Promoto Oggy Knobbs are an Australian made, designed and owned product made with only the finest materials, so we fitted a set to our LAMS Yamaha MT-07 Tracer!
We’ve just installed a set of Promoto Oggy Knobbs as well as a Case Saver from the same brand on our Long Term Yamaha MT-07 Tracer. These are a great investment in any bike you want to keep long term as they help reduce the damage of dropping a bike, and can do the same in many accidents.
Especially with LAMS machines it’s a pretty common expectation that the bike will be dropped at least once at some point, and there’s no better choice than a set of Australian-made Promoto Oggy Knobbs for ensuring damage is minimal. On many machines a simple drop with Oggys can just mean scratched ‘bar ends and mirrors. You’d be amazed how much higher the costs can go without them though if you get unlucky.
Promoto also ensures that only the best materials are used in their Oggy Knobbs, and these are designed specifically for each machine, taking into consideration protecting the most important (and costly) parts of your machine, so the frame, engine, tank and radiator. Often they can also help protect bodywork, so it’s a win-win situation.
They are also especially designed to take into account the machine you’re riding, these aren’t just a puck of plastic bolted onto your machine. They are specifically designed to use the most appropriate mounting point, that won’t cause further damage to your machine, if they come into play.
You’re paying for the expertise and highest quality materials, and like I’ve already said they are Australian made and Australian owned.
The Case Saver works along similar lines, it’s really easy to damage your engine cases, and it’s not only a badge of shame, but also an expensive and annoying item to replace, and that’s if you haven’t worn all the way through the case, which often means leaking fluids and no chance of limping home.
Another benefit is you won’t even notice the Case Saver fitted, and it’s even easier to fit than the regular Oggy Knobbs!
I speak from personal experience when I say that Oggy Knobbs are a great investment, and I had them fitted on my FZ-06 for years, and they proved their worth several times. I also, unfortunately, know how easily engine cases can be damaged and how expensive a replacement is!
Here’s the fitment process of the Promoto Oggy Knobbs and Case Saver.
Oggy Knobb MT-07 Tracer Fitment:
These are two really easy DIY accessories you can fit to your bike, with Oggy Knobbs available for a huge variety of machines. Pricing varies from model to model, so check with your local motorcycle store for model specific information. And best of all they are Australian made.
Especially for new riders I’d definitely recommend the investment, it’s not just about you dropping your bike, it’s just as possible that someone else will knock it over or cause an incident. If you aren’t keen on doing it yourself you could also ask your local store about fitment.
