Cheap and they work..

Those are good, but they limit the steering radius quite a bit. so if you're riding in the city quite a bit, those are not for you.

next thing to notice is, that they will create an impact point on the fork tube, as well as on the steering head. two things to look out for...

i have them installed on my bike, but i also changed the distance from the bolt-end to the steering stop on the lower, to be pretty close to where the R&G stops bump in, to distribute a potential impact a bit.

+1 on R&G, i have broken off both left+right one,some might argue these have a too small impact zone but with 3 crashes i see no damage caused by them. Just saved me alot of work and $$$ as they are supposed to do.
Dont know Rja4z3 about cracking the headbase,member Sutki here got a cracked one wich may be caused by R&G steering stops if i remember correct,but you know,forces have to go somewhere and something will get broken if its a hard downer.
Thanks from Phl

The Panigale is not know for its short steering radius to begin with LOL.. This is definitely NOT the bike of choice for Gymkhana competitions LOL
A Honda Gold Wing turns in sharper than the Panigale..! Hell, my Ford F-150 extended cab pickup turns in sharper than the Panigale LOL

Race bikes pretty much all have pretty short steering radiuses these days...
