Engine Guards

Okay I apologize if its a dumb question in advance but curious on what's truly necessary and what others on the forum are using...

So two recent posts on bikes going down and the horror pictures has me thinking....
Don't have engine guards on my bike, but apparently need 'em. Don't know much about 'em but saw different dicussions on sliders versus "engine covers/cases/guards"...

My question to the experts on this forum:
What's the full set up that I need to buy to protect my bike if I go down?
I jumped on motovation and looked under "protection" and saw....
Frame Sliders
Bar Sliders
Stator Sliders
Axle Sliders
Fork Sliders
....looking thru a few threads saw some discussion on other engine guards that wrap on the case in carbon fiber and other types mentioned that aren't necessarily visually appealing (not sliders).

Can someone give me the full run down on what I need to adequately protect under normal conditions? Do I need these covers that wrap the engine, sliders, or need a combination of both? Looked but didn't see a comprehensive thread on the topic that gives me a good roadmap to start buying. Suggestions on brand also helpful.

Right now I have bar ends and engine sliders, will get frame sliders as well in the near future.

Sato make some engine sliders dunno much about them , some feed back from somebody using them would be good.
The RHS is the major one, damages the crankcase pretty good if they just fall over onto that side while stationary. the LHS is not as bad the pin wheel cover is easily replaced unless it grabs a bolt & tears it out of the c'case

I can tell you point blank that the case guard saved a TON of damage to my brutale. I had ZERO damage to anything behind a small scrape on the kickstand. and this on the tank ([plus bar end / hose pipe/ mirror/ clutch lever.

my engine guards were made in japan by moto corse japan. Those are reflections under the finger nail sized scratch to the right of my finger, not scratches.

you can see the right hand case guard here, just above the bellypan. I took out the left side and becasue of no exhauset there, the bellypan only took a nic.

Squid: Obviously you've tested 'em and they worked. I like the look.
What brand and where'd you purchase them, if you don't mind me asking?

Appreciate the pics!

These are nice but on the right side you really need to cover the rubber crankshaft seal. Look at my pics. My bike went down and when that seal gets so much as a nick in it, you gotta split the cases. I wonder if having the alloy ones in place would keep the seal out of trouble though? I have always wondered how effective the CF really is in a fall? A lot of those right side covers don't even come with the Kevlar impregnated CF like the Shift Tech stuff. THis is a big deal to me cause a low speed fall cost me about 4gs and thats on the CHEAP
