Broken flange?

Recommended Posts

Just saw this item and curious if anyone has broke their flange and if this would have prevented it, or have this on and smashed the pipe to where this definitely saved their flange.

Not all that expensive of a part and seems legit in theory.

I know that the flange and cylinder are a matched set so this could very well save quite a bit of money if a flange is broken, not to mention ending the ride on a bad note.

Yes, a bunch of people have broken their flanges. I look at it as good insurance against a ruined race or trail ride day for not much money.

I installed one on my bike. Easy to install and should do what it's designed to do.

For sure it was a suicide log crossing mission.. must have been 40 logs deep ... I added a skid plate that protects the pipe... For sure it helped and kept it from happening a long time ago... That being said the best protection is the skid plate with the pipe gaurd.. I really b
