over in a rut and bent my radiator all to hell with them on. After that I put on a set Works braces along with the gaurds and it seem to be a lot stronger. I had to do a little bit of modificatoin to get them to fit but it was easy. There is a big market for a heavy duty set up for these. Every Yamaha guy I ride with has bent his radiators and at $275 a side it would be worth spending a few bucks to protect them.

This is a top view of the gussets at the front mounting points. One per bolt area.
Here is a pic of the top. I also had this done to the bottom as well.

I must have some first generation Flatlands because mine have no gussets on them whatsoever. Thanks for the photos.

Is that the bracket that runs behind the radiator that gussets were added to?
Yes. When I had my slow speed tip over in a boulder field (twice on seperate occasions), that area bent along with the other front mounting tabs and the face of the guard had warped.
Mine originally had NO gussets what so ever. I sent tham back after I mentioned that they got crushed, and they added the corner gussets, which weren't enough in my mind.
