Just ordered these after having all my radiator fluid leak out on my 2014 GSW after having the left set of fins hit by a small rock. Funny thing is, there was nothing around me when it happened--no 18 wheeler to blame, no car passing me. Just some small stone that must have been kicked up by the front tire. Hit across to veins on the fins. Didn't even hear it happen, just noticed blueish liquid running up the tank and when I stopped there was steam all over as the fluid leaked on the exhaust. Btw, the bike will NOT cool without the radiator. I was riding in 55 degree weather and the engine temp was 230 degrees at 60MPH when I pulled over. I learned that you lose the radiator and it's pretty much game over.

The guards in black SS look great, are well made and robust, and should be effective. Fitting the guards to the somewhat flexible black plastic frame is not real difficult, although Touratech's "Ikea like" instructions leave something to be desired. The zip ties don't really fit well on the curved surfaces of the frame and adequately secure the guards without drilling (for the first tie) and grinding a small slot in the tab (for the second tie). Seems like Touratech should mention that - and it wouldn't hurt to use actual words instead of just pictures (that for some reason are reversed on the page, i.e., right guard shown on the left side of the page and vice versa).

I ordered them through my local BMW shop and installed them on my 2014 R1200GS Adventure with little effort. I can see how some may think the directions are bland so try not to think so hard and it will make sense.

Ordered the guards in black and could not be happier. Touratech's instructions could use some simple direction, so here is my insight. The installation could not be easier (once I figured it out), just remove the three fairing screws per side (two on the side and one at the bottom) on the inside of each radiator fairing. That is it. With the screws out, the inner plastic trim comes out. The cut the foam in two, now there is eight pieces, one for each corner of each guard. The plastic edging piece is the right amount for the two small flanges on the guards and the top edge of the plastic fairing (I had about a 1/4" or 6mm of material left). With this done, I used the zip ties to secure the metal guards to the plastic fairing and reassembled. That is it. What I like the most about the design is the guards are about 3/8" or 8mm off the surface of the radiator.
