I recently installed the Evotech radiator guard on my 2018 Ninja 1000 and wanted to share the process. The instructions from Evotech are useless, and it comes with a bag of parts that you don't use. I've heard of some people installing radiator guards without removing the fairings, but I don't see how that's possible with this radiator guard and the 2017-2019 Ninja 1000. It might be different for other model year bikes, or other radiator guards that mount differently. Despite the lengthy installation process, I'm happy with the quality of the part. It seems well made and was a perfect fit for the radiator.
