skid plates and radiator guards

headbanger,
I have a 00 KDX 200 with Works Connection skid plate and frame guards. The skid plate is really nice. It's aluminum and really heavy duty. As for the radiator, I have not yet gotten guards for them, but will be doing so before too long. I will probably buy the Devol brand radiator guards.
I hope this helps. Just my .02

Does the moose skid plate wrap around and protect the water pump ? I thought the works conection one I ordered did but when I got it, it doesn't :(

I still installed it though and am happy with fit, finish, weight etc.

Devol radiator guards are a must. Been on two rides where folks stuck tree limbs through thier radiators. Not a pretty site and kind makes for a bad day.

Some folks whine that they cause over heating. Ive never seen this and nearly everyone I ride with has them or something simmliar. (Especially the earlier mentioned victims). :p

I had Devol on my RMX. Radiator, skid plate and frame gaurds were all of high quality.
I just put Flatlander radiator gaurds on my Gas Gas. They are as good or beter then the Devols.:)
