Question---Does the unibiker guards allow for the re-installation of those radiator fins. thanks

i cut about a 1/2" off the front of the vertical stock plastic fins and zip tied them to the unabikers,works quite well in extreme mud. the reason for cutting them is the unabikers are on an angle to the rads and it was needed for airflow :banghead: the unabikers rows of holes actually line up perfectly with the fins :applause:

NC, why re-install the fins. :banghead: Does it help with cooling. It seems to me my bike cools better with the Unibikers on than it did with the stock fins. Thanks, BnB.

Well, I guess I stand corrected. Leave it to NC to have figured out a way to mount the fins back. But then again, he's also wired in a microwave, a keg-erator and a port-a-potty to his bike, all while reducing the overall weight by 72.69 pounds, and adding 12 horsepower :applause:. I tried, but my little pea-sized ball of grey matter just couldn't figure it out...SC

it might actually reduce overall cooling capacity,but in a long high speed mud run it pays off by not clogging the rads with mud. and yes they did clog with either devols or unabikers. for those with devols, the MSR aluminum fins fit perfectly. they were available at chapparrel last i knew ($15). clark, how did you know about the keg-erator? thats still in R&D :applause:

Thanks NC, I knew you would have a good reason.

Exactly what I was thinking. Damn it, you beat me to it. :banghead:
