h-e-l-p Aussie Radiator guard supplier

Guys (and girls..... Just in case )

My pani is sitting at dealer waiting patiently on me for weekend pick up. My dealer is adamant that he can't get hold of evotech or R&G radiator guards, some hold up on his delivery and wants to fit at first service . However I'd rather have these fitted before I ride it out the show room. Does anyone know where I can get these from tomorrow in Australia to express post them to me for Thu delivery so I can have my dealer to fit Friday before pick up?

Wallaroo has already told me a contact for AMC motorcycles, rang them but they were minimum 10 days delivery for the R&G. Does anyone else have some Aussie based options. Really want the R&G but would settle for evotech if I could get my hands on ASAP.

Thanks guys...let me know

I wouldn't worry too much mate, our roads are much worse in NZ, and I haven't fitted any guards and I don't have a mark. Just ride it, enjoy it, fit the guards when you can

Check out this thread, my post further down, Warp Speed is the brand you are looking for. Frasers in Perth fitted them for me. http://ducati1199.com/ducati-1199/13...alia-fail.html

I've done 4,500km on some pretty gnarly west Australian roads and they still look good (actually never even looked anthem again!)

I have an EvoTech lower radiator guard fitted. Took about 2 mins to install and I am very happy with it.

You will find them on eBay with worldwide shipping.

Good Luck.

Not picking up your Pani straight away.. because it doesn't have a radiator guard fitted ??!!!

Now I've heard everything.

1: Pick up your bike
2: Ride bike (Stanwell Tops on Sunday morning would be good)
3: order guard (order me one too.)
4: fit at first service.

I've got 2500klm riding around Sydney, my radiator is fine.. (I'll show you on Sunday :-)

Hey Josh I wouldnt have ridden my bike either if I didnt have the guards fitted.

I have done 2000k's on my bike over the roads here and already I need new taillights because they both have holes in them and numerous chips.
I really would hate to think what my radiator would have looked like

At least the lights are only $270

Hey Josh...on the move this weekend, packing the house up so riding time is going to be limited to sat morning unfortunately....bad timing...

As for guard, i'll still pick the bike up, simply cant wait anymore, 5 months has been enough...would just prefer to have had rad guard fitted before I ride it out.

Im not too sure on the warp speed guard....cable ties to secure? Doesnt really sit right with me...the evotech / R&G IMO seems like the option after the reviewing various thread discussions, just cant get my hands on one of them quick enough
