    Whatís hiding behind your radiator guards? My T900 after 11k miles :015: Right and Left side both the same!

    I'll have to have a look behind the guard on my XCA! Interesting distribution of insect strikes especially at the bottom of the radiator looking as though the airflow is getting under the guard?

    Though the post is regarding the 900 which has 2 radiators sat apart more in line with the fork legs and not directly in line with the front mudguard like the 800.

    Though off topic my 800XRt radiator never gets anywhere like that, possibly due to the front fender extender fitted from day one doing what it's designed for.. :002:

    I donít think the stuff is coming under the guard, more like itís coming through the fairly large holes in the guards. Prior to the 900 I had several 800ís, all with rad guards and canít say there was ever much debris in the rad. ( note to self, must remove rad guards on a regular basis and not leave them for another two years!)

    The debris in the picture seems to be mainly dead insects which do not come off the front wheel.

    I think you have mis-read my post, I clearly stated my reply relevant to clarify that the 900 rads are not in line with the wheel, to clarify the 900 cooling setup is different to the initial XCa related previous response (#2).

    Hence I added 'off topic' to my 800 comment (as it is a 'T900 rad debris' thread) on the condition of my '800' even though in-line with the wheel and the benefit of a fender extender..
