    Evotech Performance Radiator Guard – Unboxing, Painting and Installation

    I have been in the market for a radiator guard for quite a while and there are a LOT of options out there. I just sat back and read as everyone else posted their recommendations until I found one that I liked the (1) looks of (2) was easy to install and remove (3) functional and (4) didn’t break the bank.

    I settled on the $75US Evotech Performance version. I takes a couple of weeks to arrive but the quality is top notch. The mounting is very clever and super easy to put on and remove. The actual guard arrives powder coated black. Just before I mounted it, I got the idea to use the leftover paint and clear coat from my saddle bag project to “enhance” the looks. I think it turned out very nice.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    I does look nice. It looks like the side attachments just hook around the radiator, clipping on. Is it easy to take on/off, by yourself or someone you don't want to?

    Life is Wonderful, if it isn't you may be doing it Wrong!

    18 centuries of the choice, 'believe this way or die', & always chosen life, is a lineage difficult to separate from. I understand. But do not fear my belief science created the universe, I'll never say "Big Bang's Will" made me do you harm. We are a genuinely free & peaceful lot.

    It would be easy to remove if you had the time and the correct allen head wrench - but the same holds true for a lot of my additions. I am willing to take the risk. If I was overnighting somewhere, I have 2 alarms and a cover.
