Cox Racing BMW S1000RR Radiator Guards

Cox Radiator Guards are an inexpensive solution to a potentially very expensive problem; a leaky radiator and/oil cooler can lead to not only rashed bodywork, but also an over-heated motor, leaking head gasket … a trip to the hospital – the list goes on. The culprit could be as small as a rock that made its way into the rad.

These screens come shaped to fit the BMW perfectly and include everything you need for an effortless installation with or without the radiator mounted to your bike. Each guard’s frame is constructed from 5051 aluminum and the expanded aluminum screen is durable, yet lightweight and strong to withstand debris.

We have these in stock and ready to ship. Call TJ at 866.931.6644 ext 817 to have him send you this radiator and oil cooler protection kit today. If you have any questions about this product, send an email to FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM with the subject line BMW RAD GUARD and we’ll get back to you right away.

Simple instructions, sticker-backed foam pads, zip ties and stickers come with every Cox Radiator Guard.


We will install this same radiator guard on our own BMW race bike

Installation Guide

Here’s how we installed the Cox S1000RR Radiator Guard on our bike. The first thing you need to do is remove the left and right fairings from your bike. It’s a tight fit as BMW did a good job of making sure as much air as possible went through the two radiators behind the front wheel. There are a myriad of drain plugs on the left-side bodywork that make removal somewhat difficult. DO NOT yank the bodywork off, take your time and gently pull the hoses out of their clips as you move along. The turn signal harnesses too, have to be pulled. A pick-like tool helps to release their locks.

Once you’ve got the bodywork off your bike, you need to apply the included foam pads to the guards themselves. Do the upper as shown. We found out later that it was kind of pointless to add the zip ties before we got the guard on the bike.


The oil cooler. Notice the copper washer that’s been zip tied to it, that’ll come in handy later when you button everything up. Zip ties are helpful if you pre-install them here.


Remove the screws on the upper sides of the oil cooler. After you’ve done that, you’ll have to pull the cooler from its lower support by removing the C-clip in the bottom center. Be gentle with this as you need it when you put it all back together.



The washer on the oil cooler’s lower dowel is to be discarded. Use the one provided by Cox. As you can see, it’s narrower to accommodate the guard’s mounting bracket.


Now you can add the oil cooler guard. Start by guiding the lower bracket over the dowel pin and then loosely securing the zip ties around the cooler’s upper brackets. Once you’ve verified that everything looks good, you may cinch the zip ties down. You want to squish the foam pads a little, but not to the point that they’re completely flat. After that, insert the dowel back into the lower bracket and add the provided washer to the grommet and secure everything with a C-clip.

The upper guard is a little more complicated. First, line up the lower tabs that go between the rad and the oil cooler and insert the screws enough for them to catch, but don’t tighten them just yet. Be careful not to smash the guard into the rad at this point! Now carefully thread each zip tie around the upper rad mounts. This takes some finesse and a pick with a 90 degree bend is very helpful for getting them around each guard.

Here, you see the upper left radiator mount.


The upper right rad mount was a real pain unless you’ve got tiny hands.


With the zip ties in place, but not tightened, fully screw the oil cooler to the upper rad. After that, tighten the zip ties and, just like the lower portion, you want the foam to be squished, but not flat.


Now is a good time for a good once-over.


Just add bodywork, your radiator is now safer than it was before.

Nice photos.

Washer is AN Cadium plated, Gold Araidite, type 2,
Carbon steel, mill S7952, specification qqs636 cold rolled

AN stands for Army Navy, which I just found out.
which is itself a international standard.

Put mine on today. Thanks for the pics. The C clip was a bitach to get back on even with that little washer. It was easier after everything was bolted back on.
