Hey triple "S" Have you seen the factory accessory's for the (UK) 07,/Hornet 900.
They have an Engine Guard (bobbin/frame slider) that is like the L.O.S./Motovation pieces.
It is a Frame mount style with durable nylon bodies on aluminum shafts with shock-absorbing rubber liners. It says it protects the engine cases, fuel tank and other externals from damage in the event of a fall.
Part # 08P53 MCZ 800A.
I wonder how it relates to warranty claim possibilities.?
Interesting, I love my LOS pieces, wouldn't trade em for anything. http://www.honda.co.uk/mcstatic/en/product/accessoriesPDF/2006Range/CB900F%20Hornet.pdf
