KTM 450 EXC 2007 - easy install

This went together no problems. My only gripe would be the that you have to remove the KTM fan housing and mount the fan to the aluminum guard which stands the fan away from the radiator and no doubt will reduce its cooling efficiency. I've not had issues with over heating so far but haven't been slow riding in hot weather yet. Just something to be aware of. Seems very sturdy, but yet to have a big crash on them!

A good warm weather radiator guard. Allows for maximum air flow. Would help installation to have a 1/2 inch longer upper radiator tube for the YZ.

Ease of Installation 3/5
Bad fitment

Have to drain coolant to install which is a pain, as well as trim a lot off of radiator shrouds (plastics) to get the lower bolt to line up. Even with trimming and using the provided spacer, it still does not line up easily. Not great if you take your shrouds off a lot. Bike was a 2007 wr450

Some Trimming Required - 2007 Yamaha WR 450F

These radiator guards look nice and are quite sturdy. Only slightly noticeable after all of the plastics are reinstalled. Only downside (minor) was having to trim the inside of the radiator shrouds down to get everything to fit back together due to the fact that it makes everything slightly wider than stock without the guards. Ultimately I wish I would have purchased a set of these before the radiators got a bit bent. I'm sure it would have saved them.

Quality radiator protection.

Definitely a solid set of radiator guards with high quality materials that look and feel as though they will offer good protection to the radiators in a crash. Installation was simple and the provided instructions detailed and accurate.
My only problem with the product was that the plastic radiator shrouds are difficult to get bolted back onto the bike after installing the radiator guards due to the distance between the shroud bolt holes and the radiator mounting bracket and the supplied mounting bolt length not being long enough. I overcame the issue with some effort but would expect a product in this price range to have zero fitment issues.
I would give it overall 4 out of 5 stars and would recommend this product.

Good investment!

Easy installation, comes with good instructions (2011 YZ450F). Fit over my "pre-bent" radiators. Good investment !

Great Purchase!!!!

On my 08 CRF 450 I used to go through 5 radiators a year racing. Once I purchased a set of these they never broke again. So now, these are one of the first parts I'm buying for my new 2015 RMZ 450.

PS you don't have to completely remove your radiators to install it just makes it easier.

Solid Guards and Easy Installation

I bought these guards for my 2008 KTM 450 XC-F. Thankfully I did not bend my radiators before I put them on. I took off my shrouds, and removed my gas tank to expose my radiators~pretty easy. Then loosened the bolts that keep the radiators on the frame and the braces were ready to install. With the additional thickness of the guards, my shrouds were tight to reinstall, but they are on without modification with original OEM bolt screws. All in all, installation took 20 minutes and the fit was perfect. These guards provide excellent protection for my radiators and I am 100% satisfied with them. Frankly, I don't know why any woods rider would go without this protection. It beats a long push back to the truck.

Great product but installation problems.

So I have had these guards on two different bikes now over the course of 6 years and even after countless crashes my radiators are in one piece. If they could work out some installation issues I would rate thee 5 stars. The first bike I had was brand new and installing the guards was easier because the radiators had not been bent out of place. However, when you install these the radiators become approximately a half inch further apart from one another. Just far enough to not be able to reuse the upper radiator hose that connects the two together. Not the end of the world but it would have been nice if there was some mention of that in the directions or even better, a longer hose. The only other problem I ran into was when installing them on my used dirt bike. Even after spending an hour tweaking the slightly abused and bent radiators I was never able to secure the lower part of the shrouds and had to settle for zip ties. All in all a great product that has been proven to hold up to some harsh abuse over the years, just can be a pain to install.

It's ok

These where the only set that they made for my bike wish it was more durable and protecting of the radiator in the front and the left side doesn't even fit to good had to find way to make it snug and not loose so I used rubber grommet washers needs to b more sturdy hopefully does it's job of protecting my new radiator cause I ain't sponsored and can't b spending an arm and a leg for it even tho it's a pretty expensive sport! That I love!!!!

Does the job!!

Fits OEM Rads ONLY

I ordered these braces because of the good reviews, and I laid my bike down, bending my radiator. Shipment came and put one side on. Very easy to install. Then when I went to install the other side, the brace did not fit, not knowing the other side was an aftermarket radiator. These braces only fit OEM radiator sizes. EBAY aftermarket radiators are thicker. I recommend these braces if you have OEM rads, and want to protect them.

Only for Stock radiator size

Easy to put on, but I did not know the previous owner had an aftermarket radiator on the left side. The gaurds only fit the oem size radiators. I recommend the gaurds to protect your stock radiator, or just buy ebay aftermarket rads for $80.00.

Careful 2014 ktm 500 exc owners

If you're running a radiator fan these will need to be modified to fit. Why one pair isn't offered fit this model correctly is beyond me.

I just got my radiator guards yesterday and put them on. I haven't wrecked the bike yet, but when I do ill be glad I spent the money on the guards instead of a new radiator.
