Rode to a remote little village called Youbou. Ended up on a wet gravel road. Afterwards noticed that the muck spray had made it through the radiator cover and dented up some of the lower radiator fins
Headed to Home Depot and bought some aluminum screen metal sheet.
I cut out a section to fit inside the inner area of the radiator cover, drilled some holes in the plastic rad cover, painted the aluminum black and then zip tied it in behind the cover to prevent any muck from damaging the radiator in the future. Oh, and I also used an ice pick and straightened up the bent rad fins.
Can hardly see the addition.
I do wonder a bit about airflow, but can always just remove it if I need to.
