Is there anything available that will protect the lower tank on my radiators. On my last two bikes I have had problems with roost pelting and denting up the lower tanks. I was thinking about making some louver extensions that would help to protect them. Any Ideas

I've seen some extend the louvers, I made up some carbon fiber pieces and siliconed them on the radiators on both bikes and it has worked great.

Those look like they would work pretty good. How do you make those yourself?

You could use anything really. For carbon fiber you need to use carbon weave cloth and epoxy resin. I had some flat peices left over from making other stuff so I cut them to shape and siliconed them on.
