Yep, appears to me that it offers more protection for those expensive clutch/oil pump, and alternator rotor covers if it were to ever go for a slide.
Having to call for a lift cause all the oil had run out would also be a pain.
Might give a little protection for the headers too.
Woo they will do the job.How much to your door ? Would certainly save the pipes and my High Exhaust looks like it will fit to .Going to get the bars and decent footpegs at same time.Put the rear shock ,an M Shock on .Took all of 15mins.;-0,What bashplate did you go with?.Was going to make one like i usually do .
Yeh thinking same .Even go as far as little toolbox at front tho motor aircooled.Built them for DRS with 2 litres water container at front Even come up side a little ?Will try and order bars this weekend .Beauty of mounting all on one is easy to remove .
On a "flat surface", the three points of contact for either side are, the protection bars, handle bar end, and rear foot peg bracket.
My exhaust is inside the line of the rear foot peg, but different exhausts with the fatter mufflers might contact before the foot peg.
From memory, the Termi was in fact wider than that line and would have contacted before the peg.
If tilted forward, against the balance of weight, the front axle ends contact, which are easy to protect using appropriate plugs
.(Black poly plugs from the local hardware store are the best and cheapest)
On my set up the foot brake clears and the gear lever just comes into the same plain as the three point contact on the left side.
Main thing is that the engine side covers are completely protected and far from a " flat surface " contact.
