Crash Protection

Hi all

I know this has been asked a few times already but what crash protection will work with the F3?

Could you fit something under the fairing or do you have to go with a larger bung and cut a hole through the fairing? Just wondering what I should do when mine arrives in the near future.

Any advice appreciated!

I definitely want the following on my bike for crash protection:
1. Front axle sliders
2. Rear axle sliders
3. Frame sliders
4. Engine case cover (probably I'll paint them silver to match the engine color)

I hope R&G, GSG, Sato, GB Racing and others come up with these soon!

I'm keeping my eye out for those too. If no one makes them I'll probably CNC cut some kevlar case covers and other bits when I get my bike and am able to start making the designs.

Any news on any crash protection accessories? I have been regularly checking the manufacturer websites, but no one seems to be making anything for the F3.

Does anyone know what kind of frame sliders would fit the F3? Will the 2010 (or later) F4 frame sliders fit?

MV Corse has released some case covers recently: http://www.evolutionbike.it/mvagusta...3/mvcorse.html

Also R&G is working on crash protection: http://www.rg-racing.com/browseBike/...a/F3/2012.aspx (more parts to be added later)

Taking my bike down to R&G tomorrow, they require it in order to finalise the crash protection parts they are developing, I will keep you updated

lol, the crash protection is still much more cheaper than a extra set of fairings

Just back from R&G, bike left for a couple more days for further research to be carried..

Tail tidy and crash bobbins are in the final development. The side crash bobbins will not involve drilling holes in the side fairings, which is good news. Understand that tank side protectors will also be available.
I have seen both pro-types, very impressed by the quality.

Keep an eye on their website as to when the parts will be available
