TT Style Case Shields for WR450?
Posted June 25, 2010 - 11:02 AM
I let a friend take my WR out in some technical trails last week and it took a little damage to the Crank Case cover (part#1). Without being dropped I now have a slow "weeping" drip from right about where the identifier line is on #1.
I know there were no drops because I was behind him, but I do know we rubbed and banged some stuff while bulldogging though the high rocks. On my DRZ I have TT Case Shields and thye do VERY well, but I cannot seem to find anyone who make them for the WR.
Right now I have the bike drained of oil and I am waiting on a new billet case cover, but would like to get a shield to protect it even more.
Anybody know who makes some? Thanks!

I run Aussie B&B bashplates on my WR's, but I doubt they sell these in USA. GYTR got some if you want genuine yamaha, or you could try works connection.
Here's the one on my 450:

Heaps of people make 'bash plates', you might be better off with one of those if you like riding in rocks.
I wish it were that easy bro, I have a larger bash plate than yours; I cannot find any that will protect far enough back.

I am hoping it does not come that but I now have another option!

This is the one I made for my 450 a couple of years ago.
I used 5mm thick plate, which, in retrospect, is too heavy.
I'd use 3.5 or 4mm plate if I had my time over again.
I did pretty much exactly what mutu says, except I cut and bent all the plate at home. The shop simply welded it all together for me.
