True - there is also going to be differences in quality with any product and I also think that the cheapest may not necessarily be the worst or the most expensive the best - My point is more that crash bungs, given the nature of their job, aren't infallible!

Does anyone have GSGs? Am asking cos they seem to be one of the very few for the 675 without cutting the fairing.

Motosliders are the ones to have, the R&G's are not up to the job even when you use a corrected shape bung (hence why R&G have not changed the current design). No slider will completely protect your bike, obviously, but for the price that motosliders are (inc UK delivery) and the damage protection they offer they simply are the best buy!

Just interested if anyone has fitted/tested these before........Sorry to hijack a bit but it might be of interest to you

Dave - no question of R&Gs, I'd have to drill a 28mm hole in the fairing. No thanks.

Got a link for Motosliders?

GSG are German. The site is in German too and UK distributor BikeJohnny is expensive - it would be cheaper to import from the USA. The sliders bolt onto the engine, the pix on the site look good.

I found these which don't require cutting the fairing:

110 though is a little on the expensive side for bungs, but if they work, then I wouldn't complain!

The others I was going to look at (other than GSG) are Sky king:

General consensus on what I have read though is that GSG are the better design
