    R&G Engine Case Sliders

    Anyone fitted these?

    I had a low speed, no-injury, (pride-damaging) tip-over on some early season gravel, and while my DPM engine guards did their job and the bike escaped pretty much unscathed, the geometry of the system still allowed the base of the crankcase cover to get lightly grazed. I'd like to close the barn door before the horse leaves again...

    Any alternatives to the R&G?

    I put those on my 2018 after I was sideswiped. I chose them based on the damage the right-hand-side suffered.

    I've not tested their effectiveness, thankfully, but they seem very well made and look like they protect the right area.

    I bought these R&G aero crash protectors for my bike.

    Unfortunately when they arrived I promptly decided not to fit them. They're larger and more obtrusive than I'd expected - they're big black things that stick out a long way. I've no doubt they work very well, but I'm after something sleeker.

    So far, my solution has been to avoid dropping the bike..

    good luck, Gromit.

    you might want to consider the DPM guards. they are very expensive, but aesthetic, superbly made, and a much stronger system, as they attach to two bolt points. Unfortunately, you'll have to cut threads into the rear hole too.

    here's a report:

    thanks BigOne and panagiotis. we'll see if anyone else pipes up, but I reckon I gotta go for 'suspenders and a belt'...

    I take it they are not too obtrusive? ( a bit hard to tell from photos...)

    I think they are about 12mm thick? Half an inch? I'll go look and get a picture shortly. Definitely not obtrusive.

    My bad. They are about double the thickness that I thought. But that just proves my point about them being unobtrusive.
