    Radiator guard.

    Hello from Denmark. I am new to the forum.
    I am taking delivery of a Dorsoduro 900 next week and am already looking for bits and gadgets ( to kill the 5 months of winter before i can actually ride it )
    Does anybody know where to find a radiator guard ( AF1 does not recommend their own guard for MY15 or later )? Maybe the Evotech for the 750 would fit? I had R&G on all me previous bikes, but they donīt seem to have anything for the 900.

    Thanks in advance.

    Whatever guard fits the 750 will also fit the 900.

    I made a guard from steel mesh, spray painted matt black and fixed to the radiator (discretely) with cable ties.

    Where did you manage to source the mesh from Frodo? I see Super Cheap Auto has it but the sheets are large enought to do about 12 Shivers!

    Awsesome, have PM'd you with our Addie. BTW, I have barely seen my Shiver since I got it. Being short of garage space my son Chris said he would keep it at his place until I sold my FJR1300, he has been regularly seen riding a Shiver around!

    I have on on my 750. The top attachments are good but the bottom attachment tabs fit between the rad and the plastics which put some stress on them. No cracks after a year or so.

    Picked her up today and took her right into the living room. Nothing like that new-bike-scent.
    Waiting for tail tidy and radiator guard from Evotech and carbon exhausts from SC-Project.
    Gonna be a looong winter.
