Radiator/pump protection

I picked up my 07 last Sat. It was a birthday present from my wife.(not sure whom I love more right now wife/klr?) I'm looking for some rad/pump protection,. I like the radguard and pumpguard from dual star, but just saw the highway peg,nerf bar system at tpi. Does anyone have either? How are fit/finish. Any input greatly appreciated because my klr wishlist is getting expensive and I don't want to have to modify my new modifications.....yet.

I like the aluminum skidplate for protecting the water pump. You can't really go wrong with the stuff from tpi/dual star/klr650.com so take your pick of the radiator gaurds.

Take a look at www.arrowheadmotorsports.com for stuff too. Fred is the KLR families go to guy. Doohicky/balancer lever kits and everything else.

I hadn't thought about the aluminum skid plate I'll check it out, and I like the idea of the extra protection of the nerf bars. Thanks for the input I appreciate it.....

Some people go with a IMS tank to protect the rad, it also eliminates the rad side pannels.

That is true, I never think of that one. I'd rather carry extra weight as gas anyways.
