Default tip over protection demo slow speed crashes u-turn

There's a difference between the protection you need for a simple, "tip over", vs a skid, vs a crash. I feel if you're doing the cone courses and use just the heater hose your going to end up at some point not just tipping it over at 2 mph but skidding several feet in which case the heater hose just won't hold up. If you don't have a fabrication shop near by I would go with the two part shaft collar but I would order one the same size as the 1-1/4 " engine guard, round the edges so it won't dig into the pavement, then use the thinnest double sided tape between it and the chrome and finally I would drill and pin it from the bottom. For the rear you're stuck with heater hose and hydraulic hose abrasion protection.

If we practice enough we all end up like the picture.

I watched your video Bob, well done. I like it.
I think you did a great job on adding extra protection to protect the bike.
I am definitely interested in doing something like this.

Very inventive mods but I personally don't see the need for them. I practice the cone turns a couple times a year and I have never scraped anything but the back of the floorboard. I live in an area with a lot of twisties and I ride them hard and have never scraped anything on my XR yet.
