Well I dropped myATAS the first week I had it. Stopped in a gravel parking lot after lunch. It broke the hand guard holder and landed on the Honda pannier and left a small scuff in the plastic but other than that it survived. Already have the Barkbuster Storm s ready to install. The guards that came with it did a good job of protecting the tank.

I also have HEED bars. So far so good, but I havenít dropped it yet. The price was right.

I dropped my bike stupidly at a standstill, but thankfully a few days after I installed my Outback Motortek bars. They worked well.
Sorry for your damage OP, I feel your pain

Just wait til ya try and take the original hand guards off. When you do, please let me know how you did it. They are torqued on by the big green Mr.Mean himself....The Hulk.

Presently it’s at the dealership getting the fuel pump replaced. If it’s anywhere near as tight as the oil filter was, it may be challenging. Hopefully next week I’ll be installing my bark busters.

I used a ratchet with a hex bit to get them off, but they are on there pretty good. Not sure I would use an Allen wrench for sure.

First things to do when you drop it:
- hit the kill switch
- assess yourself for damage
- grab your camera and take some pictures
Then get your buddies to help pick up your bike.
Protection is worthwhile before you ride; saved the engine and paint from damage multiple times.
