    Default Engine Case Covers Required after you have Frame Sliders installed

    Hey Guys,
    Another query that I am having now. My triumph service centre guys are suggesting to get engine Case covers installed on my Striple RS.
    I was wondering , are they really useful or mostly makerting gimmick .
    I do plan to get a set of Evotech Frame Sliders and Radiator Guard for sure . So does engine case covers add any more value or not.
    IF anyone who has experience about the same could throw some information , that would be awesome.

    Thanks in advance.

    Lay your bike down on the ground, and check to see how close the engine case is to the road. If the sliders hold the bike well off the ground, you can probably skip the case covers (which appear to be nylon anyway). If the engine is close to the ground, you might want the covers to protect against the possibility of the bike passing over rocks or high spots in the pavement while sliding.
