I'm not saying I think they are the best, but they seem pretty sturdy to me.
Shame they don't offer frontal impact protection (ie. from sticks and rocks and stuff flying at them). At least they allow you to use the original plastic protectors if you're looking to retain the "stock" look.
Mind you; the left side plastic protector on my bike needs some filing with a round file to get it to sit perfectly in place.
Anyway, for reference here's a few shots of them fitted to the bike:
As you can see from the shot below; I've done a little filing to get the white plastic radiator guard to sit down in it's original alignment, I still need to file a bit more ..... when I get around to it!
Strangely the left side sat perfectly!

I love my Unabikers... pain in the *** to install, but absolutely bulletproof!
There's the difference, these were dead easy to fit. A little minor filing, that's all.
One thing that worries me with a lot of other brands of guards is the risk of air flow restriction/overheating.
They say that airflow isn't restricted, but hey, anyone can see that it is indeed restricted on a lot of them.
ie. 40% or more of the surface area is covered in.
Horses for courses I guess.
You buy what suits you best!
I reckon if someone had offered me a pair of new Unabikers guards for almost half price I would have bought them instead.
As it happened these GYTR ones came up and I grabbed them.

I'll post a pic here when I've finished them (providing they look ok! If they look crap I'll pretend I forgot about it!! HA! )

unabikers nice, install a pain
agreed, i screwed up the install... had to take some pics and do it again
thanks to this site, everyone sorted me out thanks
they are better at blocking stuff than the stock guards shield do from debris as well
thankfully i have not had the pleasure of knowing how strong they:thumbsup:

First time out I hit a pool cue size stick pointing up from the ground that would have pierced the rad. Unibiker damaged. Saved $300...
Front washed out on an angled wet log crossing, twisted the right rad pretty bad back up against the tank (07WR450). Two months later with the tank removed I held onto the handle bars and pushing with my foot I twisted the entire rad and Unibiker back into nearly normal position. That means that the Unibiker guard had the entire radiator so protected that the rad/guard assembly acted as one unit. No leaks!
That's not crap! You can break anything!
