    e.thirteen super charger in Trans-Red

    These certainly look nice, and would compliment my build great... but $45??? is it worth it?

    Who has used these bash guards? and where can I find them cheaper?

    definitely worth it, it is BY FAR the stand alone best bashguard out there. there is NOTHING you can do to break/crack/dent/bend this thing. i've done drops and accidently straddled rocks between my front and rear wheels and full blown smashed this thing on to them with no problems at all.
    will it scratch? sure. but find me someone with an unscratched bashguard and i'll show you a puss who's never laid out his bike.

    lexan and other thermoplastics are what all guards are going to be made out of soon. the thing is 1/2 inch thick and could literally stop a bullet. metal dents and bends, this stuff doesnt. i'm picking up a new one soon because i'm lowering my tooth count and need a better fit, but i havent yet found a place online that sells new ones for much cheaper.

    They're pretty awesome... you just have to be careful when you install them. Over torque and they crack.

    I had one for a couple weeks until I snapped my frame and then went SS... it was pretty goood. Slides right over stuff when I hit it.

    Ya, e13 superchargers are the best. i have one on my urban assault bike and often smash into concrete objects and it's fine. just small scratches and some dust. definatly the best. be careful when installing it though. you don't want to over tighten it.
