Bulldog had one on his bike years ago, He traided it for a open one.
The company stopped making it years ago and I have not seen one anywhere.
Some people have painted there stock grill silver and put the chrome one around it so It looks like it is chromed in the middle.

bikercom.com has a bunch of different radiator covers for 800 and 1500. I was actually thinking of taking measurements of them and seeing if there was a way to modify them to fit. Just an idea.

First off lets get something clear here.
Are you talking about the one on the right in the pic below, which I think is what chad is talking about and is not available anywhere I know of now.



Or are you talking about something like I have in the pic below. Its an open chrome cover with stainless steel mesh insert.
