I am looking for a decent set of frame guards for my yz450. I havent havent heard a lot of good things about Works Connection so im not even considering them. I did a search and found that people really like both Devol and B&B's guards, but im not sure which one to get.

Let me know what you guys think of them if you have a set from either company.

Devol's didn't fit my old YZ426 well at all and after sales sucked. I'd got with the Lightspeed

I've never had a problem with Devol's. I had them on my 02 crf45, my 06yzf450 and my brother has them on his 426. They fit great, and hold up to everything we've thrown at them.

I noticed the carbon fiber ones tend to get burrs and slivers.:thumbsup:

my devol skid plate fits fine. Not fancy looking but light and functional.

I had a set of Devols on my 02 YZ250F and so did my buddy (same bike). They were really flimsy and bent up easily. I had a crash on my bike and they folded up like paper. I would go with something like the Flatland guards.

Are the carbon ones thick enough to take a good hit? Hate to spend 100 bucks and still damage my frame if I drop it in the rocks.

the carbon fiber works ones are about 1/8 thick, they seem pretty strong to me. i bought them to keep my frame from getting scuffed up, i'm sure that if dropped on a rock that the carbon ones just like the aluminum would not fare real well, unless it wasn't a hard hit.
