Good thought regarding a cradle. I also have to work in the exhaust running under there too. I am in the process of buying a header so I should be able to mock that in place.

I'm convinced with the thickness of plate I am running that these sets are going to be massively strong. If I crash hard enough to wreck those, my bike will be the last thing on my mind.
