Do the BMW engine bars protect the frame the same as the 'hard parts' do?
The Staintune is much louder than stock. Much louder. It's about 6 pounds lighter. Fit was perfect, no adjustments needed, but you need a new exhaust gasket and it's not included in the kit. I used gasket goop in a tube. As for power difference, I'd have to dyno it to find out.
The "hard parts" protect the frame down there near the pegs. The engine bars I think would protect only the engine in a fall and also act as sort of a "brush guard."
