Customer Reviews for Gilles Crash Protectors - Honda VFR800 Fi / V-TEC

May 3, 2013

Nicely Engineered and Simply to Fit

These are both attractive and unobtrusive. I chose them because they didn't need any holes cutting in the fairing. The bolts are quite short and connect to the frame so it's difficult to say if the protectors would survive a long scrape. Instructions are poor but unnecessary.
