Just curious on who you guys thinks makes the best radiator grill for the 9? I read the reviews on both that is offered through DLP. The Cycle House grlll had a bad review and I really don't care for the looks of it. The RIS Design seems a bit high. I've seen some on eBay but not sure bout those either. Any suggestions?

Both of those grills are nice.
me and two other 9's went riding yesterday. started to shower so we pulled off on a side road. coolant was spraying from the front of one of the guys radiator. Front tire must have picked up a rock and chucked it in the radiator.
Long story short. got it towed home and found out that the insurance is going to take care of it.
After this I am really thinking about a different grill.

I still love the look of that grill. Can't wait to see it in person.

thanks for compliment.
however, i cannot take credit for making this grill. a friend made it for me and won't be making anymore. one reason is to keep the look limited but he also mentioned that it was a pain in the A$$ to remove each individual "S" and debur the edges on the whole thing. it wasn't cheap either, but i think the look that was achieved was well worth it.

here are two more shots of it:
