    Default Chrome Radiator Cover

    I have been looking at chrome radiator covers for my 2008 RSV. But I am wondering how much air flow these things block. I think they look great but if the air flow is reduced through the radiator because of the cover it may not be a good idea. Any experience with these covers? Any particular brand better than others? Fit, Look, etc.?

    I have one on my '09...pretty much from the first year I had the bike (2010). Never had any issues with heat. Don't know if it has protected the rad from stones but 96,000km and no issues.

    I have one on my 2000 (installed 2002). Have 175k-ish miles without issue.

    It isn't a problem and will provide protection.

    Have one on every Venture I have owned, never any issues with overheating. Got mine on ebay, simple install and has held up well.
