Radiator guards and engine temps...

Recommended Posts

Not that it matters at this time of year (my bike is surrounded by snow) but I wonder if anyone ever noticed their engine running warmer after installing a radiator guard. Just asking....

I have an R&G radiator guard installed on my bike.
 
After two months I have seen no difference in heat rising or lowering.
 
I live in Northern Nevada which is very hot in the summer, and gets below freezing most of the summer.

No noticeable temperature difference with mine. Made mine myself with hex/honey-comb patterned thin sheet metal with relative open area of near 90%

I have an Evotech guard on my bike and noticed no temperature difference. It surprised me that there was not at least a slight difference.

Marginal difference on a hot day. Nothing to worry about because the bike has radiator fans.
