Installed the Hepco&Becker engine protection kit

After waiting 3 weeks of waiting my kit arrived today. Installed when I got home and it took a good hour. I like it a little better without but the pro's outweigh the con's.

Very cool! How much weight does it add?

It depends on how tall you are. I am 1 meter 80 and my sliders don't touch the bars so thats good. Plus, that's an extra gopro attachment point 😏. Going to get another one.

Hey Mister, did you find any clearance issue with your feet and the brake/shifter lever as discussed in this thread?

I'm 1875 mm tall and wear boots in the range of 47 - 49 depending on brand (big calf muscles) and shoes size 13.

I have the H&B bars and find there is enough room for gear and brake use and my left shin JUST touches the bar if I sit fwd on the tank.

There is enough room for me.

Those look pretty stout and should add some serious protection.
