To me, the plastic protectors on the 990 or the aftermarket carbon ones are enough.

Crashbars makes it a pain to do maintenance and just bend to shit after few hits.

The tanks take the hit pretty good, they just need wear protection like the plastic or carbon protector.

I was told it was damned near impossible to wear a tank through on a slide. I went for a nice 35mph slide on VERY rough tarmac - ugly but covered up with a new plastic tank lower cover.
