A must have for any dirt rider.

These are a must have accessory if you are a dirt Rider especially motorcross because you never know when you’re going to rack and the last thing you need is your radiators crapping out in a Moto these things pay them selves off I have already wrecked bent my bars and my levers and broke my plastics but my radiator stayed in place with no damage I highly recommend this to anyone the instructions are kind of vague but StI’ll A fairly easy install it if you are good with tools.they look great too and made in the USA. Great quality works connection always provides.

Radiator brace

These radiator braces fit perfect on my Yamaha wr250f. I have them on my honda 450r for two year now with know problems. What I like about them is they do not interfere with stock plastics.

Dont ride without them

These are always my go to braces for every bike i have owned. They flat out work! Radiators are expensive. These save them and will help keep you from being stranded on the trail. They are very lightweight and durable. Install is fairly easy. You will need to remove the seat and tank.

WC Radiator braces

I just installed these on my RMZ450, and have used them on a few other bikes in the past. They install easily, don't add much weight and look good. On the RMZ I had to drill a small hole in each radiator mounting tab to mount these braces-no big deal. WC makes a quality product and they are made in the USA. They protect from side impacts with the ground if you crash. The only downside to these braces is they offer no frontal protection-If you ride MX so this is of little concern. If you ride offroad/trails you might want another brace with frontal protection.

A: The YZ450FX is very similar to the YX450F. However you have a cooling fan and the radiators may be a different size. I would recommend checking a different brand, MOOSE, DEVOL or GYTR.
