Deals, looking for deals!

Things I need:
#1. Send radiator off to Myler's.
#2. Radiator shrouds. Anybody know where the deal is?
#3. Rear caliper guard. Busted the plastic one, would not mind billet. Ideas?
#4. Shark fin.
I ride a '98 WR400.
Any good leads would be appreciated!

Rode with a bra on my bike all weekend, and there are pictures to prove it.
I just can't show them to you......
All serious now! ProMotoBillet does not serve my older bike, so is it EnduroEngineering? GTY-R? Who else is out there that may protect my steed?
Hope Myler's can fix this. Unbelievable that I did not walk home...

Laying on the side of the trail was a cut tree, cut end exposed to me, with a diameter of maybe 2.5 to 3 feet. My radiator hit that full on (I am guessing 30 mph or so) then the bike glanced off, and the frame took the rest of the impact. If my foot had been on the peg, it would have been compound-fracture city.
I lucked out, for sure.
Hot start should have been ripped right off...

I have all of your needed items, would send them to you free, but a little peeved that you over paid me for the YZ can. What goes around comes around.

Sold Brandon a YZF can. The deal was for him to pay shipping, that was $9.61. He sent me $10.00. He overpaid by 39 cents. I'm getting even now, Paybacks are a bitch.

Thats a wicked ugly crash! (that one was for Kevin In NH)
Glad to hear your alright! Hate to see the bike wadded up like that though. Consider Flatlands guards next time. Much beefier. Not that anything would have save your radiator in that crash ...

I'm glad you didn't get hurt. With damage like that to your frame and radiator it's obvious that if it would of been your leg or boot that took the hit, even the cape wouldn't of saved you.

toyota mdt tech: Not positive, and WR400Rock can help me out here (he used to be blessed with this bike, now I am ) but I am pretty sure that it is a Moose skidplate. It has taken quite a beating.
BlueThumder- I pm'ed ya!
I hope my luck don't run out any time soon. Dealing with these consequences would have stunk!
