    So, I'm thinking about getting a radiator protector to stop all those pesky stones taking a chunk out of it, have you got one and which one did you get?

    I also fitted the Evotech one to my 2020 RS. I was concerned it might spoil the appearance but IMHO it improves it. I got it in black powder coat. Apart from the stone protection, it's so easy to clean and there's no longer the risk of flattening the radiator fins while trying to remove the dead critters. Well recommended.

    Another vote for the Evotech - quality bit of kit.

    I have a 2020 Street Triple R Low. I would like to install a radiator guard
    but cannot find one to fit this model. I mistakenly bought one for a
    2020 RS model and it does not fit so I returned it. Anyone know of a
    correct part number from Evotech or anyone else?

    I have the aftermarket radiator guard made by Triumph on my Speed Triple RS. Looks good and seems to work just fine.

    The RS mounting points are different than the R

    I don't know anything about that as I ordered the one I have from my dealership when I bought my bike two years ago. They installed it for me along with a couple of other things before I took delivery on the bike. Good to know, though, for others on this thread and in case I ever make a change to mine. Thanks.

    Yeap, I did the same - Evotech for 2020 RS and can recommend it (pay attention: mounting points in 2020 RS are slightly different than in -2019 RS)

    Evotech for me any day of the week, they fit great and look good, they don't let the bike overheat either (when it's hot that is).

    For anyone thinking about getting a rad guard, just get one and if you can't find one, make one! Don't do as I did when I bought the ZZR, wait 'til you get a stone though the rad, then buy a guard to fit on the replacement. I just thought at the time "£50 for a bit of painted wire mesh is a rip off". That mistake cost me over £600 for a new rad and £50 for a guard. Tosser.

    Got it shipped Royal Mails from GB. Well packaged, very good quality and
    a very easy installation. I'm happy!

    Speaking of protection .... I have a rad guard but I'm looking for an exhaust protector. I have the Arrow exhaust and can't seem to find a protector anywhere. There's nothing on R&G??? I have a Street Triple 765 R 2020 :)

    Thank you but, unfortunately, that won't do as the Arrow exhaust is triangular not round :( I have messaged R&G and they have kindly sent me a page of templates. I need to cut out the ones that look likely and offer them up to the exhaust to see which one fits best then I will know what to order.

    Try just carbon, the guy is based in Scotland, he only caters for the Triumph range, I've seen the part you require, I got an extended carbon fibre rear hugger for my 2020 Street Triple 765rs, the factory original is way to short and flicks stones up and onto the undertray etc like shotgun pellets, the extended one does what the original should have, it was delivered free, and super quick, you can get each part he does in either plain or twill, his link is below.

    Hi, funny, I have just ordered my rad cowls from him. I've see the one you mean, I'm looking more for something to protect the end in case of a drop. Not that I think one will happen but I'd rather be safe than sorry, £30 to protect £400 is a no brainer for me! Thanks though :) Something tells me I'm going to be spending quite a bit with him, he has some awesome stuff :heart_eyes:
