Lower frame protector

I found this plate that covers part of the lower frame from boot scratches. I only found it from a seller in Italy though... anyone else seen this?

As far as I know, the Gen 1 Stroms came with a rubber guard that fit snugly in the swing arm hole on the frame.

Those look purty, but I presume they'll get scratched just as quickly as the powder-coated frame.

My K6 Wee did not come with the rubber swing arm bolt hole covers. But I did order them. I think they might have started as a standard item in 2007, but that's a guess based on parts house info.


Like badjuju, I would think those would scratch too.

I have those shiney frame protectors & yes, they do scratch but in a nice, uniform manner. I thought they were too shiney when new but they’ve scuffed into a nice matte finish somewhat similar to the guard on the master cylinder

My 2007 ABS Wee came with the rubber guards. One is in the ditch along highway 3 in Washington State, the other one is somewhere along highway US 2, same state. You are welcome to them if you can find them.

I kinda like those. How about a link? I googled them a few different ways and came up with every type of crash bar possible, but not those

Humm. I don't have that scratch guard, nor do I have scratches on the frame there. I must be doing something wrong.

I found them on Ebay under: Frame Protectors for the DL650 2004-2018 and DL1000 2002-2013

I haven't been able to find the rubber ones for a 2006 wee.

I made my own, fixed on with silicone... the gaping holes each side just bothered me - I could have used pipe/tube plugs, but where's the fun in that?
