But then again maybe not; you are further along than any other 640a monkey.

The petcock protection might be a 'pie in the sky' if you know the phrase; some have discussed using an aluminum reinforcement loop to allow for non-stop switching. But the best petcock protection is likely the rallye skidplate boxes.
bah... creeper isn't that bad... only half as bad as me for example.

you callin me a monkey? i have had a set of carbon/kevlar tank guards for 2 years! also had a set of the jap ones in my hands, then onto an 05 belonging to a friend.

the ones i made have no petcock protection. i felt the protection was not worth the pain when switching to reserve at 75mph on the interstate. with the jap ones it's impossible. with mine it is easy, and i've never dropped below 65mph while running outa gas on the freeway. (lets not discuss my problem with running outa gas on a bike with 24 litres).

here's the jap ones on kellys bike:
