Hey Guys

I'm in Asia. Having problems getting frame protectors for my '05 WR450F. Looking for plastic or reasonably priced alum. CF too expensive for me.

Are there any other way to do side frames? Rubber paint, etc?

Any suggestions?

The Acerbis Catalogue at Chong Aik does not show plastic guards for '05 WR. Will older model guards fit the '05WR?

Grip tape is far cheaper...

As Birdie426 said, grip tape is far cheaper. I go to a skateboard shop and get skateboard grip tape. At the place I go to, I find it is cheaper than actual grip tape from the motorcycle catalogues and works great. I also tried to get some 3M grip tape (for stairs) from an industrial supply store and it was more expansive than the skateboard tape.
