Radiator guards

Hey guys

I made it, I spent 4 hours to install these freaking guards. Overall very good quality, they are just very difficult to install, the panigale is so tight around the radiators

And this is final result

Yup...went for the Evotechs...they simply bolt on with brackets mounted to existing holes on the radiator area....

Simple bolt on affair...5-10mins Max! Evotechs have the smartest design engineers I guess.

Thanks, I didn't know but don't go with these unless you want to spent 3/4 hours under your bike. ;-)

That's nothing compared to the Cox install. You have to remove the fairings, front wheel, windscreen, grips, forks, gas tank, seat, rear wheel, rear subframe, unmount the tires from the wheels, seat, tail tidy, license plate, turn signals, stickers, clear coat, wiring harness, charcoal canister, radiators, timing chain, valve covers, valves, and I think maybe the pegs too. Then you bolt them on and put it all back together. It's a wonderful way to get to know your bike and it only takes a day or two.

Have a lot of you guys got holes thru your radiator? Wondering if this is something I need to look into.

I had 2 holes on my 1098 lower so I didn't chance it with this one. My radiators looked like pure hell after 20k miles so I started out by throwing evotechs on this bike before they had a chance to get too many dings. In the grand scheme of things they are cheap and it's a 5 minute install. For both upper and lower it's like $175 USD or so.
