Crank Case guard for 919?

Leafing through one of the rags the other day, I came accross an article about the new CB1000 and the guy put on a Rizoma crank case slider/guard. I thought it looked way cool, so I scoured the net looking for one for my 919.



Did Rizoma ever make one for the 919? Anyone one else make one?

Not planning on laying it down, but I'm just coming off ACL reconstruction surgury and I could just see myself getting caught at one of those off camber stop sign intersections and all of the sudden finding way too much weight on that leg. You got the picture.

I have Givi crash bars on mine, I'm not sure if they still make them. Check Twisted throttle, they carried Givi and SW Motech.

Edit: no more Givi, they have SW Motech:

Yeah, I found them yesterday, but they are not as cool as the Rizoma's!

Don't we have the same case as the old fireblades? Shouldn't guards made for race bikes fit 919 crank cases?

I smell another casting/machining project for AllanB...

Ha ha - had that idea already in a similar design to the Yoshi ones. Waiting for cool months when I retreat into my mancave and start playing!

Any update on this? I am interested in getting the SW-Motech or Givi case guards.

A slight derailment... but I've been weighing between guards and frame sliders. Are there any clearance issues with the guards when getting low enough to scrape the feelers/pegs?

Givi bars can be found new on Ebay...there is a seller in Canuckistan who sells them, and they can be found in England still, as well. They are very much worth the cost!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

I found a seller that had the givi guards on their site. If all goes well I should have a set soon.
