Although they were included with the extra bag of stuff when I bought my '01, they were not installed, and I've never missed them or felt it needed anything to cover up the side of the radiator.

Here is the cheapest on Ebay: (at least for today)



https://www.ebay.com/itm/01-Yamaha-F...1ae7Ya&vxp=mtr




Partshark is one of the online dealers that a lot of us use. Here is the link

Parts #42 & #43



https://www.partshark.com/oemparts/a.../radiator-hose



I would normally recommend posting a WTB (want to buy) thread in the classifieds but in this case, I don't think you will get too much cheaper than Ebay. Someone very well may have a pair sitting around they do NOT need.....but even if someone gives you a pair (we do have awesome people like that) .......you would still have to pay shipping. So honestly I do NOT think you are going to get much cheaper than Ebay.

All the covers do (I think) is keep anyone from touching hot radiator.

Make or rework anything you like.

Possibly other bikes radiator covers might be more appealing to you. There were several "street fighter" web sites and forums that might have something you can use.
ie removing sport bike fairings would leave "naked" radiators..

We have talked about this several times but these are the only 2 threads I could pull up.

Wild Hair Accessories was always a little steep (IMHO) but they kept some Gen 1 stuff for a long time after lots of folks liquidated. I could NOT find the radiator covers but I may have missed them.

Just to throw this out it might be worth looking at some of the newer models and see if you think anything can be repurposed to the Gen 1. IDK how much will go into that but it might be worth a look???
