Unfortunately i took a bit of spill last week on some gravel on the pavement on a 1000 mile motorcycle trip. My two month old scrambler lowsided less than 15mi on a gravel patch and fell on its left side. The footpeg snapped off and the shifter assembly got a bit tweaked.

Bike is in the shop right now to get some replacement bits but the purpose of this post is to give a huge shout out to Evotech. Not only did their sliders work as intended but they sent me a replacement side for the sliders from the UK to California in 3 days on over the weekend! Huge thumbs up to these guys and their product as they stand behind it 100%! Thanks to these sliders (yeah i know the engine ones stick out quite a bit funny!) my engine case doesn't have a scratch on it and the rear spool slider protected my sprocket and chain to make it back on a 500+ mile ride back home. Now just waiting on the rest of my bike to get sorted so i can back on the saddle and ride again!

Nice to see they do their job. I live near a limestone quarry and I'll bet 15mph on gravel in a turn is exactly how I'm most likely to lowside.

How far from the frame do the engine sliders stick out (inch or cm) and what's the diameter? It's hard to judge from the pictures I've seen.

the front slider plastic is about 70mm long and the rear is 25mm. theres a metal bit used to clear the exhaust but i dont have the bike at the moment to measure that. Here's a pic for an idea of how it looks like:
