I put this Pipe Guard on my 2002 KDX 200. Not as bad to install as some say, at lease not for me. It took about an hour to form it to my liking. The material is quite thick. But the way I bent it was to use two 2x4s, 1 1/2 dowel and a dead blow mallet. Lay the guard across the two 2x4s. Use the dowel like a punch and hit it with the mallet. Take your time and keep checking the fit. If you can't understand what I'm saying, you probably have no business on a motorcycle.
