Hey Top,

I started with Devols. After a bike fall over incident on the trailer the devols bent causing a leak in my Rad. Since then I have run the Flatland Racing. Much better quality and stronger. Survived many a crash trust me :cry: Highly recommend them :cry:

I use Flatland Radiator Guards on my 99 YZ400 and Devol's on my 02 YZ426. Recently I have started traing a young man on the 400 and he has bent the Left Side Flatland guard 3 times with very minor falls..... I have had several big time get offs on the 426 and the Devol's have never bent like the Flatlands....

I just ordered a set of Devols Yesterday for the 400 as replacements.

In my opinion, these can't be beat. Well, actually, they can, and I do beat on them most every ride I take! :cry: But, as they say, "they take a lickin...".

Rooster Performance products are designed to be tougher, better looking, and easier to mount than any of the others.

For the WR450, they retail $75.00.

But, for the 400, you won't like my answer.

We don't make em... (Yet) :cry:

Being a relatively new company, obviously we are concentrating on the newest bikes first, and working our way into the others. Of course, with the '05's just hitting the street, we have some work to do on those! :cry:

I think I have found the ticket.... A set of Ty-Davis Radiator Braces (New) and the Devol Radiator guards should take care of that pesky Flatland gusrd problem I have.

I agree Yamakaze. I run braces attached to the rad guards to box in the protection for the radiators. Best set up going! :cry:

You are describing my WR rad guards.
Well, except you would have to spend about $125.00 on braces ($50) and guards($75), from 2 different companies that may or may not have designed them to work to gether.
Unabiker gives ya both for a lot less $$$.

That what I have been saying except it does not work with oversize tanks. I had to mod my two sets to work together. Unabiker has the best off road guard/brace combo units for a stock bike. :cry:
