Price rise

Hi all,

Unfortunately due to material price increases (mainly due to the weak AUD) I've had to put the price of the Guards up by 10 AUD to 160 AUD per set.

Luckily since the AUD is down against most other currencies the end price to most of you will be the same. If you've already contacted me but I haven't gotten around to your order yet then the original price remains.

Cheers,
Michael

These are the orange kevlar guards. I'll have to grab some better pictures next time I have a decent camera handy

Petcok Protection

Hi All,

I've finally finished the petcock protection, they are separate piece that is glued to the bottom of the tank guard. You can see in the bottom picture that it is still possible to switch to reserve etc with the guard in place.

If you order the Petcock Guard with the Tank Guards I will stick it on there for you. If you've already got a set of Tank Guards it can be purchased separately and you can attach it with the same glue you attached the guards to the tank with.

The price is 22 AUD. Shipping is included with the Tank Guards, if you order it separately shipping will be the same as the Frame Guards, see the first post of this thread.

Cheers,
Michael

Got'em

Some pictures of the guards on my 2003. Courtesy of of Loctite Liquid Nail, as it was what I had at the time.
I'll probably go around the edges with a silicone sealant or other such weather sealant to keep cruid from getting under there.












They're really good guards. I did have to trim the bottom rear area of the left side cover, as the fit wasn't quite right, and also the hole was off a little, so I had to trim the hole a bit on top so the air rushing through the tank hose doesn't grab the guard and rip it off.


Overall a solid product. Consider me pleased.

Thanks for the pics and the feedback!

Based on some other feedback I've had I've made a new set of moulds. The new mould fixes the fitment issue on the left side (the old mould had a slight twist in it) and makes the radiator vent holes a bit more consistent. Below are some pics of the 2nd set of guards I've pulled from the new moulds, they have the optional Petcock Guard attached.

Cheers,
Michael

Any pics of what the frame guards and case savers look like on a bike yet?

They're here!

My tank guards showed up today. I was just going to ask what you guys have been using to glue them on? I want them on permanently, so what's the good stuff for doing that?

And I'm guessing it's a good idea to seal around the edges to keep junk from between the guard and tank.

I used Loctite Liquid Nail, which holds it on quite well, but since mine have a slight warp, I needed something else around the edges. So I used Permatex RTV Adhesive Sealant. Yes, it is a good idea to put that around the edges to keep the crap out. Overall, they look pretty slick on the bike. I've still got duct tape on mine right now to hold the RTV in place until it sets.

Couldn't have been more satisfied with your tank guards, looking forward to adding the petcock guard to them and also your new LC4 case guards!

I will post up pictures soon! Thank you again for bringing some top quality products to the market!

Let me know if you ever do a set of swing arm guards!
