having custom rad guard made

I met a guy recently,a biker, who is a fabricator.He is working up a rad guard for my '08' Versys.Just this morning he did a 'fitting' with a 'dummy' he made for test before fabbing the finished product.It seems like it will be just what I am wanting.It will have a nice feature to allow ample airflow,but excellent protection from particles/objects. It will attach using the 4 screws on the radiator frame.I should have the finished product on by Thursday,07/03.The guy said he would be interested in producing more if there was any interest.The good part is that it will be right here in the U.S.,so no high shipping expenses. I will plan on posting photos when complete. Cheers......Lefty.

Delay

I thought that I would have it fitted by Thursday the third,but my mistake,the guy wanted to do a second fitting with the dummy after modifying it before making the finished product.That was on Thursday,so hopefully the finished cover will be done soon.I plan on posting photos of it before mounting,and mounted, so as to give a full view of it.Soon hopefully,...........Cheers.....Lefty.

Most of that was B.S., but this part I agree with 100%!
