Pah, in my experience, they don't do much to helplol!!
u thought of crash bungs?
That would of been Yamaha crash bobbins though right?My bike was saved by the crash bungs! they destoryed boomerangs but id rather have that rather than all one side fooked, they do help. actually witnessed a guy put a claim in that the bobbins had cracked his side panels. 2 weeks later he had brand new ones from yam.
