PostSubject: Cheap radiator cover   Fri Dec 26, 2014 12:38 pm

Been eyeing this up:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191434437253?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Just wondered how it fits to the bike. Would it come with self tapping screws that go into the stock plastic cover? Seen an old thread on here where someone purchased it but didnt leave a review.
Thanks

Looks like it fits over the top of the existing one to me? especially as it has no points for fixing other than the three screw holes either side.

Are there existing holes in the standard one or does it have to be drilled?

I have that version on my C800. It came with fixings so just wait & see what comes with it. 
Mine came from the same supplier I think(?) & fits over the original tightly but ok.

Hi Morgan/all. Have had this fitted since last year & it's had it's fair share of crap n rain etc thrown at it & it still looks spot on! 
Yes it seems thin But then again it is 95% flat surfaced with the 90 degree bend helping to strengthen it but the only thing you have to watch is some of the sharp bits that you can/will catch your fingers on when polishing it up! Don't ask how I know ok! 
The original cover gives it the required strength as it attach's to the sides with screws/bolts, I cannot remember at the moment which but anybody can fix it on no problem. 
I believe the same folk sell many other designs as well apart from this one & at a price thats very affordable!

Thats a good price, just keep it protected and it will be good for years. some people buy cheaper stuff and dont look after it and wonder why it rusts
