Custom rear crash pads - on passenger links

Hello friends,

There are two mounts on the rear that are dedicated to holding the passenger footrests.

I'd like to use them so they hold a customer made rear crash pads made out of skateboard wheels.

Can someone tell me what do I have to buy and how I would to that?

I have thought of
Skateboard wheels,
bolts
spacers
rod

What size are thee rod, spacers, bolts, etc? What metal should this be so it does not SNAP the frame?

Any advice is welcomed!!!

Thanks

Even if you don't buy from them it may give you an idea for what you want to do. I actually did the full engine and exhaust kit and the fit was very good.

All of the crash designed devices work. non will prevent sever body damage in a real crash, they might prevent a disabling broken thing, and that's what they are meant to do. as a racer who has had the opportunity to test them, the only trick that really worked was a longer bar end and a cut in the brake/clutch lever just past the ball, ( the ball breaks off but you have enough lever to continue.

^^ yes. They will help save you from body damage when you step on a socket in the garage while moving the bike...
