Crash Protection

Could anybody recommend where to find some guards or braces to protect the radiators on the XR650R? I'm not finding too much with Google.

Rocky Mountain MC has some Devol radiator guards that look like they would do the job well. Their site is http://www.rockymountainmc.com/contents.asp?SID=0003155081 and the link for the radiator guards is http://www.rockymountainmc.com/wc.dll?wwrmatv~type_name~0003155081~ALUM~ALUMINUM~Devol+Extreme+Radiator+Guards~~~

Santa will be bringing me some of these guards for Christmas!!! :) That is if Mrs. Clause will let him!!!

based on rockett's advice i installed the factory connection guards after i had my radiators straightened by fontana radiator works. they went on easy and don't restrict airflow like some of the other guards.

not sure on the strength since i haven't had a radiator smashing get off yet (knock on wood).

I like the Works Connection guards better than the Devols for this one reason. The stock plastic rad guards absorb more energy from the rocks in your buddy's roost than the Devol guards and the holes in the Devol let more rocks/dirt have a strait shot to the fins. I have a riding buddy and his WR400 rads had a lot of crushed fins from rocks. He complained alot about BRP roost too! :)

Both the Works Connection and the Devol do a great job of protecting the rads, I just prefer the Works...
