But what does it look like on the bike? I would think that the best thing to do is try to hide the radiator and not have a chrome or polished guard that makes it stick out like a sore thumb. :eek:

I was thinking the same thing. I think Suzuki did a much better job than Honda on hiding the radiator. Looks like a nice peice but I would have to see it on the bike too. ::)

why would somebody sell a part for a bike like that without showing a pic of it on the bike? I would hope if that guy is making these things, they would have a 109 to test fit it on at the very least.

Where is this stuff commin' from?

I mean, why would someone fabricate something like that, and then sell it (cheap) on eBay as a one-off?

That VTX radiator always botherd me, It looks like they just stuck it on there as an afterthought, I even bought a chinspoiler for it from Directline, it just didn't look right, Suzuki got it right :bigthumbsup:

I sent the buyer a message asking him to swing by the site and post a pic or two when he gets it mounted. I'll let you know if he responds.

Hey guys. I have been working with the distributor of this piece for a couple of months and I think they just wanted to see what it would bring dollar wise. I just placed my first order of them and they are going to come two ways: With the 1800 lazer cut into the bottom and also with the M109R cut into the bottom. I am waiting for pix on the bike, but so far it looks like a quality piece. I should have them in a week to two. The mfg is moving slowly on them because he is not sure of demand. The first batch had the big Suzuki S on them and we were successful in getting them to drop that and now this is the second batch. Once I have better pix and install pix I will post them with pricing.

I'm thinking it was made by H.A.C. Products or by Highway Hawk. Wanna bet? ;)

another thing you gotta worry about is proper airflow to the radiator. It MAY look like it will let air through but too many flat surfaces will create turbulence in front of the radiator and cause overheating problems. I've seen it happen in the street rod realm when somebody decides to make there own grill and end up causing all kinds of problems.

That was my first thought when I saw it. It's a nice looking piece, but it struck me that it doesn't look the right shape out at the sides.
