If you do choose that route though, make sure you put on the rear part to protect the radiator. You can cut down the one from a F650GS Dakar, and use that. With any of these options, a radiator guard is also a must.

CaseJeep, no, that isn't the one I have. And after seeing LukasM's picture, it's definitely too short! Go with one like LostRider has, or the one Bartron and I used, which is from a KTM 690.
