A while ago I replaced the pathetic Sherco plastic frame stops with some half stainless tube siliconed in place.

I sent the bike for a fairly significant un-piloted flight today - got off lightly with a dented tank and forks needing a re-alignment. The protector/stop in the photo above now looks like this:

The frame underneath it looks to have sustained no damage (there was a small dent from when it had the useless factory plastic stops, but it looks the same to me). I had a couple of mm of silicone holding it on and acting as padding, that was split and peeled under the impact area. Only a few minutes to peel the old stainless off and silicone on another, this time I think I've done a better job getting the stainless sitting squarely on the fork clamp chamfer (as you can see this one still got hit hard by the sharp bottom edge of the clamp) hopefully should work even better next time.
