Why not put a larger bash plate on that will do the same thing and less likely to catch your ankle in a crash because a bash plate sits lower than the crash bars.I have the genuine Honda fairing/ tank crash bar fitted. Are there any lower engine protection bars that will fit happily with them? All the makes I've seen seem to use the same mounting points!
I think the RR plate will stick out the side far enough to protect the side covers from a drop, the crashes so far have shown the B&B ones do the job of case protection even in a big get off.I'm waiting to order a bash plate from Rugged Roads. I'm more worried about damaging the engine cases on rocks if I drop it when trail riding, not so much sliding down the road.
Keep the opinions coming - good and bad. One of the main principles of a forum is to get peoples' views be they positive or negative. We can't learn much if we merely go looking for affirmation bias.My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too. Rodney Dangerfield
I guess, 34 years on motorbikes of all sorts does entitle me to have an opinion on one or two things, but opinions may be ignored, so they shouldn't do much harm

Yikes! :surprise:and you are right. Not my bike. Someone in Morroco.
Engine damage by rocks. Defintively the accessories of Honda are not enough.
