Default Homemade radiator braces?

Hello to greatly respected society
I plan to make my personal radiator protection, for two reasons
- to save money
- because I like doing things by myself

So, can someone be able to measure their protection, and give me the dimensions? ec300 2011

Here is one of my friend made for his husky

Making your own is smart.
They aren't that much fun to mount to the bike aftermarket.
I've never had a set just bolt right on and walk away.
Its always a pita to get them to fit right and they aren't cheap or particularly built well.

Very nice. I made and used some on my gasgas bikes for years, much more primitive than what you have made. Two features of mine that I really liked were, I made a rod that ran from the outside of one side all the way to the outside of the other side. I also triangulated the brace to run back to the frame, eventually I even had tabs welded to the frame to bolt them to.
