I think it's probably a good idea. Maybe Joker will chime in with his opinion.
As far as my crash, it was in grass and the hard parts suffered no damage. But everything that stuck out like the clutch and footpegs got bent or ripped off.
I think it'll depend on what touches down in a crash. I don't know.
Some things I seem to hear getting damaged commonly is the water pump elbow, clutch cover, exhaust. I don't know if any of the crash bars cover the clutch cover or elbow.
RG is making some clutch cover protectors for bikes, but none for the BMW as listed.
