I was planning on adding radiator braces to my WR450, but after reading a number of posts am now considering adding guards and braces or just guards if they also work to support in side impacts. Looks like Flatland has the best guards, but now I'm trying to decide if I need both. The folks at Flatland say their guard design also acts as a brace since it supports the back of the radiator as well. I'm also concerned about weight as I'm looking to remove weight not add it if at all possible. Any feedback would be much appreciated as I want to order something this week.
