It is a great looking piece for sure but I would think a rock can still get through and pierce the rad. A mesh cover would offer better protection.Hey Baycruiser,
Where can I buy a piece like this? Never have I seen such a nice cover for the radiator with the intricute cuts. Is it aluminum?
I agree that not only does it add protection but also as a garnish piece. In the past I had issues with rocks split the rad open causing coolant to leak and of course me being stranded on the side of the road until AAA comes.
Good suggestion, that should help, now to see someone do it!You could always put mesh underneath this grate and get the looks of the metal cover with the protection of the mesh underneath. It's so bulky around the radiator that you would see it that much though. It'd be nice to see this installed on a Valkyrie to see how it looks.
