R1250GS(A) Radiator Protectors
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE NEW DESIGN OF RADIATOR GUARDS IS LARGELY THE SAME LOUVERED DESIGN AS IN THE IMAGE BUT NO LONGER CARRIES ANY TEXT
These are an evolution of the original protectors designed for the R1200GS but now modified for the R1250GS/A models, including the Rallye.
Every now and then I come up with what I believe is not only a useful bit of kit but also a work of art. These radiator protectors are absolutely lovely (I guess I would say that but they are!). I tried several designs before I settled on this one, they happen to be the most visually stunning, complex, the most difficult and longest to make. Each part is hand smoothed to give it a quality feel and individual finish - no two are the same.
To get to the final design I took what I considered to be the best (and most expensive) on the market and tried to improve on it. Certainly, the best on the market was very well made but I figured I could improve on the fit which surprisingly wasn`t as good as I might have expected from the market leader. My radiator protectors fit very well indeed.
I also have tried to improve on the function - most radiator protectors tend to lay `flat` against the cooling surface so I designed the protector to have panels which can be formed `out`. What this does is improve on the airflow (by pushing the protecting surface away from the cooling surface) and also afford a good level of protection. What this design also does is allow any impact to be absorbed by the panel, as it springs in, rather than transmit the full impact energy directly to the radiator. The panels can be reset using the supplied angle checker.
Although the protectors do not cover 100% of the radiator I feel that I have reached a very good compromise between maximum cooling and not unreasonable protection.
They are made from high quality stainless steel and are made individually by craftsmen - these items are not mass produced yet made with love, care and pride in Great Britain!
They come with full fitting instructions written by bikers for bikers. They are easy to fit, using the current fasteners and 3 fastening points.
Top Tip!: Some might not need it, but if your guard rattles against the radiator, try affixing the little bits of foam we provide, that should sort it!
Had a set of these on my last steed and was well pleased, so much so I treated the new bike to a set. As with all the items I have purchased from Cymarc, the fit is spot on and the manufacture is second to none. Any problems, you can contact them and they will give you advice.
Would not hesitate to recommend any item these guys sell.

Very easy to fit, look great
A great improvement over the OEM item. Looks the business and will protect from stones.
