Washed out on a very slow speed right hand turn ( literally just laid the bike down ) would NOT consider it a crash/hard impact of any kind !! Well The GYTR brace bent like a wire hanger ( basically they are thin stamped alluminum ) !!! I ran Moose guards on my past 3 Yamahas >>. Flipped, slammed, crashed, rolled down rocky slopes .......you name it , and not a mm of bend ..... a waste of cash and does anyone know of another co making good braces for my 2011 450 ???
