    Haha! No worries Ken. That did suck though.

    The first time I laid oil on the track was at CMP. Lowside in T1 and ground through the casing, dumping oil. Ever since then, I run case guards.

    I didn't have any kind of protection on my pristine Tuono until now....I dropped it doing 10mph and scuffed it to the tune of $1000. After replacing all the damaged parts I ordered the frame and axle sliders from Woodcraft. They aren't pretty, very industrial looking BUT the quality is awesome, parts are available everywhere, reasonably priced and from what I read on the internet very durable and crash worthy. They are engineered for racing and the axle sliders don't need removal for wheel removal. I'm a changed man....function before fashion....
    Next thing on the list will be exhaust pipe and belly pan protection. Those Factory belly pans are very hard to come by.
    Got the solution to the world's problems, but... no one wants to f@#$ing listen.
