Just thought I'd share a home made radiator guard I did for the CT.
Group riding on the back roads is a good way to get a hole in the radiator. Especially with the dense fin design of the CT.
The CT was challenging with its curved radiator and I also wanted to retain the stock cowling. So my first design is very much a prototype.
First you need some security mesh. Either woven stainless or hardened alloy. I used hardened alloy as it is easier to work with.
Then I cut out a template.
Then frame with Pinchweld.
Then I bent the sides to match the cowling and attached to cowling with high strength Velcro.
Finished on the bike. Sorry for the crappy pics.
