R&G Crash Protectors
« on: October 14, 2011, 07:20:09 PM »
Saw a pair on a Crossrunner in a dealers today - looked good.
See www.rg-racing.com where full info an price are shown.
I have always fitted these and they have paid for themselves once or twice when bike dropped at very slow speed. And they come in black or white. :062:

Some pics just for Shaunomercy - aka shuanopatience  :008:
The mounting sleeve between the bung and frame come in shiny unpainted steel which stood out a bit raw so I have just taped them over with some black tape before fitting

Not sure why it had repeated my post joe.  Anyways.  Looks smart.  My only worry with the crashbungs are they look to be touching the fairing.   Is this the case ? I suppose in a straight drop or low speed off they will do the job tho.  May have to invest in a pair....  I like the motech crash bars but more weight and its not an off road bike... :008:

I know what you mean about closeness to fairing Paul. -They don't actually touch but they are so close that you worry that if you do drop the bike - it will just bend the bungs back up into the fairing and do some damage.
Same could be said about similar risk on a lot of other bikes I suppose - for example I fitted R&G's to last bike and they sat very neatly in a gap in the fairing but adajacent to some fans etc - see pics below.However when I dropped the bike on a mountain road at virtually nil speed earlier this year they did a brill job and I sustained no damage apart from a minor scratch to bottom of fairing. Also the bung stopped the bike falling onto and breaking the front brake lever which would have been a real problem 1,000 miles from home and proably is more of a concern.
2 mates also had similar issues on that trip (one rolled of side stand and the other forgot he was on a side slope and put his right foot down onto thin air) and we all got away with it due to bungs being fitted.
I appreciate the theory that with bungs fitted in that if you drop it at speed they could rip half the engine out  - but R@G are at pains to state that the fixing bolts in their bungs are designed to bend and avoid this in event of drop at speed (ie sliding along on the bungs and maybe catching something). I work on basis that  for higher speed drop  = can I walk away OK - never mind the bike damage.
