Jug guard.

Hmm. Where does the back attach?

Looks like the little rubber bumper just rides on something?

I would imagine the rear attaches to one of the inlet manifold mounts, M6 allen key.
The rubber block would reside on the back of the guard, against the side of the tappet cover.

Any English expose' of their other Guzzi specific components.

As far as my ideal carbon fibre CARC protector is concerned, a local boat builder could make moulds, starting at around AUD$2000, and for that I get just one. If he produces 20 I could sell for about $200 each covering cost of production plus packaging and postage.

Ah, yes. It may well be just a rubber bumper.

Wayne, it's too high up to be attached to the manifold. If it was, I wouldn't install one under any circumstances.

Can offer any real protection given it only mounts at one end?

Looks like it mounts on front engine/frame mount and a bracket goes around the same frame rail tube.
The rear rubber bumper rests against rear of the valve cover with the section at the side if the valve cover floating.
Might have a rubber pad between the bracket and side of the valve cover, might work and as it is only secured at the front would deflect without loading up the front frame rail where it is secured.

i own those and yes is only a bumper on the rear side, they are really robust and well made, i sadly dropped the bike one morning and thanks to those guards i did not damaged the head.
they have 2 bumpers in front of the cylinder too...
honestly i don't think there is something better out there.

I might get a set when funds permit. Assuming they ship to Oz.

Mark, I have contacted him, they do not ship outside of Eu at this stage but are willing to investigate if they get an order from Oz. I was interested in the Carc cover but was a mite concerned it may rub the paint off the Carc after many km ? (Tony, I have checked with him, the pretty head protectors do not fit big brother of GRiSO)

Maybe if there's enough interest from Oz, they might. Or perhaps we could consolidate an order?

"No, had no crashes with my GRiSO so far"
Great news, but does the carbon fibre rub directly on the paint of the Carc ?

You didn't notice the smiley at the end of my post I think, did You? OK, let's turn off ironic mode:

If it rubs You can put a flat piece of rubber between CARC and protector as a spacer, maybe from a tyre tube, I do not see the problem. I'm asking myself if this would even be better anyway.

Both my covers are a little worse for wear, so Im interested in a consolidated order, if this can make it happen.

Guys at kc34 they are a little family business and they build their stuff directly on their GRiSO, i doubt that the carc protector will scratch the paint off as they are made with love, not like china factories.
if they don't send to OZ we can have a look in doing a cross shipment with the help of paypal.

This is the response I received last week to my enquiry on their website :-

Hello Gregg
fist of all I apologize for the delay in replying to your email, and I thank you for your interest in our products

Unfortunately head protectors for Moto Guzzi GRiSO are not compatible with the Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport because fixing point and the chassis are different

The carc protection is available and is compatible with Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport

At the moment we are just a little company and we are not organized for shipping out of UE, 
If you are interested to buy the Carc protection I need a couple of days because this would be the first expedition outside the European Union and I need to find some information and evaluate how to proceed 


If you require any further information, feel free to contact me. 
Regards 
Kevin Cendali

Held by 3 clamps wrapped around back of housing. More cosmetic than protective?
Considering the "CARC" emblem is still exposed, the portion most susceptible to damage. Anybody crash tested one of these?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


I propose a thick carbon fibre cap that would be glued to the housing, to cover previous damage/impending damage.
Carbon is used for case protection in WSBK, very crash worthy.

My guy says "CARC" could be recreated on the outside of the carbon cap. He has just purchased a new oven, and now experimenting with pre-preg cf

I will test my diff temp with infrared thermometer, considering CF wheels don't dissipate heat like alloy wheels, my diff & tyres run warmer than stock bikes.
Normal aerospace adhesives soften at 70*C, we will investigate.
