Fuel tank crash protectors

My Brutale will see some track action and in addition to the usual crash protectors, I'd like to protect the exposed edges of the tank.

I've done a few searches but no luck so far, anyone know if such a thing is available?

I mean something like:

Your fuel tank is plastic, easy and cheap to repair or even replace mate. I would worry a whole lot more about the engine and frame. That's just from my experience.

If someone lends me a tank or bike for a few hours we can make a mould and make a set in Carbon fibre.
We are just about to do a set for our two race F3's. These will be available very soon on the UK Race Support website.

Interesting, whereabouts are you?

And what do you think the cost will be - approximately?

Agreed but I prefer to minimise the damage as much as possible on the smaller off's - although I have managed to crack one frame and destroy 2 rear wheels so far in some larger offs

Have a look at your MV mate, the frame and engine is the first to go, even in the smallest crashes, you don't have to believe me. Both sides of your motor has the most delicate little oil channels that get's damaged very quickly. The frame is the first to hit the ground after that.

Oh sure I know what you mean - in track mode it'll covered with every productive crash protector out there - frame, engine, forks, swingarm, bar ends and folding levers.
