|KTM 690 Enduro R radiator protector|
UPDATEAfter closer inspection it seemed that the radiator hose was now pinching the regulator wires. This was not the case before the crash (see here for reference). Pinched wires become exposed wires after a while (especially on thumper) so this was a problem. Since the side fairing fit fine and the radiator guard seemed to also fit without a problem I concluded that the radiator / radiator hose had to have bent during the crash. After worrying about it for a day I decided to take a chance and try to bend the pipe&hose back a bit. I snuck a piece of nylon strap behind the pipe and pulled outwards till it started to give. Few gentle pulls and the problem was solved. Nothing cracked or started to leak so I was lucky. Bending aluminium back and forth is generally a very very bad idea.
