Stupid question, These act like the engine bar protectors correct?

Was I the only one? I thought it strange the instructions identified the size but kit didn't include it.

I am working on the aftermarket back rest from China. So for I have about 2 hours marking and cutting to size the side brackets. I hope to have something that looks much cleaner and may look like a factory install.

Photos to come but not yet.
My kit had all the parts I needed. Nothing missing, nothing extra.

They work just fine. My son already tested them out... They will protect the main body of the bike but handlebars & mirrors could still suffer damage, depending on how the bike falls.

For the rear, I got some protectors from R&G

As said somewhere else before :

I live in germany ! So if anyone need help in getting parts from here, I could help/assist/translate, etc.

We be glad, if I could help. You never know, if I need help in getting parts from the us or cdn.


BTW :
I will be in Daytona during the bike week in march from 10th till 19th this year. And also for three weeks in Florida (Miami, Melbourne, Destin(2 weeks over the 4th of July) and Clearwater Beach) in july 2017.
