Which radiator guards fit with the Yamaha metal side covers?

Recommended Posts

My bike came with a radiator guard... I think it's an Infinite Performance guard (not sure). In any case, went to install my new side covers tonight, but it's not happening with this guard. B-|  
 
I'm not in love with this guard (it's silver, would prefer black), so I'm fine with just getting another one. I'd prefer one that covers the majority of the radiator if possible but, at this point, I just want something that will work with these guys:

Does anyone know which ones will for sure work with these radiator side covers?

I have those side covers and the evotech radiator guard which covers most of the radiator. It needs some tweeking to get them to play nice together but is possible if you have a dremel tool or similar.
 
I followed luciphur's tutorial here. It's been over a year and no issues with it whatsoever.

Well if you can ever figure out how to make the rad guard work (seems like you'd have to make it work with the one mentioned above too), but you could always just spray paint it black.

Hippie.. howd you get the red in the windows of your rad guards?

The Yamaha billet aluminum side covers will also work with the R&G Rad Guard as well, and probably the Yamaha Accessory one too...

The rad side covers that use a hidden faster generally can't work. Including OEM Yamaha.

Cool. I was more curious about radiator size. I figured it would be the same, just thought I'd ask.

I'm interested in this one; a bit expensive; but the best looking IMO. It comes in Satin Grey and Black color as well.
