Can I use engine case guards with SW motech crash bars?

I was checking out these very nice case guards on ebay and would love to use them with the sw motech crash bar.

I'm not sure if you already have the SWs on or not. If not, clearance is about 1/2" on the left side case on my '09, and around 1 1/2 on the right.

I am putting the SW stuff on, because the skidplate and crashbars work together....I think the case guards work!

May I ask "why" you feel the need for anything more than the crash bar and skid plate? I'm not dogging you, just trying to see if there is an exposed area I'm not realizing.

Might be because I had posted that, in a 20 mph low-side I had (H-B guards), I got a small pavement "rash" on the lowest part of the left-side engine case, about 1/4" x 2"W, which I didn't notice for quite some time.

I'm a little anal Annie....I'm thinking if i drop my bike on dirt, a rock could pop a hole on my case. There were cool case guards on eBay but I doubt they will work. Then there re another set that almost look like the cases. I may have to try them..
