Had a lowside in June at about 25mph. I had sliders (like you have) on the bike. They never touched the ground (I expect because I had my Givi E41's on the bike). In any event, I did over $3,000 damage to the bike. I now have taken them off and put on SW-Motech engine guards (crash bars). I also put a skid plate on bike among other farkles.My newly purchased 2006 Wee has crash protectors installed. Do I need to buy engine guards or not? Thanks guys!
I like the skid plate on your bike. Who makes it?The engine guard, I think, would protect the tank and fairing, etc., as well in case of a dirt nap, not just the engine.
....and we have bad knees, so need road pegs. (mounted to the crash bars):thumbup:Yeah, all the old farts who work on their own bikes need crash bars. They make great grab rails when you're trying to get off the ground. :biggrinjester:
Not if ya drill a hole big enough for the 14mm deep well under the drain plug and don't mind a few drips when your done....10 minute oil and filter...Quick lube?Skid plate is Adventure Motostuff from Happy Trails with the highway pegs/bar from the same place. Easy to mount. Only downside so far is you have to loosen the front bolts and remove the rear ones to do an oil change.
