10.evans coolant and ktm fan, hardparts radiator guards
That's sounds like a VERY fun project. A word of caution: while I know that at least one AdvRider (El Mur) has got his Hard Parts steel guards to work with the Acerbis tank by creative shimming and swearing, I sure couldn't. There simply wasn't enough clearance. Please consider the Bullet Proof Racing guards. They work simply fantastic under that tank, and provide very nice 1 inch wide flat surfaces for mounting inexpensive tank bumpers (furniture glides). Unless you are going to be roosted constantly, the slight reduction in frontal protection over the stock louvers is a non-issue.

The BPD guards are a work of art and will please you enormously when you see them on your bike.

Note in this pic the difference in widths between the two guards (steel guard under, both positioned as they would mount to the frame):



Please keep us updated with this project, once you get wrenching!
