I would ask them to add the little rear brake master cylinder guard to your order.

Thanks for the heads up! I think i remember seeing an earlier year model where the master cylinder reservoir is in a vulnerable position. The reservoir on my 2020 is tucked in out of way and looks to be in a fairly safe position. If I do decide it needs protection I'll fabricate a gaurd myself, I have a good supply of stainless steel material.

I bought a real nice one made in China for $17 shipped-not worth the effort for that price
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Needless to say, I'm very happy! I ordered my Rally Raid engine gaurd on Wednesday (11/4). When I placed the order the expected delivery time was 6 - 8 weeks which was no big deal as I'm in no hurry. The next day, Tursday I get an email saying my engine gaurd has been shipped. That was fast, awesome! On Friday I get an email from UPS saying my engine gaurd will be delivered on Monday (11/9). Even more awesome! So on Monday afternoon the big brown Santa brought my engine gaurd!



This morning I spent about an hour installing. Everything fit perfectly, no problems.



Thank you Rally Raid!
