Crash Protection/Sliders/Engine Guard?

Hi Everyone-

Just joined the forum and it look a great resource for information

Just purchased a 2017 KTM Duke 690.

I'm super excited.

I'll be riding, as often as possible, in the canyons of San Diego and Southern California.

I'm also looking forward to doing some track days and/or Superbike Schools.
Did a couple of Keith Code weekends about 15 years ago.


My question:

I get a 20% discount on any parts I add to the bike in the first 30 days.

What would you suggest I purchase to protect the bike if the bike is tipped over (it happens) or "slides" as a result of a fall/low-side?

Here's my rough list.
Suggestions?
Thoughts?
Product Recommendations?

1.Race Style Lever Guards/Brake and Clutch
2.Engine Guard (Black)
3.Slide Pads Front and Rear
4.?
5.?

Thanks!!!!!

The crash protection of this bike is phenomenal and probably the leading reason I bought it.

1. Crash bars (Orange)
2. Bobbins or axle sliders. Is that what you mean by slide pads?
3. The Rok Bagoros slider to protect your muffler.
4. A set of barkbusters to protect your levers. You can get shorties too I guess.

That is probably the full kit.

While at it get some rear sets if it isn't an R model.
Your toes will be scraping the tarmac easily.

Loving the new R
