 :400: and good choice !

MRA Screen gets a big thumbsup from a lot of owners.

All the major players (Evotech, R+G etc) do rad and oil cooler guards at about £100 for both.  Myself and a few other owners got a set for £35 off a bike racer on eBay - they are absolutely fine, fit perfectly, however you do have to secure them with tie wraps which is an issue for some, but not me - you cant see them unless you really look hard.

It'll be worth the wait  :152:

I find the screen surprisingly good in it's high position. But I'm only 5'9"
EvoTech rad guards seem to look & fit the best. But I'm a bit disappointed that the black coating has come off where the spray / road dirt hits it.
