Radiator covers

Hey guys! I'm going to be relocating my radiator using the MIMB walkthrough, but I'd like to put a cover over it. I'm looking for some examples of the "home-made" covers you guys have made. Can't wait to see 'em!

Thanks!

Lots of guys cut-in designs and faces like gorillas and such on sheet steel. Remember that whatever you do, it will restrict at least some of the airflow. If I were going to do it...but I never will...I would consider just some good painted 1/2" or 3/4" expanded metal. I know that's not exciting or wild looking, but it will offer protection and max airflow.

I prefer not to do it either, but it's getting rediculous how muddy it gets and it really affects my ride when I'm on an atv trip and ride for 10-11 hours a day. And NO...I'm not going around the mud!!!

I have the superblack quad, so I'm planning on painting as much of the cover as possible, so it's not such an eye sore. May have to sandblast and paint my red racks to help blend everything together...

I've been thinking of this, how about a bracket mount that has a hinge... sooo you undo some quick release clips, and stand the radiator up to fill it, and then lay it down once it is sealed.

Thats a good idea, and wouldn't be hard at all to do... I think we need to get together, fab this up, and become millionairs....LOL....

The radiator on the CanAmX-mr is laying almost all the way down. I don't think there's any rule that says you can't lay it back as much as you want. The fan will pull air through it however. You could always get a new & stronger fan for it. I put mine on MIMB style too. And i too am thinking of fab'n up a cvover for it. I just can't make up my mind on the design. Good luck with yours
