What does the damage look like on your clutch cover? I am looking to purchase case savers and there are a few different designs out there. I already purchased the Yosh case savers, but I'm not sure if it will actually save the cover in the event of an off....Thanks in advance!

Low speed high side that hit decently hard on the right...luckily the clutch was untouched (bar end sliders, frame sliders, spool sliders). My oil pump cover got rashed to hell, though. Wound up having to drill out a couple of the bolts to replace it. I put an R&G cover over that

Factory make engine cover protectors and the swingarm slider with the frame slider are your best protection
