The oil cooler guard protects the delicate oil cooler fins from damage that can be caused by damage from stones, insects and other airborne objects. It's almost impossible to clean an oil cooler thoroughly without bending the aluminum fins and after the while the cooler starts to look shoddy. Fitting the oil cooler guard not only ensures that the cooler is protected but after a quick cleaning with a stiff brush, the bike always looks its best.
The guard is very easy to install and requires no drilling or modifications to the bike. It attaches at existing screw locations on the "Beak" and looks great when installed. The part consists of a two-piece thermo formed ABS plastic frame that sandwiches a stainless steel screen. The frame pieces are solidly bonded together, making the guard virtually bulletproof. The silver frame has a smooth paint-like quality finish but can also be painted if desired, using appropriate automotive plastic (bumpers) painting materials and techniques.
