It would be impossible to fit onto the stock louver. A custom one has to be fab'd along with some mounting brackets for the louver.

FYI.. you can buy the outerwears material in X" x Y" sheets and make something on your own if you want. The one shown above ends up being like 45$ shipped. I've ridden twice now with it and the plastic has started to rub a hole thru it :(

Thanks. I was looking at them and I seen that but I was just hoping to see the actual guard cause my nefew definately needs more than just an outerware ... lol

The proof is in the picture ... lol

With the guard you have to fabricate it out of perf. aluminum. And it's a good idea to mount a puller and pusher fan onto it.

I purchased the outerwear bag and then started with a cardboard template to reverse engineer the actual shape and size of perforated aluminum I needed. I then continued using cardboard and some thin sheet metal templates to fabricate the mounting "louvers". I made mine similar to the warnert setup that bithell and McGill used.


Don't forget that you absolutely need a pusher fan mounted to front of radiator, behind the outerwears thing. You will need a custom mount for that, along with wiring and an on/off switch. This switch could potentially be the headlight switch if u are good with electrical.
