i just got time to put the gyt-r alluminum frame guards on for my wr450. the right side fits great but the left side blocks the all new easy to get to air filter. so now you have to take the frame guard off to get to the air filter.i suppose a little trim and they will be ok.

nice mounting job on the trail tech computer.

just curious but you do know that the wr450 is a DIRT bike not a snowmobile.

frame guards vs air box lid bottom clip.
when i installed mine a few weeks ago , i drilled 1/8
pilot hole in line with the clip and then used a 1 1/2
metal hole saw and cut out a half moon in the frame guard
looks factory and works perfectly for air box lid removal.

I installed the works connection frame guards, they have no problem getting to the air box cover.
Good luck

At Works Connections web site I didn't see a listing for frame guards for the Wr450, did you use the Wr426 guards?

Mine are Works Connection for a YZ450 and they fit my WR perfectly. They clear the air box lid too.
