That was my post that Speedy Russ linked to. I forgot to put R&G in the title, so that is why it may not have shown up in your search. That is pretty much what happened to me at a track day.

I would go for the R&G fiberglass covers that completely cover the cases on both sides, less effect on ground clearance.

The main problem is they touch at the same time as the pegs, so you get no warning. As soon as the slider touches you low side.

It will be interesting to see if you get a reply. I should have written at the time, but life got in the way!

Well, obviously I haven't gotten any reply from R&G. Can't say that I'm surprised either. Admitting any problem exists may not be a legally self-preserving course of action. What may eventually happen is that one day, the left side slider will silently disappear from their site. Let's hope that happens anyway.

Ignoring the problem is generally not a good idea either... and could be basis for a legal case.

The case covers are not fiberglass, they are just plastic sliders.. and wear down quick. Although they are better than nothing, they're pretty far from a well-designed product.

*at least they didn't use to be fiberglass. They could have changed their manufacturing since I bought them.. but I doubt it.
