What? That sounds like a pretty ridiculous design flaw.

So do the gen 3 radiator guards fit a 1st or 2nd gen bike? Radiator guards for 1st and 2nd gens look to be non existent aside from the overpriced evotech piece.

They MUST. Originally on my '08 and '09 650s I used a Home Depot rain-spout guard (around $4) w/ a few zip-ties, and I've done the SAME on my '15 (which you can JUST make-out in this pic)



but ultimately on the Gen 1s I custom-built one like this.



The EXTRA aluminum piece is to keep gravel from getting behind the rad (off the front wheel) jamming the fan.
