XR400 Frame guards ??

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to find any (at least here in the USA). Acerbis doesn't appear to have any and the only other brand i see is Works Connection but they always list them for an xr250 . I would assume they would fit but I am leery since they don't have them listed as xr250/400 only as xr250 (96-05). Where did you guys who have them purchase them? Do the xr250 works connection ones mount up correctly? Thanks for the help.

Anybody use guards from another bike and found they mount up well? Maybe acerbis's xr600 on the xr400? Anybody do anything outside the box for there guards??

I use this non slip type Intertape to protect the painted frame areas on my CR500R’s and XR630R’s. The adhesive backing is water proof and adheres well to the frame. The non slip tape is tough enough to with stand riding boots rubbing against the frame areas. It protects the frame and paint and it’s cheap to replace when needed. You can also buy the 1 x 12 inch strips at Lowes or Homedepot as well. :smirk:

That non slip tape is an abrasive like sandpaper which will screw up your boots for sure.

I would think, if you can find it, a Teflon type tape like the stuff they put on the fence of a table saw to make it more slippery.

Just my 2 cents

I started off using a plastic tape that is very durable. Never had an issue with that tape till my new mx boots. This tape is used on side panals on cars and you see it alot on jeeps. Unfortunatly my boots were wearing through the tape at spots. I then made my own set out of plastic which works much better but I actually found aluminum frame guards from an england company called ad tek. they look good in the pictures so i placed an order but i have not recieved them yet. I bought a set for the xr and one for my drz400 .( helps to justify the shipping costs from europe getting 2). Thanks for the helpfull replies though.

There's all kinds of degrees of that non slip stuff. From sandpaper like to simply textured a bit. Doens't have to be the chew you up stuff.

They don't show you much [like how they install] if it's two sided tape, forget that, those things are like 75 dollars + shipping and how long does it take to get them. You can get stuff from Japan faster then it takes to get stuff from England. Theres some sort of time warp in the middle of the Atlantic. :smirk:

I tried to order some last night and I couldn't get the site past check out and take pay pal or a credit card .

It comes to about 52 bucks for a set. Its about twenty something to ship. I ordered 2 sets to maximize that shipping charge. (1 set for my drz). I could not find anywhere else to buy them ( thus my post asking for help) which is why i had to order from england. I could not order online either so i had to place a call. If you search the internet you can find some mounted on bikes and they look decent, but i do not know for sure if they are or not. As far as wait time.....whats the alternative?
