Sorry if there is an obvious answer somewhere for this, but I wasn't sure based on the verbiage:

"The following motorcycles must have replacement covers/case guards installed on both sides of the engine: All Suzuki GSX and GSF models, 2005 and earlier Suzuki GSX-R"

I will be racing a 2005 Suzuki GSX-R.

Does this mean that I must replace the case covers AND install case guards? Just want to make sure before I spend the money on both.

Are there any restrictions on brands and manufacturers for these parts?

It's one or the other. I would just get guards. We've been very happy with the Woodcraft ones.

Thanks for the quick reply. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but all I can find are covers for this particular bike. Do you have a link to the guards you are talking about?

This is what I have been able to find

Also, do I even need the starter idler cover to pass inspection?

Looks like your model year is different with what is available.

She may have one cover and one guard on her '11. The bike isn't at the house or I would check. Their are guards available for that year on both sides though.

Russell,

I would recommend all of the above. These components will not only keep your machine from spilling oil in the event of a crash they will also save you money in the long run. When you consider the price of parts like engine cases, crankshaft, stator, flywheel, and starter clutch the case savers and or covers are pretty cheep.

Agreed, which is what I plan to do. I would just like to make sure that I understand the rules so that I have no issues.
