Engine guard design

Post by jwheels14 »



I want to get engine guards so I can put highway pegs on. My question is, on ebay I see 3 different designs which one is better. There's one that clamps to the down tubes and is one peice. Another one is two peices and wraps around the valve covers. And the last one goes around the valve covers and is one peice, I think. They are all different prices I just want to hear what you guys think might be the best type.
