Radiator protection screen

Hi Guy's,

Has anyone purchased a protector screen for their ZX10R radiator. Would be greatful for a source to purchase one.
I seem to spend a lot of time after riding with a screwdriver straightening out the fins.

Cheers, have a good weekend

John

Post up in the Sponsor section. A while back one of the sponsors ran a group buy on the Cox guards.

heres what i did.



DIY radiator protective screen



Material = Phifer aluminum 36”x84”screening. (Purchased @ Lowes)



Dimensions = overall finished 13”W x 12L” W ½” folded edges for xtra strength



Mounting points = as you face the bike loosen the 8mm bolt in the upper RH corner and slip the screen underneath it and retighten.

In the upper LH corner use a zip-tie to secure the screen through an aluminum bracket.

At the bottom use another zip-tie to secure the screen in the center by using the aluminum bracket.

Fold any excess screen material over the radiators ¼” lip to avoid any excess looseness.
