Probably no more prone to cooler damage than the tens of bazillions of Japanese water cooled sport bikes.

Consider the guard as cheap insurance. All it takes is one stone ... one screw ... one nail ... while riding at 75mph to park you on the side of the road.

Good point! I decided on the EvoTech since I like their 3 piece set for the HM.

Evotech really cleans up the front & protects the head & coil too if you get the 3 piece kit. It’s amazing how much the front tire kicks up...I even get pebbles thru the vents in the front fender. Great fit & easy to install if you have a medium length T handle 5mm as the engine & oil cooler guard fit together & mount with 2 5 mm bolts from the bottom oil cooler mounting point.

Except I got a radiator guard on ebay for about $25.00 that fits and seems to protect the radiator LOL. I'd check there and ali express and save some do re mi.
