Re: enduro engineering rad cages will cooling fan fit???

I agree 100%. Early last year my Force guards saved my WR's rad when a broken branch tried to lance it. It bent up the thick rad guard pretty well, and surely would have done the rad in. My buddy wasn't so lucky later in the season. Same issue - sharp branch end right through his WR450 rad. We removed the right-hand rad, cut up a section of branch to make two plugs, tapered the ends and used them to plug off the rad hoses. Filled it with stream water and rode it maybe 6-7 hilly and tight km to the truck with no overheating issues

Side brace-only guards are only useful in tipovers in my book. Maybe that's fine if you ride in more open terrain. Our trails are tight, wooded and rocky. It's too steep and rocky to tow a bike in most places we see too, so you better make sure your bike is as bulletproof as it can be.

BTW - My EE's bolted on with the fan kit on my new 390 with no mods.

I used the earlier OEM fan kit 06-08 with my EE radiator guards. The earlier fan kit gives much more latitude for mounting and is much cheaper. All the wiring etc.. is the same.

It is very possible, my buddy pierced his radiator with a stick when he had the stock plastic pieces on and it cost him a motor rebuild and since he put the BPD gaurds on he has been trouble free. They do cost a little more but it only takes one stick to ruin the radiator and/or motor and then you will be paying a whole lot more than what the guards cost.[/quote]





That right there is why I'm willing to spend the extra $100 to get the BPD guards over the EE braces. It happens a lot more often then people think it does. And after it does you'll be wishing you spend the extra $100 on the BPD rad guards/braces. Not to mention that you get a life time warranty to the orginial owner, if that doesn't show that a company 110% believes in the quality of their product I don't know what does.
