I don't think T-Rex makes them for back. They make for front, but for the ZX14 (2008-2011) but those fit our C14s because its same same.

For the back, you put sliders on your swingarm, where the black domed protector already is.

Like I said, I have a brand new, unopended Projek swingarm slider kit which I would ship anywhere in the continental US for $55, which is a steal.  I don't need them because I put the MC Enterprises rear guard bars on, and they keep the swingarm and drive shaft/wheel unit off the ground.



 I just ordered the front and rear guards for mine. I didn't think I needed anything else but I wasn't sure.  Thanks Jr

You are all set then! MC Enterprises front and rear protect the whole bike, even in a 20 mph low side slide.

I like the cages...  hoping I never have to test them but they sure seem sufficient to protect the bike should I do a dumb-drop or low-speed oops.....  not that I would ever admit it if I did...

OK, so I've been riding bikes for 40 years and about 7 years ago I took my Triumph Trophy 1200 to a local Vegas shop... had to wander around to find it and they were in the back of a mall where the pavement was sloped for drainage... I did a low speed circle looking for a place to park and for the first time in my life, right there in front of a whole audience of high-performance racing bikers and mechanics... dropped my Trophy.  Why oh why was there an audience?  sigh....  broke stuff....especially my pride... glad to have the cages on this one.

I have the Top Block and the small rear bars. I never bought them for my ST1300 and the bikes looks like it.
I got a look at ZG's at the time I was purchasing my new 2012 and one look at how clean they looked on the bike I was sold.

+1 .... Ryan is good people.


Why thank you, good sir! I've been lurking here listening to the discussion so if anyone has any direct questions for me about the company or the bars, I'd be happy to answer them either here, via email, or over the phone!

I have to say, I appreciate the kind words from you guys! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that you guys really dig the guards we worked so hard on designing and manufacturing!
