B&B bash plate - armour plating for the bottom of your bike, no problems with using it to lift the bike. I used it as i was mostly concerned about ploughing into obstacles when riding two up, this bash plate will take big impacts.
As a bonus the B&B bash plate is also comapatable with my HB center stand and Scorpion exhaust.
I have used the newest incarnation of Suzuki's genuine crash bars as they appear to have addressed the vibration issues that others have commented on, i personally like the appearance, found them easy to install, quality of finish is as good as it gets and they feel as solid as the other brands that are available.
Good luck, there are too many options out there. Buy to quality not price.
