I run one on my ninja without issues. I did not feel like it raised its operating temp. Fan rarely kicks on either way.Looks interesting but I'd be concerned about restricting air flow. I'll probably be cursed for saying this, but the only bike I've felt a need to put on a radiator shield was a Vstrom I had that I took in some pretty sketchy places.
Even after 60k miles with it on, and when I took it off to sell the bike, I couldn't see any impacts that would have damaged the radiator. The N1K doesn't have near as open an area to let stuff penetrate as did the Vstrom.
I suppose a well aimed sharp rock could some how navigate the space right between the fork tubes and puncture it but I am not betting on it. Looks cool though and as long as it doesn't add a lot more weight, nor restrict air flow, why not? OTOH I am on a diet and trying to shave all the weight I can from the bike where it makes sense. I have to offset some of my add like the bags and my auxiliary lights.
I have to offset my beer and bacon habit, so I have a lot of weight reduction to do on the bike... OTOH I am on a diet and trying to shave all the weight I can from the bike where it makes sense. I have to offset some of my add like the bags and my auxiliary lights.
Was tight.... Took noting off. Bolts are reachable, but there's a little rubber flap hiding them. One side is a bolt, the other a nipple. The bottom bolt doesn't even line up. But, yepp.... Took all of 5 mins after the bolts were removed.And I have Really big Hands.How much of a biotch was it to install? The upper mount goes all the way through the frame so you have to remove one side of the fairing to remove it right?
