I have gone the opposite route, and have a subcage sooo take my 2Ę for just that haha.

Not so much a crash but just falling over or low speed drop. Yes, I agree, the look is cleaner without and makes more sense with the seat cowl installed, unless they would provide protection in a minor mishap, garage topple.

I pulled mine out. Bike looks lot better.

I ALWAYS ride alone, though. If you ride with passenger sometimes, I'd leave them on.

Life's so much better on a bike!

So I have my stunt cage on here, but it doesnít look like the pegs would help. Just trying to give perspective/am curious myself.

I agree -- and I think frame sliders are generally useful only for tip overs. One of the reasons my Speed Triple was totaled was that the frame broke where the slider attached.

Ah I see. On my old KTM supermoto not only did I leave them on, I added bolt on delrin sliders. Got a set of Graves pucks and fabbed up my own mount. Then I proceeded to test them at the kart track. Success, hahah. With the axle sliders and the bar ends, it was like a nice replaceable 3 point sliding system.

Don't know what you had fitted, and how / where on the bike you had them fitted, but there's a lot of crappy "crash protectors" out there on the evils of the internet... I can confirm that with proper protectors, made of the correct material (talking about the actual crash bung), fitted / fixed onto the correct fixing point, the bike will slide (I've experienced it myself). Nice looking / carbon looking crash "protector" bling, fixed to say for example fairing fixing points, will likely snap on impact, or dig into the pavement sending the bike into a nice cartwheel destruction derby...
