Moto Corse still make a nice titanium piece for MH900e.  I know Randal at Bellissimoto carries their line, and I'm sure others do, too.

I'm pretty sure the guard for HM1100 will work http://www.rg-racing.com/browseType/Radiator_Guards/Ducati/Hypermotard_1100.aspx for a bit less money, but you'll want to verify the dimensions of the cooler, first.

All that said, I've put a couple of hundred thousand miles on various air-cooled Ducatis without guards and have never holed an oil cooler.  The guard does rob a bit of efficiency from the cooler, if you care, but not enough on the MHe to matter.  Several owners of Panigales who've installed radiator guards have had severe problems, though!
