The guard comes with a strip of foam rubber which you stick to the top and sides of the radiator, better still have a look at this,

You can also try making one yourself as well, that way you get exactly what you want :) Much cheaper too.

cebon,

Currently I am a bikeless lurker so take what I say with a grain of salt.....

Having said that, I have heard of people using several of these screens to
get the size and shape they want.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Project-Source-10-07-in-x-12-2-in-Metal-Paint-Grid/999993330

Looks a bit 'getto' but it just might work if you are a bit handy.


Good luck,
LookingHard
