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. There is NO cutting or alterations needed to fit this Rad Guard.
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.

The 1290 needs this guard the radiator is very fine and vulnerable so after a little bit of research decided on the rad guard found it easy to fit and looks good job done!
No problems fitting this product & looks good.
Super fast delivery after payment & very easy online ordering but after reading some of the other comments on wrong instructions I was a bit hesitant in purchasing the product but I must say that they got it right. If you only had a little mechanical knowledge I would say that you don't even need the instructions for this bike it was one of the easiest after market products I've ever fitted to a bike on & looking fantastic in gloss black in under 30minutes thanks guys keep up the good work will definitely spread the word.
I must admit, the product itself seems sturdy indeed and very well finished, but lets face it, first impressions are always important. So when I ordered the unit for the 1290 SA I would have thought I would have received the correct instructions, but no, I got the Super Duke instructions.
*It still wasn't hard to put on, and seems good, I just need to work out how to get it off, as that seems a challenge and I will have to wash dome bugs away now and again.
Good product, but attention to detail needs some work
RAD GUARD Comment,
Thank you Darrell for your feedback, and apologise for the wrong instructions been sent, I have sent the correct instructions to your email.
Excellent piece of kit but instructions were for an Adventure, not a Super Adventure. No mention of having to remove the crash bars and plastic trim from under the headlight.
No need to remove the steering damper (as suggested in the instructions).
That said when all the bits were out of the way a very easy and neat fit and looks the part.
I also used it to support some additional daytime running lights - looks he dogs.
