BRUUDT Radiator Guard
« on: May 05, 2017, 04:45:09 PM »
Just ordered one of these radiator guards from Germany . :800:
 Bruudt - CNC machined aluminum powder coated with stainless hardware . About $ 75.00 shipped to the US.  I looked at the RG one but it is so cheaply made and does not fit well at all. Also was looking at the Evotech guard. I'll update once I get it .
Anyone have one ?

I'd be interested to hear people's experience with radiator guards, it's one of the additions I would consider to protect the usual exposed rad.  Although for all that, I've never actually had any damage on previous bikes with a similar arrangement......

Better have a search too, this must have been discussed before!!  :034:

That BRUUDT looks like it would allow more air flow than the R&G (which I already have)........something which might help in South Florida!!  (BTW......fitted a Fender Extender to my 2014 X last week. Fit was good)

100%!!! I installed mine after a year and 14,000 miles and after seeing the difference I think I should have done it from day one. Now I don't need to swirl around water to prevent my engine/radiator to get all dirty.

I spend most of my time riding western NC and northeastern GA. The rocks are golf ball sized and very pointy. I find them lodged in the radiator sometimes and in my exhaust. I have found them between the case, oil filter, and exhaust. Just kind of stuck in there.

The BRUUDT radiator guard arrived in perfect shape, very well packaged. It is surprisingly light but looks to be quite sturdy. Flawless finishing and paint, very well made, the quality of the product is evident. Looks fantastic, waaaay better than the RG guard looks like it came of a tractor after comparing it with this one. Three minute installation. Perfect easy fit. Here's a few pics ...
