I installed the factory shield over my radiator to save hundreds of dollars in repairs from pebbles from the front tire. If uses four tie wraps (heat resistant) at the four corners, and you will be glad that's the way they designed it. It took twenty minutes to install without removing any fairing.

I got the R&G one 3 months ago and like it. It then became difficult to find in stock but I'd imagine they have 'em now. I have pics somewhere on this forum, with install highlights.

I haven't taken my R3 home from the dealership yet, will do that this week when I get time. Was a spur of the moment purchase after seeing it in person. Generally the first thing I order for any bike is the radiator guard, but this time I ordered the blinkers from TST, and picked up a fender eliminator while at the dealership. I need to order one of these.

Hello, I recently bought a R3 and about a month 1/2 later I got hit by some bish in a black Tahoe, :( it was a hit and run. Well now I'm trying to repair the thing but I can't find a radiator for it, can anyone help me? My friend said I might have to buy a different model and mod it to fit the bike, I don't even know what model to buy or anything, the stock radiator looks like someone's been chewing on it, to be honest the whole bike looks like a dinosaur bit it. :( I took a few pics of the stock radiator just incase though, but can someone tell me a where to get a replacement or name a model that might possibly fit that bike? I'll make all the other adjustments if I need to mod and machine it but I'm not sure where to even get 1, it's my first bike. Here are a few pics though.

Crashing aside, are people really getting stones in their radiators? I live at the end of a 1/2 mile gravel lane, and with 700 miles on my bike the lowers already look like a pack of wild dogs have been using them for teething rings :( but I've never put on a radiator guard, and never had a stone in a radiator. I seem to remember maybe my ZX6E had a screen, stock? maybe.

Mine looks a little rough after 1500 kms as well on the bottom. Just installed the Yamaha rad protector, we'll see if that helps at all.

Thank you so much! I've been looking for 3 days... And wow these parts are pricy! But I guess this is the price I pay... As far as rocks In the radiator I suppose it's true... I've never had that problem but if you live by gravel or something then I can see how it's possible

When you check the other sites the section you're looking under is "Radiator Hose" on the list.

I have another question for some of you in here maybe you can continue to help me out, when I got my bike from the impound it was demolished! It had no front forks cuz they snapped and the rim was broken pretty bad, here's a few pics :(

If you look at one of the pics I zoomed in you can see the crack on the rim so I labeled it useless!

Yeah - the wheel is toast. I'm thinking insurance will total this one. Check steering head (frame section between triples) for cracked paint or other obvious signs of frame damage before contemplating front-end swap.

The bike didn't even have insurance on it because they were charging me outrageous prices for it... I was in a hit n run, some lady rsn a red light and smacked the **** out of me and kept going... To be honest I'm lucky I'm alive.. But it doesn't scare me from never getting on a bike again... I either want to fix this bike and buy a new better one... This will just be a commute bike that's why I'm trying to take the cheapest rout to fixing it by buying used stuff here's what the stem looks like to my bike... There is one piece that's Bent on the frame but I'm thinking I can straighten it with a welding torch by applying a little heat

Bought a R&G radiator guard from my local store, cost 90 SGD.

The instructions on the manual given wasn't detailed and I was stuck with not being able to remove the fairings fully, had to turn to google halfway.

What is stated as a 20mins job turned into a 180mins one. Also dented some of my radiator fins ( the irony :( ) while trying to slot in the guard as there isn't really any free space due to the abs adapter ( i think ? ) right infront of the top radiator mount.


For those who intend to remove their fairings, this is a great guide :
