Piece o' cake.... no prob with the radiator. Just down push on the drill so hard that you shove the bit through and into the core :banghead:

No problem for drilling, radiator is like butter, but first create an invite (with a tool) before drilling so the drilling have a starting point.

Got it together. Hd to redrill one hole and back it up with a washer! My left radiator was bent already and I didnt get it in the right spot before I drilled the first time...

The biggest problem is they look way to shiny, gotta get em dirty asap!

Note: After the petcock relocation it is a PITA to get the tank off... The only option is to SLOWLY remove the petcock with an 8mm wrench.

Normally not a big deal, a pain when trying to re-jet the bike and look at the spark plug!

WC braces have worked great. I have only one fall where any damage would have been done, but they held up fine.

Gregghealy I ride elsinore all the time. I have the Corona graphix on my RMZ450 #793. I' ll keep an eye out for you. Enjoy the new product.

hiya,i use the guards,one thing i found was a rub starting on the tank just above the fuel tap,i pad it with a bit of rubber everytime i check the valves[it chews thru the rubber bit,but it takes awhile].As for removing the tank i use a longer tank to tap fuel line with a hose over that to stop chaffing on the head,now i can get my hand under to take the tube off the tap .hope it helps,urs desertthumper
