Givi sump guard
« on: November 04, 2014, 02:01:01 PM »
Anybody fitted a Givi sump guard? Easy to fit? Decent quality?

Not planning to go off road but thinking about a sump guard to offer some protection from bigger debris and keep the gunge off the front of the engine and the exhausts (as we move into the bad weather).  Think they look OK too.

If not Givi, any others favoured: SW Motech, H&B etc?

Cheers

Stu

I have had mine (givi) for for a while and very happy with it. Easy to fit, provides good protection although lowers the ground clearence a tad. Some reflected noise and heat noticed at first but not bothersome. If you think it will help keep it clean you might be dissapointed . I found it much easier to keep clean without it. Does look good and gets lots of compliments. I have done plenty of bush bashing and it's defiantly good quality.

Thanks for the reply troops. They do look smart, but I was hoping it would be easier to clean the bike, just being lazy.  It would just be about aesthetics for me, unlikely to go off road but still worth considering.

Cheers

I opted for the SW Motec version, reasonably easy to fit, once all on 6 x Allen bolts unscrewed quickly and you get it off for cleaning / oil change , great quality and speedy service from German company. I did mine in black stone chip paint to keep colour scheme inline with rest of bikes running gear and engine.

Thanks cozmo.  Was looking at the SW Motech too.

Looks very cool in black to match the bike, very nice!

Hi all, new to Crosstourer but coming from VFR so all familiar.
I am liking the look of the SW-Motech item and especially the black finish.
Cozmo, did you have to prepare the guard before applying the black finish and how is the finish lasting?

thanks

MS

Do you need to remove the existing side panel guards to fit it or does it just fit over them. . . GIVI or SWM. . . I have 2013 CT . . . and do they both come in silver as well as black finish ?
