Rad Guard
« on: January 24, 2014, 08:42:33 AM »
Mounted the Rad Guard this morning.

As usual up to their normal high quality, only took a few days to arrive and I think they are on special at the moment.

Looks good!  I'm kinda wishing I had sprung for the extra cost and installed a black one of those on mine instead of the R&G one.

Looks really nice.  Have you ridden since installation?  I'm wondering about vibration.

Vibration should be OK, they have some foam tape installed around the the perimeter and fittings.

Haven't ridden the bike yet, been raining, sigh.

One thing to note, you MUST remove it and clean out any bits of tar  / road debris.
A job to do every at every second service or a rainy day, depending on your road conditions.

On my FJR, debris was starting to rub through the alloy radiator.

How much time needed to remove clean and reinstall on the Trophy?  Significant?

My problem the other day is that I can't get the bike onto the centre stand, makes it a lot better to access the radiator guard.

Just undo the 2 allen screws on the bottom black yoke and pop the front scrivet under the fairing and finally the one radiator / RadGuard  8mm bolt.

Less than10 minutes to remove, quite easy.
