    1200 Rally radiator guard.

    I'm trying to locate a radiator guard for my newly acquired 1200 rally but have been informed that Evotech have stopped making them. All others I've seen advertised are for the standard and TP models and won't fit the rally!
    Am I missing something here, does anyone know of an alternative make? Any suggestions would be appreciated,
    Many thanks,
    Nev.

    I bought the R&G and I can confirm to you that it fit the Rally version: http://www.rg-racing.com/browsebike/Aprilia/Caponord_1200/2014/RAD0153BK/#prettyPhoto

    Thanks for your response, does the oil cooler part of the R&G guard fit behind the original oil cooler guard on the Rally version in effect having two oil cooler guards?

    The rad on the Rally is not the same as the TP rad. The 'Rally rad' (sorry) is curved presumably to allow clearance for the larger front wheel. The TP R&G guard may well fit but make sure there is still clearance on full fork compression.

    Thanks for the advice guys, I'd really like to find an Evotech rad guard for my 1200 rally so if anyone has a good
    Used one surplus to requirements I'd be happy to take it off your hands!

    Andrew Cox, owner of radiator guard maker Cox Racing in Oregon USA, just wrote me to say he can produce them for the Caponord 1200 Rally if he will have ten buyers.

    I've used them on the RSV1000 and Tuono Racing, absolutely top notch stuff with a factory race bike level of fabrication. He did the Tuono guards for me using titanium wire screening!

    This links to an example of Cox's radiator guards for the Tuono V4. Note that one of the available finishes is "titanium", but he also can do them with an actual titanium screening for an extra charge.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'm still after a rally specific rad guard preferably sourced from within Europe, the Evotech product was perfect for the job but they've apparently stopped making them (lack of demand maybe?)

    I've seen no difference...anyway, the Capo is naturally hot and burn oil

    It does fit well and it is a 15 minute and very simple installation.

    Thanks for the reassurance 2brnut2b, it sounds like the R&G guard will do the job just fine, I'll get one ordered today!
