Does the stainless version have the locating lugs?

Weird I would have thought they would be same no matter what the material.

No mate. The locating lugs are the problem and Evotech will need to sort it. I just fitted mine, but my bike is the Sport model with the steel side panels and no lugs.

That’s interesting.

Just check you have clearance between the cover and the radiator on the LHS cover (the side without the filler cap). With the plastic covers I had the problem of the lugs, plus the mounting arm of the Evotech guard fouled the cover such that the screws would not seat correctly - but only on the LHS.


If you got no lugs, and clearance from the radiator guard on both sides, then I guess fitting Evotech guard is just an issue for the plastic side pods.

Yep, I can confirm there are no issues at all. It fitted easily, to be fair. Everything lined up and seated fine.

I went for the titanium look paint – again just trying to give the overall blackness of the bike a wee lift.
Here she is;
That does look very smart indeed, Gareth, as you say significantly lifting the visual aspect in that rather sombre area. Nicely done! I have an oil-rad guard similar to yours, as-yet not installed, and may give it a quick once-over with a rattle-can of silver paint to get a similar result.

Ideal Malcvtr and GDM. I didn't realise there was a difference. I figured the silver ones were plastic painted silver.
Can understand now why Evotech missed this.

Cheers Laurence, I'm happy enougth with the R&G radiator guard, but if I am being fussy, and can't we all be, I'm not that keen on the R&G logos.

Haha, looks like we solved that one. Don't buy if you have the plastic covers, otherwise fits nicely.
