Flashback to 2014: Looking for ultimate protection for our long term Honda CRF250L, we couldn’t go past these bomb-proof engine case protectors from R&G
Wanting some protection of our new CRF250L’s motor we found these incredible engine case protectors from R&G.
These covers are moulded using 4mm polypropylene and fit over the cases using existing engine case bolt points (longer bolts are supplied). They’re a doddle to fit (only very slight hassle being the need to remove the brake lever on the RHS), fit snug and look good. I’ve heard the engine cases on the CRF250L don’t take rocky crash-landings so well (what engine case does?) so these seem like excellent protection – and as R&G’s case protectors having been tested in the cauldron of the GSX-R Cup we can assume they’ll do just fine here.
Later…. And they worked. Never tested in a flat-out fall down they nonetheless were there for when we rode rocky sections, and when we returned the CRF to Honda after the test, they left no marks on the cases. All was good. And just for piece of mind they’re worth having.
