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.

amen bruddah some here don't seem to care a wif about their cock they says, "Don't worry." Well, I know the importance of the little thing (I mean BIG BEAST! ) and when it shears off and takes its mount with it whomever will be one sad unic

this

rocks

if you can't see that, then you might as well sell the bike. but the old KTM Rallye part is better because it come up in front of the cock for protection . Paging Arch to the white courtesy phone!

well here's a pic of the unit!


see how it rises on the left in front of the cock.

whoop! derit is...


and here it is for the low-low price of $700!

Thats the one that is tool boxes on both sides, the skid plate with the water tank (listed, but not shown) has much better protection for your unit. I think they are awesome and if I wasn't so poor I would have one!!
