Which crash protectors do you have?

I know this has been debated many times, but I would like your opinion in this particular one from GSG. There are a few thing on it I don't like.

1. Don't you think is too short?
2. Will that metal base be a weapon to the chasis in stead of protecting it?

If you know of a better one I would like to know.

Thank you.

I have LSL and it's a matter of opinion on what you like or don't like! If your going to crash you want to have the least amount of damage? So if they are ugly and work, "GREAT" If they are beutiful and work, "GREAT"! We won't know until we see the aftermath. I have pics of my LSL's in my album, which are being powder coated to match frame.

Switched from LSL to these, as they are a 2 bolt system:

I would go with the ones fazer6 has. I had a set of the larger, single bolt type. Could be very VERY dangerous!! Costing me $3,000 to get my Brute fixed. Not sure if it was a design flaw or a bad day with the wrenches for me but it wasn't pretty. I followed the install instructions and torque they suggested. Went to recheck torque after some riding and some dyno work and the right side bolt wound up piercing the cylinder head. $3000 and about 2 1/5 months the bike has been waiting for the part. Not necessarily saying the product was at fault, maybe it was maybe it was me, maybe a little of both. Just be careful. Based on my experience, fazer6's or something like what Ferracci offers might be a better bet.

DemonBike, who's kit did you have a problem with? There's a few makers mentioned in this thread. Was the mounting bolt some how longer on one side than the other? Is it possible that it was some casting anomaly in the cylinder head paticular to you MV that caused the problem?

I have the FBF ti sliders. They look awsome and are very low profile. Ferracci says they use them on their race bikes and work well.

Thats them. If you like them, grab them. Once they are out of stock you may have to wait 6 months for the next batch to be made.
