Radiator guard question

Wanting to get a radiator guard for my sl. In the spirit of the sl looking for as light as possible. Any thoughts on the motocorse (all titanium but spendy) vs r&G titanium (but with an aluminum frame)? The r&G is under half the price. I don't mind spending more if the quality or weight is that much better, but i don't want to Just waste money either.

Do you know the actual difference in weight? Can't be that much different ???
aren't the Ti guards around 800.00 ??
I put Alum guards on my FE, They are feather light, and weren't very spendy at all.

If you're chasing grams, get the motocorse. A radiator guard isn't heavy to begin with. I put the regular R&G on my dragster and it's already superlight. $70. It does the same job. If it were pounds less like a battery difference, then sure. Not my money though. But since it's going on an SL, splurgeeee. That or take a big dump lol
