Anyone have any interesting ideas for the oil cooler guard for a S2R 800?

My radiator is a bit messed up from all the stones and bugs.

I've e-mailed Riding-House to no avail. They have the cooler guards for the water radiator and some older S4R guards...

There have been a couple threads on radiator and oil cooler guards that folks have made, but it's been a little while.

Some with various screen materials, and one that I recall out of speaker grille mesh.

Try the 'search' button, see what you come up with.

it's now been powdercoated black ;)

Looks better than the original polish, and matches the other black bits on the engine, but I might have tried to match the frame color.

Still a very nice job..

Thx for the replies... pnut, how'd you secure the guard to the radiator? I can't quite see how the nylon mounting rods work... since I'm o'seas (in Thailand), finding stuff for DIY stuff is quite difficult, but I'm sure I can find some way.

I'd prefer to mount it to the brackets already available to give it a clean look.

The rods are a lot like zip ties. The rod part has a button on one end that hold the part in place. There is another button that slides onto the back of the rod and locks itself like a ziptie.

I got a nice stainless one here: www.whaccessories.com ;)

Here is a pix--->
+1 scooby ... I just did a home-made job by taking a kawasaki's, cutting the grille and getting a license-plate shop to make a frame around it. It's all black and tied on with wire-belts. It only covers the actual teeth of the radiator so it looks a bit funny. But it cost less than $10 US. If i have the time I'll redo them and maybe post some pix too soon of before and after.

j.davis

can't quite follow the plumbing on your two oil coolers, are they running in series or in parallel, and why?

Thanks
