    Did you have engine bars? I would have thought with them the can would not go down?

    Yes, lower Wunderlich bars. The bike fell and although the bars extend beyond the line of the end can, 'tipped' and therefore marked it.

    Had a full top box, en-route to France, so that weight was the reason for the 'tip'.

    Head guards, as they stop the crash bars touching the heads if they bend.

    The crash bas don’t guarantee that the cam box lids won’t take a hit!

    You could add a pair of machine art cyl head protectors if you want to sure

    I can reccomend a pair of stabilisers ,

    That way your never going to fall off.

    Halfords do them reasonably cheap.

    Failing that just live with it
