Has anyone ordered an aftermarket upper shroud, it looks like to me that they don't come with the internal air scoops like the stock ones do, has anyone ran aftermarket without the scoops?

If your looking for an aftermarket shroud with intake scoops...try Cycra Power Flow shrouds. I don't think a aftermarket shroud is made for the 2010-2012 YZ450F is available without the intake tract or ductwork.

I was curious about if anyone has installed the Cycra Shroud and how the fitement and performance are.

Thanks

I have installed the cycra shrouds and they fit very well. As far as performence I haven´t really felt any night and day difference. They are a little slimmer and in my opinion looks alot better.

Nice looking bike HRC. I was thinking about the Power Flow shrouds just for simplicity of servicing the air filter but another gain would be a slimmer feeling of the shroud area...sweet

Thanks

Was that graphics kit for the stock plastic, if so did you have to modify much

Cycra makes a graphics template for their shrouds. The graphic maker just has to request it from Cycra, from what I understand.

Strange ! Mine fitted almost better than stock. no problems at all actually.

Can you explain where/how it not will fit up ?


One tip is: do not tighten the bolts for the shrouds until all bolts are in place.

Do you have radiatorguards mounted ?

Have your radiators been tweeked in a crash ?

i installed the Works Connection rad braces (simular to yours HRC), then was in the process of installing the shrouds. they didn't want to fit into/around the intake opening. also, they made contact down along the rads, causing them to bulge and keeping the bolt holes from aligning.

Thx



(my bike has 0.2 run hours on the meter, never ridden, never dropped. radiators are like they were when the bike rolled off the assembly line. the suspension is at Factory Connection being valved.)

I live near Cycra and know the guys there pretty well. What I did on my yz is turn the spacers around an install them that way. This seem to help out alot. My bike is actually out there now getting fitted for their new skid plates.

@washel157, if I may request since you know them, could you ask them about doing a yellow retro Powerflow body kit for the 10-12 YZ450F's. I think that it could be quite popular. They do not respond much to e-mails.
