Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

I've made this out of perforated aluminium and sprayed it satin black. Works fine. Used cable ties to attach it to original plastic guard.

A very sensible modification what with the shorty front mudguards on these bikes and potential road debris damage!

Measurements 285 x 190mm.
See pic re mounting with cable ties at the four corners.
I used 1mm perforated aluminium and mounted it on the original plastic Honda guard as this allowed air to circulate behind the home made grill. I have detected no reduction in cooling effeciency with this setup.
