T-Rex Racing Engine Guard

There's no way this coming riding season I can endure longer rides without being able to stretch again.
There's a new enginge guard on the market by T-Rex Racing, and based on the lower bend of the design it looks perfect for resting your feet. Anyone by chance tried these?

Long story short I figured I'd be the guinea pig for these and just placed an order.
If these workout chances are I'll be selling my underbelly fairing if anyone is interested.

I might try these with some added rubber on the top rail. Iím just looking to be able to stretch a little on one to two hour runs, even if only one leg at a time.

i'm interested to know what you think Bill, it definitely looks like they made it wide enough so you can put your foot there for rest

Well, ran into a snag. Engine guard came in (fast shipping), but the supplied bolts are for a 500 not a 300. The 500 uses two frame bolts in the front where it attaches, the 300 uses one long 10x292mm bolt factory.

Emailed the company to see if they just sent the wrong pack of bolts. If not, will have to return and continue the search.

I am starting to think that T-Rex can't get much right when it comes to the revels.

Try MC Enterprises they specifically say they have 2 different engine guard for the Rebel 300 & 500.

Can you guys make a picture of how you rest your legs on it?

So far I couldn't find any pictures in the internet. It may happened that position of legs is not comfortable or something else.



Thanks.

I installed them on my 500. Very easy bolt on. It is comfortable to rest your legs on. The only concern I have is that your foot is in kind of a tight fit and it might be kind of hard to get it back to your rear brake pedal in an emergency stop.

thx for the pix Hoff, looks like it would definitely be comfortable on a longer ride- rest your legs here and there.
