Radiator braces or Guards or both?
Posted March 08, 2006 - 10:11 PM
It didn't take much at all, I just dropped my bike in really really soft sand.
After searching around the net, I found that the prices to replace this sucker is unbelievable.
The stocker radiators are real weak, the best thing to do would be to replace them all together, it would cost me about $600 Australian to do so. Even at $US400, they are not cheap.
Good thing is that the radiator is not leaking. It is not that bent either.
The big question would now be which would be the way to go? Braces or guards?
Devol guards? Works connection braces? Unabikers? There is a lot available.
I am swinging towards the Devols, as they seem to have a strap that stops the rad being pushed back.
I would like to hear everyone else's experiences / comments on this please, this is what makes Thumper Talk the ultimate resource that it is!

Myself and a fellow biker did a lot of research on all the rad guard/brace options. The Unabiker is a guard and brace in one. A recent thread showed a lot of support for this brand and the price is not that much higher than most - around US90 thru TT before shipping.

I bought a set of Fluidyne Rads but I'm still running the Devols
I'll be looking at some Una-bikers soon.....

Of course I am, I don't think there would be better out there but having to buy 2 sets is expensive.......
Matty, are you considering the ozi made B&B Aluminium ones??
How are yours going?

I know why everyone likes them so much!
The picture in the TT store does not do them justice, they should change it and they would sell more I think.
You must check out their website for anyone else thinking about them!
