I noticed recently that I crushed my right radiator sideways & will need a better brace & guard for the bike when I get the new radiator. I see some only work with stock tank, so I'm wondering if anyone has them with the desert tank?

Flatlands or Unibiker are the ONLY one's I would run.

Flatlands help, but are not the best. The enduro engineering ones are the beefiest things out there and they are only 100 bucks. That's what I run now.

Get the chinese radiator from ebay. They are also more sturdier than stock (and a lot cheaper). the Enduro Engineering guards are the only ones that will fit the chinese guards. Its a great combination.

I have the Flatlands on my 450 with a Clarke tank and they have been great. If I were to do it again this would be my first choice http://www.mohardrac.../radguards.html

When you say Desert tank, do you mean the 6+ gallon desert tank? I've used Flatlands on mine, but agree that they aren't the strongest, but good none the less.

Devol guards can't be beat. They are very strong and they prevent sticks from going through your expensive radiator. Try them, you will not be disappointed.

You can't get a better gaurd than what Bullet Proof Designs offer! They will fit with every aftermarket tank that I have tried and are Indestructable.
