Please advise where you can get these and how much they are... They would definitely strengthen the crash bars significantly!

Pauli at Gps4Africa ..... GSing on this form.

The price I cannot recall ..... Approx R2k ??

Thanks gents.
 Makes one wonder why the insurance companies don't give preferential premiums on bikes fitted with maximum protection! On the other hand they probably know that the guys who pay good money to fit these things do so because they often push the limits.
Ok, looks like I will have to get some then!

These bikes are heavy enough to put MORE scaffolding pipes and protectors on!

Ry net die blerrie ding, if you want to blow more dough then get a quick shifter and Akcro pipe. Then you're buying something that enhance yiur riding experience rather than protecting when you moer down

It is like ATGATT ..... you spend money on things that you hope you never use ..... :eek7: :eek7:

I agree , you should not add unnecessary bling , ......but I have seen too much trips that ended because of a "small" spill and a rock pierces the Cylinder head , or a rock damaging an exhaust header.
