The Moose "shovel," as we call it, provides great protection but not sure if they have made one for the 450 as of yet.

I run the works connection on top of the standard aluminum bottom plate for double the puncture protection. Extreme but I crash and bash the bike up all the time. I am on my second set of shrouds, headlight cover, front fender ignition switch and bark busters! I run Devol rad guards with Works connection rad braces as well. Up to 1,247. miles on this bike and it has held up fantastically for the abuse. :)

Don't buy until you've looked at Their skid plate is incredible for protection and looks. A little pricey, but well worth it.

I have the Works Connection guards. Get the side guards too, they don't add a lot of weight but keep big rocks away from engine cases.

Anyone have any luck with guards from Carbon Fiber Works? How do they compare with those from E-Line? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. :)

I like the White Brothers, if they even have them for the WR450 yet.

Get the E-LINE Skid Plate, It is incredible. Kevin Hines Owns the company and he is pretty cool. The frame and fork guards are great too.
