    crash protection

    Hi All

    I am a fairly new owner of a 2020 Z9, and new member here, I am looking for advice on crash protection for the bike, I am considering any form of protection for the bike from steel engine guards to sliders. Must be based in EU as extra tax and unneccessary complications may arise !  TIA

    I have the SW-Motech crash bars on my 2019.  Pretty sure they are EU based, or at least have EU distributors.  The crash bars did a good job protecting the bike during a lowside and I'm pleased with the fit and finish.

    Iíve got some generic engine case covers, IMO the engine cases are vulnerable in a slide down the road.

    If you want EU based, try Motea. Hereís some engine sliders, but also have a look for case covers and axle sliders. Also, donít forget a radiator guard, replacement radiators arenít cheap (speaking from experience)!!!
