    The minimum I personally run on my bikes is frame sliders and case savers. The Woodcraft stuff we co-developed works...don't ask me how I know.

    Axle sliders are nice, too. But not as critical as the frame and engine.

    http://www.stoltecmoto.com/shop/yama...frame-sliders/

    We've had luck with OES sliders, as well. The woodcraft stuff really stands out because of the strength of their design. The slider has a machined aluminum base that is torqued to the stock specs. It's solid. If only bends if you really whack it. In fact, the last off I had at Summit Point didn't damage the lowside base. It took a flip upon hitting the grass (and landing on an asphalt pad) to SLIGHTLY deform the base. But the plastic aluminum slider is cheaply/easily replaceable, even damaged. The radial mounting bolt doesn't get boogered up after the bike does it's asphalt surfing...

    The engine protectors use the same thinking...replaceable pucks. And they work.

    On most bikes, the frame sliders do a great job (if they're designed correctly) to save the frame (duh) and radiator. Tank and plastic damage protection is a perk. But the engine usually provides some of the support while sliding.

    Lots of options, but we clearly have our pick. That said, any good protection is a solid investment. Despite the factory cast aluminum side covers being inexpensive, one broken cover ends a road trip or track weekend in a hurry. To me, that's the best reason to have the protection.

    Well, I've posted all over the place on this subject, I bought the "cheap" Chinese case savers off Ebay, forget those cause they bind on the screws before the screws are torqued properly. Then decided to go with the Woodcraft frame and axle sliders. They are a high quality item, as Nick says the axle sliders prob are more "nice" than essential, but at least they are there. (The cotton reels I have stick out further than the rear axle sliders) - For those in Aus, Stoltec charge actual cost, so don't get put off by the auto quoted postage, it's a good price and great investment. And,.. if anyone here wants to try/modify the Chinese ones PM me and they are yours, - wouldn't feel comfortable onselling them on Ebay. Made a decision to take the risk on the case covers cause my insurance covers a pickup in the event of an accident.

    Priceless footage or slippy footage... good all grand...

    A bit tech info ref on bike tip overs:

    If the bike had have been switched on or running at the time of tipping over then the tilt switch triggers ECU log; which shuts off fuel pump in event of up the road crash, and a tip would been log recorded in the ECU; a tip over plus any other logged faults can trigger an Engine Managaement Light, if there are other minor faults recorded like stalls or TPS faults etc are logged too.

    The Tilt Tip Switch resets itself on lifting up of the bike.

    All Should be fine but if an engine check light comes on then a simple dealer reset should sort that; thumbs up.
