I crashed at the racetrack during the a track day. Penguin Racing School, New Hampshire International Speedway.
I need to replace the radiator and engine case covers on both sides, among other things.
I have been looking on the internet for some good heavy aluminum case covers that will survive a similar crash, but I don't see that any are made for the 919. I wonder if the kevlar cover covers would have helped? I don't think so. They look like they are for show.
Thanks, and I can't complain about the frame sliders.
I took a closer look, and most of the damage was on the left side, the frame slider was bent forward, and the foot peg sheared off. The bike was sliding backwards at the time. It also slid on the right side, and the frame slider did its job there.
If all the slider did was bend i'd say they did a pretty good. No telling how much damage they saved. I've got the sato sliders on mine and wonder how they would have done,from what i hear prolly not to good.
I've been thinking about mounting the sato's where the pic shows those mounted. What do ya guys think?
One more thing. What about a steering dampner fer the 919? Any suggestions?
