I know that may be this is a morbid subject but has anyone found a way to fit pucks to their K's in case, you know, they dropped it at speed?

Not quite sure what you mean Chrish, is it something akin to the plastic covered protectors on a Honda ST/pan eoropean?

Not sure what the rest of the world calls them but in Oz they are Oggy Knobs they stick out futher than the fairing and are made of teflon or similar and wear away before the expensive bits like plastic panels. Usually attached to the frame.

That's what I'm talking about. I saw some on a pic that I think was on here about a older gay racing a K100 and the bike was leaned WAAAAY over.

Shoganai designed a set of DIY frame sliders for the K100RS over on ADVrider:

Don't know how well they would work at speed for rider protection but they probably would do an admirable job in a parking lot tipover.

They would be better than the rubber mounted rolling bars that come off and destroy the fairing.

Yep, good for a tip over in the carpark and maybe slow speed, but won't offer too much bike protection at speed.

Crash bobbins
I don't really think they're designed for rider protection, but more for saving engine casings, swing arms and fork legs from grinding away as your pride n joy slides gracefully down the tarmac.

I really was not thinking about rider protection, but I was thinking about that shiny new paint and body work that I put all the effort into.

Looking at shoganai's fairing, he should have made his 'crash bobbins' a bit earlier!

Looking at the distance from bobbin end to engine mount, the force of a weighty k moving at any speed,I think would just rip them out and cause more damage, these thing have to be tight up to something substantial for them to work.
Because of the distance between fairing outer surface and a fixing point substantial enough is so great I can't see them working on an old K series.
