Safari 15L/4 gal tanks & Radiator Protection?

I'm figuring the $474 cost isn't too bad if it does 2 jobs. The BP guards are $200 and if buying the tank saves me that coin, buying one may be loosely considered a cost-effective purchase.

Who has tested the crash-worthiness of the Safari 4 gal tank in protecting the rads? Do you feel they work well enough to fore-go the purpose built units?

TIA, y'all!

I can't speak for other bikes and brands, but the KTM 18l tank on my LC4E has saved the radiators twice now. The really ugly high speed endo managed to squish one a little. But it still works and doesn't leak.

Good to know. It is a big chunk of change for a 4 gallon tank but when you look at all the features, it kind of makes more sense.
