Crash Bungs
on: 24 August, 2010, 06:42:45 PM
I am considering fitting crash bungs to the bike. Has anyone any experience of these - are there any particularly good makes, who are the best suppliers, are they easy to fit  etc.
Would welcome any info !

Thanks

Hi Giles,

Try the search button for "crash bungs" or "R&G" etc. and you'll find loads of info, some good, some horrible!  :156:

RK

PS Most important that you search "torque settings" also.  :169:

Hi GilesI I have R&G crash bungs - easy to fit, - and they work  :005:

Just follow the instructions about correct torque. Get direct from R&G as they have good after sales service.

If you have lower fairings (GT) you will have to cut a hole.

Hi, Giles. I fitted the R+Gs. Very glad I did. I have dropped the bike twice since fitting........ A slow speed stall each time..... Must remember to check what gear I'm in after sudden stops...... OOPs..
Meanwhile, if you are fitting R+Gs to a GT model, check this link out for how I went about it without removing the lowers.

Scroll down page for one way of doing it without too much grief.

I too have found R+G excellent for after sales service.

I have also recently fitted R&G crash protectors, and also the R&G bar end protectors...just remember to follow instructions as one of the bolts is longer than the other...also it says MAXIMUM TORQUE 40 Nm so i have done it to 35 Nm. Seems that most bikes I see around have the R&G ones fitted.

Hi Jumbo
Thats the first time I have read that thread. I was quite nervous about the idea of fitting R&G cash bungs ( or indeed any crash bungs) to my GT as I expected to have to remove the lowers on my GT, This seems to be reasonably simple if you have some degree of hand eye co ordination   :037:
Must get sorted to fit them soon before the inevitable silly slow speed drop arrives  :005:

After pricing frame sliders, I went with SW Motech crash bars instead, as they look like they'll provide better protection, and the cost was not much more.  Also, the crash bars provide good mounting options for auxiliary horn and lights.
