Home made crash pads.
Versys panel crash pads.
My Versys slid down the road at over 30mph and suffered amazingly little damage. The 2 plastic panels, see photo, were scratched and deeply scored in a very small area.
I have repaired and filled the panels and I am now ready to paint them.
BUT. How about if I fix 2 plastic shaped flat-sheets over the 2 areas that were scratched instead of painting. Therefore if the bike goes down again it will wear out the pads and not the panels. Where they go flat sheet is fine, there is only a one dimension curve.
Question is. what material and how to fix it to the faring panels since depending on the material gluing may not work strongly enough.
Years ago I had a Honda CBR1000F which had 2 crash-pads on each side built in to the fairing. I regret to say I tested them and they worked, so the idea's good.
Any ideas and suggestions guys?
