Default ProPower Billet Radiator Guards

Bought the ProPower Billet Radiator Guards to my EC300 when brand new.

After 18 month I finally had to take the tank and shrouds off. Well the photos are really the review...

do the force guards have bars across the back of the radiator too?

For hard enduro type riding i have found the side impact to be the biggest issue. I had some that were similar to the force with most of the protection to the side of the radiator and then used standard plastic fins and it worked well. Only issue was from the plastic fan housing that eventually rubbed through one of the fins

Hi Matt , the Force has 3 bars on the front side of the radiator for side proctection.

I had Force radiator guards on my last dirt bike and used to crash a lot (...more than I do now ...) . Twice I bent the guards with high speed frontal impacts but they survided many side impacts and front or side impact there was never any damage to the radiators.

Hoping these guards are as well designed!
