Oil Cooler Guard, Black
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.
Please Note: This part fits 2008 and later models. Models up to and including 2007 use part number 8501152. (link under the Related Products)

Excellent, good looking and functional. It was difficult to install, until I bought a set of the "L" shaped torx wrenches. Then, I was able to install it without removing anything, except the thermometer. I inserted the torx wrench thru the screen and into the screw, while tightening the bolt on the other side with a small wrench. This worked quite well. It took a little practice, but again, it is installed very well.

I installed a different way then instructions, or other reviews said to do...I ended up slotting the (2)holes. then buying (2)1" X 8/32 Stainless screws, (2)nuts, & (4) Washers...I loosly attached screws, washers, and nuts leaving slack on the front of Beak...then with the holes slotted, I was able to simply push the Cooler Guard onto the screws, tighten, and was done! took about 30 mins to complete (after buying the fastners)
