    I just installed the "Cloud Rider" grill insert to stop rocks and bugs etc.. from flying into my rad ('08 DC) but the front emblam is still wide open.

    Does anyone have suggestions on how to install something similar for the front emblem?

    Maybe there's a replacement emblem that could be installed to stop rock and bugs from going through to the rad?

    Postin' a picture would be helpful to some.
    I for one, am unfamiliar with the grill you have.

    put a small piece of aluminum window screen behind the grill. then when the screen is covered in bugs, hose it off.

    You could go custom like I did.
    I got a Relentless R from Eric and made a backing plate to mount it on.
