R&G Radiator Guard
on: September 10, 2013, 06:40:48 PM
Ive bought an R&G rad guard for the CT and was fitting it at the weekend when i found a potential problem i thought id make those with one aware off.

At the top of the guard there are two mounting brackets,  the one that uses the rad mounting bolt fouls the fork yolk on full left lock.
Well it does on mine, only just touches it but it does push on it, not a problem in normal riding but it could be hard up against it if you lock the bars for security. I filed away a little of the bracket and its fine now.

Might be worth those who have one having a look.

I was sure that mine didn't touch,but I still had to go out and have a quick squint :038:Mine has 1mm clearance in full hard lock. Maybe a small round file on the rubber grommet might allow enough pressure on the bolt to give an extra mill.
Maybe just unlucky Paul  :027:

It was only just touching so i can see why it may be clear on some and not on others. Just thought id mention it.
