Crash protection

Ok so we all know how expensive parts are for these bikes. Im thinking so crash protection might be a wise idea for more aggressive riding.

Id love to avoid insurance in the case of a lowside.

Im thinking axle sliders, frame slider, swing arm protector, tank guard.

Hell i even contemplated after market Chinese fairings. That is overkill i know.

Do a forum search for tank sliders....I posted a set there along with the contact info for the guy that makes them.

They're kevlar sandwiched between CF. Probably the best tank sliders out there.

I would have reposted the info, but i don't have it in front of me.

cheers

its not the best for lowsided protection. You'll need front axle sliders, rear sliders, the offset through the bike and some tank sliders to protect against the points on the tank. . That assumes you don't hit the tank hard enough to dent it even with the tank protection. That assumes you have enough to prevent touching the majority of the panels . So anything beyond 30mph, you run the risk of the impact doing fairly extensive damage anyhow. . Not sure its worth it unless you have multiple drops in the driveway, etc.

Best low side protection would be axle sliders, bar end sliders, frame sliders and tank sliders. I think R&G makes the strongest stuff out there, it's what I have only bike.

I know nothing is full proof. Bike flips its toast.

Something to help in a minor crash is really what Im looking for. I will check out the R&G stuff now. Thanks!!

Fugly as can be but the T. Rex frame sliders have been put to the test by me, from high speed low side to stopped tip overs, and never touched the tank, and worse damage yet was a end broken of clutch lever
