I bought these for a 2012 Kawasaki kx250f. The price is a little steep. The quality is great. The left side did not fit well. I had to do a little modifying to get it to fit. For the price, it should have been a perfect fit.

- Sold in pairs.
Excellent fit and looks great!
I bought these for my 2010 crf 450 the left side fit good, but the brake side don't fit at all. The top sticks out a half an inch from the frame just enough to snag on your pants, would not recommend if you have a 09'- 12' Honda..
I installed these on my 06 YZ450F. After seeing where my boot was scuffing the CF guards hard, I realized they are protecting my frame from such damage, so I would recommend them based off of that alone.
BUT!!!! When I removed them to remove my sub frame, they are putting this nasty wear mark on my frame. I was really upset that I never thought of this happening. My recommendation is if you are interested, maybe find a way to put a rubber grommet behind it or some sort of padding that won't wear on your aluminum frame.
My first pair was purchased 4 years ago and they just started to wear through. The fit was perfect for my 2007 KX450F. They always looked great and offered good protection. Never thought twice about replacing them with the same product.
Looks good but finsih is wearing off sooner than I expected. I like the product but feel it is too expensive for the protection, thats why I only gave it 3 stars. Not sure I would do it again but works as advertised. Installed on 2010 KX450
Easy to mount, fit well, and look great on my DRZ400sm. Put a little vinyl tape under them so they won't wear through the frame paint as fast. They cover the master cylinder providing at least as much protection as the stock aluminum ones. Will have to wait and see how they hold up to wear.
Easy to install and look great. Unlike metal guards, they will wear-out, but they look so much better!
These look great on any dirt bike but make the unfinished looking frame of a YZ250 looks SO much better! Also great protection for the rear brakes master cylinder which can be important in technical enduro conditions.
I bought these for my 2011 450 and was very unhappy with the product. I had them on for only half a season and the scratched the veal out of my frame.....and yea they were tight. The gaurds them self scratched very easy. I wish I could return them and get my 90 bucks back.
Product looks good and time will tell how it holds up to wear. Does not offer quit the coverage I was hoping for but still protects the frame and rear brake master cylinder well enough.
It seems to save the paint on the frame.
Good product but in all honesty how much protection does the strongest part of your frame need? If anything this product offers an aesthetic upgrade and if you need more justifying than that it protects your rear brake caliper. I dig it
Fit like a glove. 2008Crf450r.
I have a 09 kx250f and they fit perfectly right out of package...i was skeptical at first to buy these because of some reviews saying u need to shave them to make them fit...but there was no need and they look great!
i have a 09kx250f...and i was sceptical at first to buy these because of the reviews saying u need to shave some of the guard to make it fit right on one side but...the ones i got fit nice and snug..nothing was needed to make it fit better! and it looks great!
Nice product. Fits good. Fades over time and the light speed stickers wear off fast if that matters.
My second set in 3 years, they will wear our after 2 seasons, but I did purchase another set.
BTW, they will transfer black to white boots
3rd set of these I have owned on diffrent machines-excellent product and super great looks.
These things work much better than the stock ones. The stock guards would spin on the frame. These do not move and are lighter and stronger.
