Last Friday I went at the EICMA fair in Milano.

Yamaha did put some radiator "braces" on the new 2007 WR450,
they won't do much if you land hard, but in 2010-15 we might get
somethnig better.

All I see are the same louvers that have always been there. It doesn't look like any bracing was added :cheers:...SC

Look right behind the plastic louvers.

hmm......is the brace that white wire that criss-crosses through there?.......if so, was there problems with the radiatior be bent directly backward? I wouldn't think so. If I bought one, I'd be inclined to take those off.

mmmkay... isn't YZ07 rads smaller than WR07?

Anyone yet seen WR07 skid plate or rad guards by any manufacturer? Anywhere? WC has no WR07 staff yet.

As I put those on any bike before I lay my finger upon it...
