Too much going on for my liking. For the best cooling, you just want plain mesh. That big solid piece in the middle will restrict air flow. Not drastically, but more than Id like.

The only Radiator Guard I will use is a genuine Aussie made (in my home town) RadGuard. In fact I just bought one for my yet to be delivered 2021 Z900 https://www.radguard.com.au/products/kawasaki-z900-2017-2021-radiator-guard.html

great this video.
this is the first time that I see how to dismantle all these pieces of plastic correctly. and also how they are intertwined with each other. it scared me to touch it. these little "clips" and other lugs are so fragile. a bad move or if you push a little too much ... and it can quickly end in disaster. and the radiator protection is nice. which does not spoil anything

A radiator guard is a great accessory.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure my dad used to tell me.

I got one like the original post showed with the z900 logo in the middle. Absolutely no issues riding in the UK where top temps might occasionally hit low 30s 'C. I attached mine with some plastic trim rivets, the push in  style so the guard can expand/contract as it heats up. Hope this helps,

I just fitted the same. (Photos in my posts)
I think that the distance between radiator and protection is to less.
So I attached additional Rubber.
I can start driving in March. So I do not know anything about the vibration of the middle part - I will see.
But for this prize a try is worth.  :002:
Much fun
