the way i installed it makes it even more stronger cause when you drop the bike, all the hit will go on the tip i have.

the guards are solid, the only think i wish it had was more coverage on the hand for wind, they are a bit narrow but it's so it clears all panels.

for $23.. its worth it and if u crash hard on them and say it does break, only the plastic will break, the inside is all metal. so it may bend or so. worst case scenario you pay $23 for new ones or the seller may accept replacing it for u

I dropped the bike yesterday and nothing happened to anything, i dropped it in pretty sandy area, so it was not a solid ground, the sand was loose.
