Have you seen these?

They're Works Connections frame guards and are available for the 06 steel frame. I'm thinking I need a set too.

Mountain Max, I have those Works Connections ones on my 06; paint was wearing through as well so sanded the rust off, cleared it, then installed the guards (Christmas present from my wife, is that awesome or what?); they are a breeze to install and protect the lower part of the frame anyway...

PS I think you and I are in the same boat- bikes and sleds baby!

I don't have the part numbers but I bought mine online from parkeryamaha.com. Do a search for frame guards. Click on Yamaha and scroll down to your bike. 05' will fit on the 06'

Check out the Devol frame guards. They provide a lot more coverage than the Works Connection guards. I have them on my 2005 WR and I have no complaints. :applause:
