Utah sport cylce lists a skid plate and Unabiker is currently working on rad guards for the 06 450. I wont put any other skid plate or rad guards on my bike, so that is all I know.

Works connection isn't listing one yet but hey neither is anyone else and I have seen some others out there in pictures.
Pearson has a slick looking carbon fiber unit on the bottom of his YZF (E-line?) in todays cycle news story, along with what I assume would be the IMS tank.

I emailed Works Connection the first of January and here is the response I got...

"We're on that project (MX style glide plate) for the YZ450F and should have
it available in about 4-6 weeks. "

Its important that you check who is listing part numbers and who actually is making them. I work at a dealership and ordered some rad guards for my 06 from DeVol because they listed part numbers and so I assumed this meant that they were in production but once the order went through it turns out they are "back ordered" until the first of Feb. So be careful before you place an order to a company that lists the numbers. Always call and check to make sure they are in stock and ready to ship. :thumbsup:

Yeah, they are awesome for Off-Roading, but not so good for MX I would guess. I wouldnt run anything else. I have the Utah Sport on my WR, it kicks ass.

Hey fellers,
I just saw the post saying the 250 & 450 has the same rads this year.
As soon as I can verify this on a bike, it's on.
I should have solid info Monday afternoon.
