Yamaha MT-07 Radiator Guard Installation
Author: Graeme Olsen Date Posted:10 May 2016
We've got a lot of accessories we want to fit to the Hurtle Gear demo bike. First on the list? A radiator guard. Only because after 80km there were already a couple of little dings in the radiator. Time to add some protection.
The Evotech Performance radiator guard for the Yamaha MT-07 is a very simple installation, and basically involves the following steps:
- Remove the side cowlings (done with the Allen key that comes with the bike - check under your pillion passenger seat)
- Cut the included foam strip in half. Stick one half on the top section of the radiator, the other half on the bottom. NOTE: The kit has now been updated to use rubber bungs instead of foam strips.
- Slot the radiator guard into position
- Re-fit the side cowlings
NOTE: The Evotech Performance Yamaha MT-07 radiator guard is not compatible with the Yamaha MT-07 Radiator Side Guards.
The job shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes from start to finish, and once it's on it will provide excellent protection against road debris, but still allow plenty of airflow through to the radiator.

Here's a video of the installation. NOTE: This was filmed using the previous version of the kit that used a neoprene foam strip. The new version now has rubber bungs instead.
