640 Cock protection

For some reason I only seem to crash on the left side of my bike. I am worried that knock my Petcock off or damage it in some way and leave me stranded.

Does anyone make something to protect the PC?

These will get you up to speed on the current thoughts.

And there is a $600 bash plate/ toolbox from Sommer that does a pretty god job too.

I think it is very important to use protection for your cock while riding.
