Thanks for the reply. Are they long enough to protect the fairing or is it just for frame protection? Do you have a picture?

I have seen a bike go down with the short version and they don't protect the fairing.

I second that. After a gentle low side at about 60mph on the track, my GB case protector wore all the way through. Replaced with Woodcraft, hopefully will never test it out.

To expand on this, I have the woodcraft long sliders and fairings were still damaged. They didn't hit the ground, but the space is so small that all the dust/dirt/cinders that fly up from off the side of the pavement did damage. Other sliders are probably the same.

Also, I think the Sato Carbon case covers would have the best protection. They completely cover the cases, and if you notice, they also have replaceable puck where the case would impact the pavement. The others listed seem to have one of these protection options or the other, not both.

I am not sure what you mean. With woodcraft case guards installed the rest of the stock engine case cover cannot contact the ground. If it did then your bike most likely hit the ground so hard that it is completely destroyed anyways.

If you are looking at carbon fiber or Rizoma case covers then honestly you aren't too concerned about legitimate protection but more so how good your bike looks which is totally fine. Either option is still more protection then nothing at all.

The first statement. He means it covers the whole case from any damage. Yes the lowest point will impact and slide on the road. But other stuff can scratch the case still. So a complete covering is often better than just one that protects point of impact.

Agree with the second statement. I have GB. Which cover nearly all of it.

Anyone else have these? Ebay and Amazon both sell them. If they do more damage than good, I'll pass, don't mind spending extra $$ for something better but I really like the Red Color 🙂

Never mind, I'll stick with GB. After reading all the post on Case Covers - I'll stick with Quality. Same reason I wear a Shoei Helmet and Alpinestars Perforated Leather Jacket and gear when riding around town.
