Radiator Guards What is the Best Kind?
Posted August 02, 2004 - 11:48 AM
I hear from time to time about radiators boiling. I ride alot of single track - sometimes slow and technical. Does this have any effect on what brand/model I should buy?
Thanks for the advice!

The Flatlands go all the way around the radiator back to the frame and do not touch the radiator in their normal state :-).

I am dong the final pre-production fitting this afternoon of my WR/YZ426 rad guards.
The 426 guards are very similar to the WR450 guards, with 2 attachment points in front, and one in the rear, sharing a mounting point with the engine bracket. These are a 2 piece guard/brace combination, with a reinforced rear brace that will help eliminate squashed rads, no matter what direction the hit comes from.
Here are some pics. I'll have some on bike pics later this evening.
They will be on sale starting tomorrow for $85.00 + shipping.

Brian is a great guy and makes an awesome product.
I waited for a month before UNABIKER's were available for my bike and they work great. I'm a short guy and if not moving I tend to drop my bike on hills, numerous side impacts on both sides . I also run into trees with my left side radiator mostly and no signs of damage to rad or guards. Only had to modify right side to fit a 3.4gal GYT-R tank.
