Cox radiator guards are made to protect vulnerable Radiators and Oil Coolers from all types of debris found on the street or track.
A damaged radiator or oil cooler can end your race or your journey.
Damage can occur to radiators and oil coolers when other racers and/or you have an off track adventure and return to the track with sticky tires covered with rocks and tar balls.
Damage can vary from plugged or bent fins to holes in your radiator or oil coolers. This can lead to very fast overheating and kill your and engine or worse still spilt fluids can cover your tires and possibly initiate a wreck. At best a hole in your radiator will ruin you day at the track or journey.
Replacement radiators are generally only available from factory dealers.There are no after market radiator alternatives for most Sport bikes on the market. Replacement cost is high and the parts will most likely need to be special ordered from the factory. The end result is down time, Missed Races, Track days and significant expenses.
Cox radiator and oil cooler guards are used by factory Yamaha, Corona Suzuki and Honda Race Teams.
The guards are constructed using aluminum then folded with directional expanded aluminum screen for a desired balance of protection, durability and light weight ride.
Pro Guards with titanium expanded metal screens (as used by the top level race teams) are also available by special order.
Installation is simple on most models. High grade foam pads are mounted to the back of the frame for an area of separation between the guard and the radiator core. Approximately 5mm of a "crush zone" is generated by these pads to absorb the medium to large impacts. The guards are mounted so they can float on the pads and not pick up vibrations from the bike or ground.
Mounting varies from bike to bike and brand to brand and is detailed in the instruction kits provided.
Cox Guards are easy to clean and easily removable for deep removal of bugs and other debris. The guards really look great in any color and compliment the sometimes less than attractive radiator/oil cooler cowl area.
