I looked at the pro riders and wondered how they were able to run the lightspeed and cycra oversized disc covers for the 270mm oversized aftermarket rotors. The only option you had was to buy the Acerbis Oversized Rotor kit that used the front wheel spacer for a mounting bracket. I DID NOT want to mount my rotor cover this way. The problem is that the mid-axle area on the 2014 YZ450F was hollow. There was nothing to screw into. The 2014 models had a 22mm diameter front axles with a hollow center.
I kept watching the pro Yamaha riders and noticed that they were using the front axle (not the wheel spacer) for a mounting point of their lightspeed or cycra rotor covers. So, I'll tell you guys and gals what I finally did.
I went to a hardware store and bought a 3/8 x 6 1/2 inch long bolt along with 2 flat washers. I also bought a locking nut for the bolt along with a small rubber piece that fits on the end of the bolt to protect the threads. You just put the bolt though on the right side and advance it until the threads come out on the left side. Then you put a flat washer on. Now you slide your oversized Cycra or Lightspeed oversized rotor protector on over the exposed bolt. Now you place your 2nd flat washer on over the extended bolt. Lastly, you put on your locking nut and line up the other screw that will be mounted into the lower left fork tube. Once you start to tighten the locking nut you will have to insert a screwdriver into the right side of the inner axle to keep the bolt from turning as you begin to tighten the locking nut. Once you have it snug then you snug up the bolt that holds the rotor protector in place at the left fork tube. Now tighten everything up securely. Lastly, you can put on the rubber piece that protects your threads. (This piece is like the piece of rubber that you put on swing sets so kids don't get hurt on the exposed threads. TaDa...you did it. It fits so PERFECT that you didn't even have to cut any excess bolt off. You mounted a 270mm oversized rotor by running a bolt through the inner axle, not screwing it into the middle of the axle on the left side (which is impossible to do anyways) I got all my parts from Rural King for about $3.00.

works great on my crf450r with a 280mm front rotor. This is the only product that works with that size of rotor. No complaints.
These fit great but the color white does not match white acerbis fork guards. i Have only had them on for 1 ride so i dont know how durable they are.
This fits the CRF450X even though is says that it is for the R models only. Fit perfect and look great.
