    Howdy,

    I came across a HLD rad guard for the CT, it seems priced well and I'm curious of anyone here has bought one and tried it?
    How is the fit and finish, and fitment on the bike?

    The one I see is on eBay and is in Greece

    Its priced well at $36

    Any ideas?

    Excellent!

    Looking forward to your take on the guard.
    If possible, snap a few photos?

    Thx!

    Guard arrived a few days ago but festivities have delayed my reply.  :164:







    Looks as good as the FJR one I took off my old bike. The instructions do say there should be some M6 bolts/screws in there but they weren't there. I've emailed them to see what to do.

    I'll have to wait until 26th now to see how it looks on the bike. Not sure if it covers the two corner bits at the bottom of the radiator. :305:

    Hi All

    Good investment as there was an early review of the CT being driven to Scotland by a mag reporter and they had to replace the radiator due to it becoming holed by a stone, it was on my first things I purchased when I got my CT.

    Just be certain there is no chance of any contact between the guard and any of the radiator fins. :002:
