowulf do a reasonable looking guard. See e-bay item no. 310662968167.

Yeah.... that looks pretty smart... would probably suit the Lunar silver bikes better than the blue

My thoughts too. Does look more substantial than the R&G.
