Ive seen a number of accessories being sold in the market namely engine guards, rectifier guards, oil cooler guards etc. Do you guys have those on your bikes now? Are they absolutely worth it?

I do have a belly pan and oil cooler guar but it came with the bike when I got it. Is it really worth the investment?

Post some pics guys

In reality, most if not all, additional modifications to the OEM scrambler is more for personal preference (peace of my me) than functionality. The stock bike runs pretty well even in some abusive conditions. You can YouTube some guys thrashing the bike harder than many ever would.

Insurance, Scrambler oil cooler, clutch cover and Dyno cover are not cheap, let alone inconvenient if one happens to, " fall over "
I think protection is better than replacement.
I guess it depends upon whether one thinks one might fall over or not. ???

I've got the Evotech oil cooler guard and engine skid plate. I also have SW Motech engine crash guards. I have both front and rear axle sliders. As well as Givi panniers.. All in hopes I never have to use them (except the panniers which I use very often). But firstly because I wanted my Red Icon to fit her name.. Mad Max.

I think the oil cooler guard is a good idea as the cooler is easily dinged by flying stones, especially if you are following another rider and I have known of them (on other models) to be holed.
I wouldn't waste my money on a rectifier cover though. It's just a big lump of finned metal that a brick could bounce off and do minimal damage.

I agree with Derek, the other thing about the rectifier is it needs to be kept coolish, thats why it's in the air flow, go covering it up and it could overheat,

Same deal with the oil cooler. In Australia I'll take all the cooling I can get, so don't want to impede airflow across the cooler.

For what I consider the optimal all round protection I'm going to try the Hepco & Becker engine guard.

It could do with something to protect that lambda sensor which I've always considered to be in a vulnerable position. I don't understand why Ducati didn't locate it at the back of the pipe where it would be tucked away more out of site and less susceptible to damage.

Best protection... remove the sensor :)
