has anybody come up with a good solution for side impact to the radiators? I have been looking but can't seem to find any radiator braces.

I would advise seeing exactly what was replaced during the crank replacement.
Do you have to replace the complete crank assembly to replace the connecting rod?

Yes, I purchased a piece of aluminium tubing and I cut it to fit between the two lower ears of the radiator. Then I taped the tube's ends so that the side scrowd bolts would fit. Next I marked and cut the plastic radiator guard with an hobby knife so that the tube would seat infront of the guard. I could email you a photo.

In October I tested the setup and it did very well. I did not fair as well breaking my collar bone.

I rode that thing once or twice and sold it. 6 bikes in the garage was more than necessary. Or maybe it was the lack of push button engine start. Who's to say?
