Brian went ahead and sent me the rad guards he had made for the 250F's and they went on my 450f like a dream. Man, he has really beefed these things up, even better than my WR unabikers. I got the black ones and they look bad ass on my SE. I would highly recommend these to any of you guys looking for a super stout, nice looking rad guard. I will try to get some pics tomorrow, pm me with email if you would like to see them. BnB

Thanks for the info BnB, can't wait for the pics. I think I'm going to go with the WC units, but it's always nice to know about all the options.

I sent emails out to those of you that send me your addresses. If you want pics just send me your addy. If you can post the pics on this post that would be cool too. Thanks BnB. I am going to try to get an account to post up some pics.

Brian has been making the units stronger over the years. My WR units I put on a few months ago to replace the old trashed out units are really superior!
Unabiker is making about 4,000 rad guards a year! Great product and fantastic service! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :bonk:

Unabiker makes great stuff and they really do protect the radiaotrs. Have you checked prices on Yamaha radiators. I trashed one on a WR and almost started crying when I heard the price.

I have heard the 06 YZ450 has small radiators and might run hot with guards on.

WC stuff is crap compared to Unabiker in my not-so-humble opinion.

Those Uni's look really good on the YZ!

The Unibikers certainly look nice and stout. My only concern is there use for MX. The airflow has to be restricted due to the grating and any restriction in my opinion can't be a good thing. I personally would like to maintain the existing louvers. Can the grating be cut out on the Unibikers and the existing louvers still be used? If so I'll be purchasing 3 sets. My sons KTM has stout guards that are marketed by KTM and manufactured in Europe they look very similar in design to the Unibiker only no grating and they maintain the existing louvers. There constructed of 1/8 aluminum with the rod stiffeners and do they work well as I'm sure the Unibikers do in preventing radiator colapse.

i have the unabikers on my 05 yz,i cut about 3/8" off the backside of the louvres(every fin,top to bottom) then ziptied them in front. still clears the fender and the fins line up perfectly with the air slots in the gaurds :thumbsup:

i'm computer illiterate but i'll try to splain better; grind off(i used a dremel) the vertical part of the louvres that stick back towards the rad all the way to the horizontal cross braces of the louvre. basically cutting the backside off. then zip tie it to the gaurd(if you don't use the backside braces you can still bolt the outside of the louvres to the rad and just zip the inside). not only does this keep the mud out,it directs the air perfectly through the slots of the unabiker;almost like it was designed that way......brian?
