It is very nicely made from CNC aluminium, unlike the competitors' engine guards which are generally plastic. It fits the lines of the engine block very nicely and it looks like it is part of the bike. BUT:
1. It is small and only covers the central area of the block (which admittedly gets most of the crud). It does not cover the edges and top of the engine block like the competitors' plastic guards do, so you still get some crud in these areas.
2. The "neoprene" protective sticker for the top of the guard, is pretty naff. Mine came very squished in the package and it never properly recovered its shape.
Great looking protector plate and very easy to fit to my BMW R1250RS, the quality again
5 minute job to install using step by step instructions.
Good quality and easy to fit
