The Video Instructions that are on this page feature the S1000RR, but fitting is much the same.
Note: Because we value your safety and the ability to withstand wear, pressure, or damage over time to your BMW's radiator, you will have to trim a small portion of the black plastic panel that sits above the radiator so that the top two Rad Guard mounting points can be fitted into position.
THIS IS THE ESSENTIAL AFTERMARKET PART!!!
Each Rad Guard comes with its own easy to read fitting instructions. The Rad Guard is bolted onto existing mounting points.
The Oil Cooler Guard is cable tied on to the black fairing/cover on the bike.
Aircraft grade 6060 T1 –T5 aluminium is used to manufacture our Expanded Mesh & Frames.
The rigid frame of the Rad Guard holds the expanded mesh in place so that hard hits by stones and any other road debris will save your core from certain damage. This rigid frame also acts as a brace to prevent the radiator core from being squashed if a side impact occurs. For example, the bike falls off the stand.
The Expanded Mesh has proven to be the perfect choice of material. It is lightweight and very strong. It does NOT restrict air flow.
The Expanded Mesh sits off your radiator core by approximately 10-15mm, so even a direct hit from a stone, bird or any other road debris will save your radiator core from being damaged.
All Rad Guards come with rubber backing were necessary to alleviate any rubbing or vibration. This has already been installed on the guard.
All Rad Guards come with a 3 Year Transferable Warranty.

Superb fit, very robust, look great!!
Dealing with the company was very straightforward and painless. The radiator and oil cooler guards were dispatched promptly and arrived very quickly. Fitting was straightforward, if a little fiddly. The top brackets on the radiator guard needed a little manipulation to seat properly and for the right hand side bolt hole (looking front on) to align with the thread in the top of the radiator. Minimal plastic had to be removed to fit the radiator guard and the cut is invisible. I was a bit wary of relying on zip ties to hold the oil cooler guard but I can't see any other way of securing it given the architecture of that part of the bike. The zip ties are made from quality material and once the plastic shroud is put back in place, everything is held securely. The black looks very good against the red of my bike. This is the second Rad Guard I have fitted to one of my bikes, the previous one being on a Honda Crosstourer 1200X which I took to Cape York. The Rad Guard withstood the rigours of the corrugations and gravel of Cape Development Road and I expect my most recent purchase to serve me just as well.
Buying online and delivery were fantastic. Had bike shop fit before delivery (took about 30 mins) and all is well. Will wait to see how they go but look great and seem to do a good job of covering the big radiators.
Quick easy transaction, good price, arrived quickly.
Well made, looked really good (I got the black). Fitment was straight forward and looks really good on my BMX S1000XR.
Ordered the Rad guard before I picked up the bike, gave it to Blacklocks Bmw to gut it up. Small modification to fit but not a problem. I wanted the guard fitted so as soon as I rode out it was covered. With such a large radiator area I was not going to take a chance. Perfect fit, looks awesome in Black on my Red S1000XR. Thankyou Rad guard, John Hurst
I have had a RadGuard fitted to a previous bike (DL650 VStrom), and based on the quality and ease of fitment on that bike, I purchased the BMW S1000XR radiator and oil cooler kit. The S1000XR has a huge exposed radiator, and I was concerned about damage while touring beyond the city limits. The guards arrived in a short time, well packed, and were easy to fit. The workmanship and quality of finish was excellent. The minor modification to the bike as required to the plastic above the radiator was no hassle at all, and was explained well in the instructions. If you take your time and be careful, the mod is barely noticeable. I can now breathe easier as I cross the Nullarbor again.
I have just been touring the Victorian Alps on my newly acquired S1000XR. With a lot of roadworks and some dirt roads I was very pleased I fitted the radiator and oil cooler guards before I left. They did exactly what they are designed to do - kept me on the road.
Service from Radguard was excellent. One small request; the modifications to the XR are a bit untidy, perhaps a slightly different top bracket system is needed.
RAD GUARD Comments; Thanks Nigel, hope you have been enjoying a great ride and beautiful scenery! Regarding the mod that you suggested, we had tried and tested different mounting bracket systems but had to compromise strength and longevity. We would rather manufacture something that you can fit and not have to worry about it cracking or vibrating. But we do appreciate your feed back and will always be open to any suggestions.
Quick response for my request for the oil & water rad guards for my XR ,the fit was perfect and the guys agreed at the dealership that it is a good investment , to save an almost dead cert rad killer stone chip doing its stuff in the engines nether regions. I think these should be fitted as standard equipment but then they would cost twice the $$ !
Perfect fit & finish ,happy customer.
Received my Rad Guard kit ito my door within 48 hrs, perfect fit and looks fantastic ! Many thanks for an excellent product.
