    Engine Cover Protection

    I've bought some shaped metal plates to bung on my engine covers for protection.

    I have to admit I've not used this type before, I'm assuming I just 'stick' them on with silicone sealant or should I be using something else

    Cheers

    What are you hoping to achieve?

    Not puncturing a case?

    I would sooner not fit them and carry some JB weld, for the day a case 'may' get punctured, however if you have a decent alloy bashplate and handguards, then the likelihood is much diminished

    Mostly protecting the cases from my boots, they are already starting to get scuffed to f**k....... but also puncture wounds from levers to an extent (I know they can never be 100% effective). I've got a very good bash plate fitted that offers great protection from hitting shit.

    It's a dirt bike

    Shit happens

    It's called character and patina

    I doubt Carlqvist, Mikkola, Aberg cared, back in the day

    If I was on a factory bike and not on a 'keeper' paid by my own hard earned I wouldn't care either

    Horses for courses, some people put protection on their bike to prevent damage others simply take them off the road in case they get dirty in autumn winter and spring
