el cheapo radiator guard install

why the newgen 250 has no guard to protect radiator is quite strange. buying one is worse. they are overpriced and selection is few and far between. so i made my own. i used shock absorber mounts(1/4-20 thread) i just cut into two pieces. the rubber is resting on the core. i have slight overhang widthwise into the tanks. horn relocated to coil support.( i run sticks so it was a free mount) the material is plastic 1/8"
perforated.

My pregen has a nice black screen in front of the radiator. I wonder if you can put one of those on a newgen.

It's the stock screen. This is about the clearest photo I have at the moment. You can just about see that it mounts to the frame of the radiator separately from the four radiator mounting bolts. They're not expensive: https://www.ebay.com/itm/87-07-KAWAS...dYCNg3&vxp=mtr

The thing that's surprising to me is that newgens don't have a screen.

Bill, the one in your link is about twice the price of the one in my link in post 5 above.
