crash bungs

can someone please recommend crash bungs for a monster. Will they protect the tank if it gets knocked over in the street?

Thanks

Derek

Kirsty has R&G ones on her monster, Not saying they are used a lot (twice in one day) but they have done the job very well, Not a mark on the bike.

Seconded, R&G are the ones to get. I tried some Motrax DHB ones to begin with and they were rubbish, the mushroom shattered and disappeared immediately on contact with tarmac. The R&Gs on my current DD monster have been down 3 times, all at considerable speed, and the tank is undamaged on the sides. Did their job well and still useable.

Yeah definately the R&G ones, little bit more than the motrax ones, but are worth it.

Well i think not as production are making a set for me and have not done it yet.
