Washed out on a very slow speed right hand turn ( literally just laid the bike down ) would NOT consider it a crash/hard impact of any kind !!
Well The GYTR brace bent like a wire hanger ( basically they are thin stamped alluminum ) !!!
I ran Moose guards on my past 3 Yamahas >>. Flipped, slammed, crashed, rolled down rocky slopes .......you name it , and not a mm of bend ..... a waste of cash and does anyone know of another co making good braces for my 2011 450 ???

I tried works connection and they folded like a taco as well. Although Works Connection did send me a free replacement brace :ride: but they do no fit tusk radiators.

Works connection "CAGES" are the best I have used.......NOT the works connection stamped metal ones.

Unibiker looks Cobby to me.
I dont like the stamped pieces in the front. The Works connection aluminum Rods are much cleaner....In my opinion of course.

I've been happy with these as well. The problem is WC only makes them for a few bikes.
