I've been looking at those and the frame covers too. I'll be interested in knowing how they work out nice

The clutch cover works a charm. Stuck mine on with some silicone and taped it in position so it didn't slide down. Very little weight and a lot of piece-of-mind.
The seller so btw is a super nice dude, sterling service - forgot his name, sorry.

No way that's megga expensive....I have the CRD on mine which I love just didn't know someone else was still making them....BB Aluminium used to make them in Australia...?.
Burp thanks for the heads up on the cover, I will use 3M double sided tape as silicon can be a bit difficult to remove if needed.

3M d/s tape??
1) will come loose, 2) you'll loose it, 3) does nothing impact-speading-wise hence defies the object of putting it on. But, be your own guest Mauser, it's your bike Cool

I have those frameguards from Oz, and they still make them. Those "Italiano"-guards look identical and probably are same, just sold at an absolutely staggeringly-high markup. Contact those Ozzis (find yer own link, they make skidplates/bashplates/sumpprotectors as well), they were not too dear if I remember well.

Impact ?, when will my bike get impact riding down lovely English country tarmac lanes Bump I don't even ride on wet roads now too fussy I know but that's old age for ya lol.
Will ponder your thoughts on tape but I use silicon all day and its a bugger to remove lol.

Scottish Highlands & Cairns, Irish peetbogs with embedded rocky lurkers, deteriorating drystrone walling succumbing to gravity, stone-hewn old roadmarkings in berms, and modern-day vibro-conrete curbs spring to mind - got knuckleheads too maybe?

Your casing is thin magnesium Mauser (I know you know that?), easily punched through when hitting unwanted unplanned debris.... and Murphy also looks after you, it'll happen the furthest distance possible from help on that odd-one looooooooong ride, that same day the cellular networks fell over.
Shite happens, and this is what I have it for. And no, I can't think of a reason to ever want it off again.

But, but..... there IS a very easy way to get it off once stuck with caulking, that is if you can think of a reason of need.
Know what a cheese-cutter looks like?
Two handles with inbetween a thin piano wire.
It'll slice off in no time, clean & cut!

No Frosty....I am more than happy with knoblies.....it makes me ride dead slow down the lanes and to me sticking road tyres on a dirt bike is taboo listen up
I have a road bike for road speed stuff.....lol


Weather going warmer so hopefully all the white stuff will be gone..... banana

I think you need to spend less time cleaning and polishing and more time riding , asking for it

Here you go guys a few more snaps of the new cover....not fitted just double sided tape for the piccies....














Not sure yet if it will be fitted, not 100% sure if I like it or not... Bananatool ignore the little gap between the cover and the clutch cover as the sticky pad I used was a bit too thick...bit like me !!!

so watch this space it may be up for grabs listen up

Colour is natural aluminium which has been either brushed or some other finish to remove the natural sheet finish...no hint of gold anywhere it's exactly as shown.
Quality is good, pretty thick and no sharp edges
The bash plate is made by Ricochet...another ebay item £67 I think.... Bump

Anodize it, any colour you like?
Red fades quickest, blue seems to last well, and gold should do too.
Not costly, quick, and the surface becomes a bit harder hence should last longer with those clumsy boots by the looks of things Smile Smile Smile

Just don't fancy it Burp....kinda think it's too much cover for a small area affected if that makes sense ?.
As mentioned it was only brought to see what it was like in the flesh...am I not allowed to change my mind Bananatool
