749 Crash Bobbins

I'm in the market for some crash bobbins, I have never bought any before and am slightly dubious even if I should invest with the scre stories of damaging frames etc.
Do any of you use crash bobbins (for track days) and if so which ones?

Cheers.

Speak to nelly at corner speed, he has a cracking set that come with two sets of bungs, one that you drill through your trackday fairing to mount and the other that sits behind the fairing when you have your road kit on, the one behind the fairing will not protect your side panels but it will save damage to your frame etc...

i have a set of r&g on my 749r, easy to fit & do a job.main reason i have them is the tank hits the deck on 749r & the tanks cost is over what i paid for the bungs.

I used to have R&G as well however as they are bracketed directly to the frame and i was warned they could damage it, i swapped to these from Nelly http://secure.speedymoto.com/Merchan...gory_Co de=FS

Here you can see mine behind the road fairing.

I'm interested to see what people think...Redmist on here has a set of the ones that come through the fairing. He drilled holes in his track fairings but not in his standard red fairings.
I had a look at his 749 the other day and thought that this was a pretty good idea. Without the mushrooms the bike looks pretty but you have the piece of mind.
The fitment under the fairing is so big without the plastic mushroom it looked like it will protect the frame and engine if you had a road crash...when he put on his track fairings he screwed on the extension mushroom, therefore protecting the track fairing as well as the frame and engine.

I would be concerned if it was a solid protrusion without the mushroom on that it would be inclined to dig in and flip the bike apposed to only sliding if the mushroom were fitted

The fitment was as rounded as the plastic mushrooms are...I didn't see a problem with it digging in the ground , anyway surely the fairing would give some protection towards that.

I agree the fairing would give some protection, i was unaware that the fitment was rounded in shape, i assumed like most it would be a solid protusion that the mushroom would screw or be bolted into

Same here and for the same reason, along with protecting the clutch if it goes down on the right side.
