Works Connection frame guards for 2009 WR450f - where can i get them?

9 posts in this topic

after doing a bunch of searching here and on the web, i can't find these for sale for my bike anywhere (including direct from WC).

Does anyone know where i can get them? I want to get the complete set (i.e. frame, rear master cylinder, rear caliper, and radiator). if they are not available any more, does anyone have another recommendation for a high quality aluminum substitute?

TIA

Listen... you DO NOT want to find the works connection radiator guards. I guess the rest of the stuff is OK. But the works connection radiator guards will do absolutely nothing to protect your radiators. Look at Flatland or Devol for that.

I only use Flatlands to protect the radiators I replaced that were previously protected with the Works Connectionones. Understand????

so, i guess what you are trying to say is you are a big fan of WC? :ride:

frankly, i'm not sold on the radiator protectors yet either way. between those two, the flatlands look a little stronger to me.

thanks for the advice

If you call/email the TT Shop, they most likely can find them since Tucker Rocky /Part Unlimited is a distributor. I've had them hunt down parts that are not listed in the catalog before.

being a n00b here, i was under the impression that TT shop was just a store front for someone else. i did send them an email already as they don't open until 9AM PST.

thanks for the suggestion

well $h!t....:lol:

just got an email from WC saying they don't frigging make them anymore for the WR's, that SUCKS!! :ride:

anyone else have an opinion on what a high quality aluminum plan b might be? i already have emails into Devol & Flatlands asking for their availability and pricing.

p.s. does it make sense to mix and match between the 3, or should i get them all from one place?

am I that obvious? I like works connection , but just not the radiator guards.

Regarding whether or not radiator guards are needed... I had the WC guards on and I had to send the radiator out for repair twice. But the third time, I had to replace them. If you damage your radiators and you are 20 miles from your truck, you are screwed.
