Radiator grill covers on ebay

Has anyone purchased the SS grill covers being sold on EBay?
If so, What do you think? Around $33.00 which is not bad.

i wonder if the steel will retain heat rather than dissipating it. once it gets warmer out i have to replace exhaust manifolds so one could find its way on

I also had the same one on my bike till I took it off just for a personal change at the beginning of the past riding season. I never had a problem with or without it on.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

The early (1978-79) Honda CX500D had a metal radiator shroud and metal grill that was a lot more restrictive than the SS covers being sold on eBay, and those bikes had no overheating issues due to the Radiator Cover... their overheating issues were due to a bad water pump impeller design which was fixed in the 1980 model.
