Can anyone suggest a good set of radiator braces to fit a wr450f. Something durable, but inexpensive.

Also, where is the cheapest place to purchase a replacement radiator. :cry: :cry:

They would be my choice. Brian is a TT member. Great Product. Great Service.

You can watch ebay for a used radiator, or you can send the damaged one to Mylers Radiator Repair. I think it's motorcycleradiatorrepair.com or something like that.

Mylers (http://www.motorcycleradiators.com/) turned:

I see there are a lot of MSR radiator braces on Ebay for a $29.00 buy now price. Are they any good, or junk? :cry:

You need more than a radiator brace. The unabiker's offer full front and side protection. :cry:

Combo of devol (weak on their own) and works connection.
Just tested this last weekend and did the job. I would
also want some bombproof crush resistance which these
only offer half way but so far have concluded this will
be a home experiment and havent found the time yet!!

I honestly can't understand why people rave about the devols.
I bent my radiator many times on a side & front impact
that I bought the works' to beef it up. If you want
to stop branches poking holes in your radiator cooling
fins, Devols are fine, however crush resistance is close to 0
without the addition of another strut a la works connection.

Those B&B equipment guards look hardcore. Front and side protection with built in front fins ....nice. Too bad I already have the works brace and devol combo or I would have just done that set-up.
