Anybody know of any company that makes crash bungs for the tornado? R&G list them for the RS but not for the standard tornado, is there a difference? Cheers, Dave.

I have a set that I bought off Nique (before he sold his nelli and defected off the forum)

Never got round to fitting them - drop me a PM if your interested (dont worry if I dont get back to you for a few days - in the process of moving and stuff and will be internetless for a good few days at the end of the week)

hope for bungs !!!

Spoke to R&G they will make a kit for the TRE if they get enough phone calls or emails requesting the same. I was told 12 enquiries will do the trick.

[email protected]

The problem with the kit on their shelves is that our engine has a casting that hits the after market mounting on the bungs. it could be ground of but would weeken the casing.

I have posted my letter to R&G.
Cheers

Cheers for your help guys. :bow: Hopefully meeting up with KurtP to purchase the ones he bought from Saloe, as he's local to me. I know he's busy at the moment so if they fall through then i'll try R&G direct.
Thanks, Dave.

Collected the crash bungs from Kurt today, cheers mate. I'm not sure what make thet are but they replace the engine mounting bolt that runs through the frame at about shin level, so no need to cut holes in the fairing.:clap:

I have fitted bungs that needed holes in fairings on other bikes.
Its not a problem to line up.
Some emulsion paint is needed on end of a screw that markes the position of hole on the fairing..then drill. Its easy.

Not sure if hole in faring is needed but its still better than damaged panels.

I'm very interested if no fairing cutting needed. :)

I've cut fairings before, but just don't like it. :bawl:

I think the aero ones look good as well. ;)

AND - WELL DONE JUREK - :clap:

UPDATE on CRASH PROTECTION

News today.. :ele: :ele: :ele:

R & G racing have made crash bungs for the TRE
A small hole shall be required to be drilled as the gap between fairing and engine to small to put metal extension panel.

Fork protectors and rear swing arm protectors also made.

Unexpected Bonus They have also made an engine casing protector. Bar ends still in the process.

Will post photos after R & G photo shoot.


Thank you R & G racing :clap: :clap: :clap:
