    They're in production but taking a little longer than expected. Due to the overwhelming interest in this product we had to double our initial purchase, and because these are all hand made its extended the ship date. I'm hoping to have a better idea of the ship date just as soon as possible. We really appreciate everyones patience...

    I’ve ordered a few new OEM rad guards there taking forever to come in and once I get them I’m going to a radiator shop to have tabs attached to my radiators to convert them from a SM to a SE-R. Just put a fat tire on my front and a little worried about clearance especially when trying to follow the pros I’m trying to follow.....

    @Quazzymoto fatty tire on the front will make contact with the radiator & guard if you use your suspension as intended

    Well that’s not good.... looks like I’m going to tighten up my springs and keep an eye out on that... was just dying for a sticky front tire. Thanks for the heads up....

    I got a new OEM guard from RockyMountainATV in 7 days
    I also run the Shinko 216 Fatty with no contact issues
    If I get contact, it's from the fender

    Almost every tire I use on my SE makes some contact with the rad. The 216 while my favorite tire was the worst and hit it pretty hard. I strongly suggest the metal rad guard that been linked a couple times in this thread. I think it's from Australia.

    Now I’m nervous. I have ridden with a friend who’s 950 has had front fork upgrades and he has soooo much more clearance than I do and he is running a fat tire too...I will keep an eye on for that, also I like that metal guard but I’m wondering if since it doesn’t have the moulded louvers on it if it catches less air? My 950 runs on the hot side...

    I was making contact and tore my OEM radiator guard with the fatty Goldentyre GT 723 when bottoming. I have had good luck not hitting (maybe didn't notice but will pay extra attention now) with a Pirelli Scorpion Rally 90/90-21 and a Motoz HT Desert 90/100-21. To be on the safe side, I went with a Pirelli Scorpion Rally on my recent change.

    Still waiting on the manufacture in Asia. They had a problem bending the first batch and had to start over. I’ve got 5 prototypes from them that all came out great. Not sure what happened to this batch. I did go ahead and doubled our order so we should have plenty of future inventory when these do arrive

    On a side note I've been working with QD Exhausts in Italy to develop a performance based full exhaust system for the SER. 100% stainless! Held together with springs for durability and crash resilience. Larger header tubes for performance. Reasonably priced... something like $1399

    Have them on my SE and 1190.
    No touching on the 950 and great on the 1190, my previous on on the 1190 was actually tearing the radiator aprt with vibrations, this is much lighter.
