I just bought a 2021 yamaha yxz ss se black and neon green. On my way home after our first little ride the neon green radiator cover on the back flew off on the road and got run over.... any way to find one for sale somewhere or know how to get one, I cant find one anywhere.

Motosport, it is listed as ships in 5-8 days, that means it is on backorder. You will have to call to get a estimated actual ship date. With covid some things keep getting back ordered. I have a rear fender on order for one of my Raptors that has been backordered 3 times already.

You could take some automotive paint polish and probably buff out a lot of the tire marks until then or get a factory storage box, it will cover the whole thing.

I always take mine off when I open trailer. One thing you want to check when installing the cover is that the two tabs in the front where the intake grate is are hooked properly. Its easy to put the cover on and and have tabs hooked.

That sucks!! I actually had mine in for service and on the way home mine blew off and was lost!! I made the dealer replace it since they just worked on it. However it made me nervous that I would do the same thing so I used a cable fishing leader and drilled small holes on the cover and the SxS so if it comes off HOPEFULLY I won’t lose it. I can post pics later if there is interest.

All I used was a cheap carabiner clip, roughly 12” long cable fishing leader and a keychain ring. And as you can see the keychain ring needs replaced because I was an idiot and deformed it while installing it. Hope these help!!

Break out the fiberglass mat and the resin and have at it. You won’t make it any worse off and you might surprise yourself.

That sounds like a good design but I'm probabaly just going to take it off every time I haul it somewhere in a open trailer

I just installed the Yamaha storage box for my 2020 XTR and it looks like it is a tight fit with that back cover maybe it will help with keeping mine from flying off during transient.

Any temp solutions?
The first time mine flew off it was destroyed so I just didn't have a cover on it at all, just open. I didn't do any mud riding or anything like that so I can't say how well nothing would be but it should be just fine to run it without the cover.
It also took about 1 and a half weeks for me to get one off of partzilla and it ended up being their last one. Month later my buddy was driving it on gravel roads and it flew off again and got covered in scratches, looks kinda bad but I'm just keeping it cause the new ones are soo expinsive and now seem to be almost sold out.
