What's Getafix Saying?


Lateral protection to the radiator from the Rally Raid tanks is pretty good overall, but I didn't anticipate that the tank mount (the one with the rubber bushing) could get driven into the radiator and potentially puncture it. I'm don't know if the KTM rad guard solves the problem either as I don't have one.
I fashioned U shaped guards from 3/4" x 1/8" aluminum to wrap around the lower part of the radiator. They were a very snug fit, but I epoxied them on to ensure they stay there ...that mounting tab won't be puncturing anything anytime soon.

Fuel Lines:

To limit wear of the lines on the frame, they were wrapped in electrical conduit for protection.

Ride on.
