R&G radiator guard
« on: 02 March, 2020, 07:27:22 PM »
Hello Guys,

I am thinking to buy a R&G radiator guard to my MKII.
Has anybody experience with it ? How does it fit for the cooler?

Thanks,
Mark

I have the R&G fitted to my Mk2 , easy to fit 1 bolt on bottom of Rad and 2 cable ties .I did have a slight issue removing the bottom bolt as it was a bit rusty good soaking with WD40 sorted it

Don't bother with R&G rad cover, rubbish, the price they charge the damned thing should be made to fit properly & not cable tied in place, even when using cable ties the positions on cover don't line up with obvious position on the bike, rubber protective pieces to stop cover catching on radiator are insufficient too, definite absolute rubbish, I returned the one I bought & got refund. A better cover/guard if you must have one is made by Beowulf, these fit properly & look better, they do either black, polished or brushed stainless steel plus two styles

+1 for the Beowulf.  :028:  The bottom of the guard hooks over the radiator, and at the top you take the two existing bolts out of your radiator mounts, put your Beowulf on, and put those bolts straight back in. No cable ties required.

No idea about the R&G version.  :027:

I've just ordered a radiator guard from Beowulf. Also a carbon oval silencer.
Deborah was very helpful, pointing out delivery is free to mainland and there is a 15% reduction using code FB419.
Will let you know how I get on !!

Well the radiator guard & exhaust arrived on the Beowulf advised.
Lovely pieces of kit and easy to fit once you gain the confidence to follow the advice given on this site.
Many thanks indeed to Snibor, Richardcbf & Tommo2.

Will now browse the site for the advice on removing the ballast plate on the side away from the exhaust.

Would love to go for a wee blast but feel guilty due to the dreaded lockdown - thankfully I have a garden, a garage with the bike and a Honda S2000 to keep me occupied.
