Cut Your Damage,
Not Your Fairing!
Bike Design Bodywork Mod-Free Motorcycle Crash Protectors
The problem; “I want crash protectors, but I don’t want to cut holes in the bodywork”

Now HPS have the answer; Bike Design 'No Cuts' Motorcycle Crash Protectors need no mods to your bodywork!

Individually designed and manufactured kits with tough hardware for many bikes - which completely eliminate the need for unsightly holes in bodywork. In addition, Race Protectors (which do require bodywork mods) are also available.

"I reckon I've saved literally thousands of pounds over the years by fitting crash protectors. They're a really worthwhile investment and I think every road rider should give them some serious consideration. They're simple enough to fit and they're not too intrusive."

Ian Biederman, Absolute Rider Training

What is the difference between Bike Design Crash Protectors and Bike Design Race Protectors?

Because they provide a secure locating point, most crash protector kits are fixed directly onto a bike’s engine mounts. On many bikes, however, these points are concealed by the bike’s bodywork meaning that it’s necessary to either cut bodywork holes to access the engine mounts, or find another solution…

Bike Design Crash Protectors are kits that - where necessary - have special brackets which locate behind your bike’s bodywork to provide secure mounting points for the crash bobbins - without any modification to the panels. No holes have to be drilled and no cutting is involved whatsoever and, because of this, your bike’s value is protected for resale.

In addition, Bike Design offer Race Protector crash kits - which always mount directly to the engine mounts - and are for those who don’t mind cutting holes in their bike’s bodywork (e.g. if you have aftermarket fairings on a race or track-only bike).

What else is special about Bike Designs kits?

  • Each crash protection kit consists of high quality CNC machined components and mounting brackets where necessary

  • To achieve high quality finish, all mounting brackets are manufactured from stainless steel and laser cut (although aluminium brackets may reduce the weight, they are less rigid than steel of the same size where space is at a premium)

  • The protectors have machined aluminium bases which are tailor-made for each specific bike to provide the maximum support to the special bobbin material

  • The bobbins are CNC turned from Ertacetal (as opposed to Nylon or Teflon, which most kits use), a carefully developed synthetic material with a set of special and ideal properties:

    - Ertacetal has high oil content to resist “snagging” and friction melting
      against the road surface

    - Ertacetal is not brittle to avoid shattering in high impact situations

    - Ertacetal has a smooth and attractive surface finish after machining

  • Only high-tensile bolts are used (12.9 grade wherever over 60mm length) which are zinc plated to minimise corrosion

  • By using these components Bike Design are able to provide extremely light mounting kits - e.g. a Yamaha YZF-R1 kit weighs less than 1,000 grams - with high rigidity

  • Simply said, Bike Design protection looks neat, has proven its worth in races everywhere - including the World Supersport Championship - and are an essential add-on for regular track-day addicts, sporting or touring riders and professional racers!

  • All parts are available to order separately if damaged after a crash
