Evotech Guards
« on: January 09, 2018, 06:53:14 PM »
 I’m thinking of buying a 2018 XR, has anyone fitted their S1R  Evotech rad and oil cooler guards to an XR?
It look the same on the Evotech pages but has a different product code.

Hi mate, 2018 XR nice! Couple videos on you tube BHP bikes is one which shows you how it is fitted, (evoTech)
I went eBay a got a cheap pair for around £30 that slot into the fronts and wire tight, actually really good and no issues at all but hellish cheaper than £150!  :305:

Thanks guys but, I already own the S1R kit, and am trying to find out if it’s worth removing and fitting to the new bike.

I believe the R, RR & XR share the same guards, so you should be fine..! :028:

took mine off of my R and it was easier to put them on the XR.   :047:

Had the Evo Tech rad and oil cooler guards fitted to my XR before taking delivery last June, apart from protecting the rads I think they look smart and are in keeping with the rest of the bike,definetly recommend and worth the money. :028:

Agree.  Not only was the price very reasonable compared to less smartly built guards, they were easy to install and look terrific.  :062:

Just a word of caution if you have guards and ride all year round. Occasionally pop them off and clean the rads as crud builds up behind them and stops the rads cooling properly. First thing you notice is the fan working overtime.
My bike is washed quickly after every ride in the winter and usually once a week properly but it still built up. Now pop the covers off occasionally and give the rads a really good clean, makes a huge difference to the running temperature.  :028:
