Acerbis or Polisport I find are the best. If I had to choose between the two, I'd go Polisport.

OEM works fine too. I replaced all of mine cheaper than going with aftermarket. It still looks beat up sooner, but I like spending my dollars on performance rather than appearance...SC

I just installed the Acerbis and it fit real well. I had to slide my clutch lever just a fuzz to the right 'cuz I didn't want to have to hack the ball ends off the lever. They look nice.

Used to be way more expensive in Aust than aftermarket. Now OEM about the same price as aftermarket here. I would still go aftermarket.

Are Polisport a good fit and do they look like the OEM? I got a price for a Polisport rear guard and side covers and got quoted $38 for guard with no tail light (YZ?), $70 for one with tail light (WR), $70 for the side covers. I don't think you can get the side covers seperately. Seemed like good prices to me but I haven't got OEM prices yet. Pretty sure they will be more than this.

Polisport looks exactly the same as OEM, except they use better plastic that stays nicer for longer. Seems harder to scratch too.
