Q1. How are the grilles secured?

A. The grilles are secured by a combination of heat stabilised zip ties and stainless  steel locking wire. This method, although   simple, provides an  effective, secure and unobtrusive fixing system that requires no special tools to implement and, more importantly, does NOT require you to drill  any holes in your bike to fix ungainly and unnecessary bracketry, as is often the case with many of the alternative protection systems that are available.

Q2. Will my bike's running temperature be affected by fitting these grilles?

A. No. These grilles have undergone thousands of miles of rigorous testing, not only on the road but also on the track. During this testing there has been no noticeable increase in normal running temperature, even under 32DegC track conditions.

Q3. What colours and finishes are available?

A. Grilles are currently available in anodised gold, powder coated gloss black, powder coated low sheen satin black and powder coated silver.  Other colours and finishes may be added in the future dependant on demand, so if you want something particular then email your requirements to us as we may be able to accommodate them.

Q4. How long will it take to get my grilles?

A. Grilles are only despatched on receipt of cleared payment. Therefore if you pay by Paypal, Nochexs or PO money order, for instance, then it is possible that your order may be despatched the same day / next day provided there is available stock. However a  cheque payment will not be cleared for at least 4 days (even if you see that it has left your account) so it is normally 4-5 days from receipt of your cheque.  For UK orders grille sets are sent by 1st class Small packet rate, so they should arrive the next day - the Postal Service, being what it is, means that it can sometimes take a day (or more) longer. For Overseas postage 1st class airmail Small packet rate is used which is a nominal 5 day airmail service (that means they aim to deliver in 5 days - sometimes its less but sometimes its more) - often deliveries are achieved in less than the 5 days (west coast USA in 3 days have been known). Both of these services are NOT trackable, so no amount of pestering is going to make any difference.

Q5. How can I pay for my grilles?

A. We are constantly looking to improve the ways in which customers can pay for  their orders. Currently payment can be made using the methods shown in the Table below. However, due to the relatively high level of charges levied by third party payment providers, a surcharge applies to some of these methods to cover these charges where they apply.

Q7.. Why are the powder coated finishes more expensive than the anodised?

A. This is because the powder coated finishes require additional manufacturing  processes which inevitably makes them more expensive.

Q8. I want some grilles for my bike but it doesn’t seem to be listed in the application chart?

A. If you don’t see your bike in the Application Chart then we can still supply you a  grille, however it may be necessary for you to confirm certain aspects of your bike so we can be sure that the product that you will receive is a good fit.
