Sump Guard/Crash Bars
I've got an Aprilia Pegaso i'm planning on riding from Sydney - London. It comes fitted with a plastic sump guard, which I'm guessing is completely useless.
Not that I've managed to find one, but how important do you think it is to find myself an alloy sump guard? If I fit the crash bars, do you think I can get away without changing the sump guard? The bikes not really designed for proper off road stuff, so guessing i'm not going to be riding on anything too serious, although thinking/hoping there may be some.
Aprilia make a carbon fibre one, but from my experience of sailing and carbon fibre masts, it can snap/shatter - do you think the same would be true of this? Its bloody expensive too!!
Any advice much appreciated!!
