Sturdy, great fit!

Comments On May 13, 2015:Just installed the Works Connection radiator braces on my 250fx. Install went without a hitch, only took about 15 min. Very sturdy now. Did have to file a very small radius on left bracket for slight interference with frame to get front holes to line up. Recommend installing BEFORE bending radiators. Have yet to crash test but looks to be solid. A bit spendy, but nice quality, well designed.

Great product, Great fit, easy install.

Comments On Mar 24, 2015:Great product - hardly noticeable, super light, and gives that extra support you need. Install was very easy, and only required drilling one extra hole in the plastic radiator louver. Works Connection is a great company - I've contacted them separately about other questions/issues, and they stand behind their product and are always willing to help.

Good product

Comments On Feb 24, 2015:Installed these on my 07 X. They're a great product and easy to install. I'm really writing this to address problems I've seen people write when installing these particular style of braces. 1) If your radiator has taken a bad hit (like mine has) prior to installation, and has been tweaked, you will have a rough time installing these. Depending on the severity of the damage, slight to heavy modification will need to be addressed to make these work. 2) The stock louvers, will not attach the outside of the radiator properly as before during install. Slight modification once again can be done to make them work and look clean. I cut the two mounting holes on the outside off to make room/mesh with mounting portion of the bracket, still using the push inserts on the inside side of the louver for mounting to the inside. Then drilled two holes in the center round portion on the outside, routing a zip tie through the holes and around the bracket, holding them securely in place (honestly less flimsy than stock mounting).
Like a lot of people who run these, I noticed significant less flexing of the radiator and plastics with my knee braces on. Overall great product.
For those saying these wont protect from hitting a tree head on or some other sort of accident likewise, you're correct. However don't blame the product, for these are simple BRACES, NOT GUARDS. These will stiffen up the mounting for the radiator and protect it better in a layover better that nothing. Think about why you're buying these and if you need SERIOUS protection, I would look elsewhere, but for the 90% of people looking at these, they'll be fine.

Difficult installation

Comments On Jan 25, 2015:I had to carve most of the bracing material (plastic) out the right shroud, and still had a hard time mounting the right brace. Disappointed.
