Radiator braces/cage

Recommended Posts

What kinda of radiator braces/cage is everyone running? I want something with a strong side impact. I have had the ktm round black tube type braces for many years but want somhting new that offers more complete protection.

When I first came on board, I should have asked this question..

I put the EE guards on my new to me 09 505 last Jan.... What a POS.. just looked at the Scorpion, for the minimal if any price difference the Scorpion shits all over the EE..

If you care to do a search on my postings.. You'll see my rant about EE and other mfgs..

The only problem I have seen with design of several of the rad frame guards is that they don't protect or support the mount for the rad fairings (plastic) which seems to get the most hits. I have the KTM rad frames on my 07 320 XCF-W and have added a piece on both to give a little support to the tab with the captured nuts. I cut the lower/front tube spacer about 1/4" and inserted a piece of 1/4" AL plate that goes up to the rad/plastic fairing mount tab.

I would love to post a pic, but can't figure out how.

Cheers,
