I have a 2008 yz450f that I purchased last summer. In April I have a trip planned for the hills of Tennessee and would like to purchase some protection for the bike. I'm wondering if there is any advice on what to get especially the most important? Thanks in advance

What is the terrain like? The first items for off-roading are usually a skid plate, rad braces and hand-guards.

Optional items that are nice to have, in the order I would acquire them: heavy duty tire tubes, brake snake, high pressure rad cap, chain guide, disc guards, rear master cylinder guard.
