Radiator Protection

Similar to most water cooled adventure bikes, the radiator on the 1190 looks a bit vulnerable. I have used Radguard products on previous bikes and they were quick to manufacture a guard for the KTM so I ordered one. The fit is good and I think it will offer a solid level of protection.

You will need to pull the crashbars off the R model to bolt it on and while doing this, I noticed that the brake cables have been rubbing on them already.

Figuring that brake cables are an important safety item, I bought a short length of automotive heater hose and ziptied it into place on re-assembly.
