KLX 450 08 frame guards and some other power parts

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have been looking for some tuning/power parts for my 08 KLX 450R, and have come across these, Works Connection frame Guards:

http://www.chaparral-racing.com/Product/works-connection-frame-guard/WC15-005.aspx?year=2008&make=KAWASAKI&model=KLX 450R

I haven't seen these frame guards anywhere else, they aren't even listed on official Works Connection site.

Does anyone have these on their KLX450R, or is this a mistake from the seller?

I already have WRP engine guard, WRP radiator guards and Acerbis rally pro handguards. I'm looking for, as above mentioned, frame guards, rear disc guard, rear caliper guards, rear master cylinder guard and front brake guard.

I have found these as higest performance/price:

rear disc guard:

rear master cylinder guard:

front brake guard:

- http://www.cheapcycleparts.com/products/85265-acerbis-2042571043-body-plastics-acerbis-spider-evolution-front-disc-covers-black-green?find=H1

Does anyone use any of these guards? Any comments, recomendations, good/bad experiencens?

If i were looking for a rear disc guard...i would go with the TMDesigns guard...it will do a good job of protecting the disc but if it suffers a catastrophic blow it will flex and allow the $80 disc to bend rather than not flex and break the very expensive carrier mounts! They also make a slick caliper guard and its all done in a very sano Kawi green color!:thumbsup:

Just my .02

I had ordered HYDE RACING Frame Guards & other items. Hyde shipped them today & sent the Frame Guards at NO COST because I have to trim the right side a bit, due to it making contact with the shock resovior. That's a $70 savings & GREAT SERVICE. THANK YOU HYDE RACING. YOUR STUFF IS AWESOME & TUFF.

If i put on Lightspeed frame guards on, can I still put rear master cylinder guard on? Do the frame guards also protect the rear master cylinder?

As I look at the pictures, it seems that there is not enough space for both of them and you have to decide either you will have one or another?

What material does Hyde use for their guards? Is it as fragile as carbon or is it tougher, more durable?

@KLX450-DIRK: I have looked at T.M. Design rear disc guard, does anyone know, what material it is made of, so that it flexes and bends at impacts???

It also seems a bit expensive to me - compared to Devol or Topar disc guard, regardless that these two don't bend.

Hyde is made from a Thick, Durable & Light Weight Plastic.

The TMdesigns unit is made of the same "space-age polimers" that they make their world famous slide and guide kits out of. i don't really know what it is made of...a molded nylon or plastic...strong but flexes under massive impact that would destroy your mounts.

The light speed frame guards actually have an integrated reservoir cover, the reservoir bolts are what hold the guard in place.
