I've the original Triumph accessory aluminium guard on mine. Excellent piece of kit. Looks good and has some dings in it to prove it's worth.

There's no reason why your engine should overheat / run hotter with a guard fitted unless your cooling system is not working as advertised.

Does  the rad guard protect the oil cooler ?

Just had a payout on a PPI claim so got some spare cash and want to personalise my Tiger. Its only  a 14 plate roady but its for keeps so whats a decent rad guard i should be looking at.
Cheers.

I've used R&G and Evotech in the past - currently on my 2012, I have an evotech that has been on there since 2012. Holds up well, fits nicely. Not sure how easy they are to find these days - saw there are a few on ebay there in the UK.

Keep an eye on the World of Triumph website. They have fairly frequent sales and the Triumph aluminium one frequently appears as a sale item. It's showing at 69 just now but when on sale I think it is around 20 squids. It's decent quality and relatively easy to fit. In fact, just had a look and they are also available (right now) on eBay for 25). I have no doubt some of the other branded ones are lovely too but 70 for what is essentially a sheet of cut aluminium seems bonkers to me when you can get the Triumph one for a third of the price.

Having had a good look @ my rad etc the rad is very high in the bike ,level with the exhaust ,no marks on it at all  after 12 k,but the oil filter is very vulnerable ! Hence I have a cover over mine , a loss of water will show up on dash,& and you can get water any where !  If you lose oil ,the dash will not tell you ,until the bike has seized up ,or you have fallen off here!
