I bit the bullet earlier this summer and bought a set of engine and side bag guards for my '06 FJR. I ordered them on Amazon.com as they are not offered on Amazon.ca. Took about a month to come in and only took me about 45 minutes to install. I really like the look of the engine guards up front. The side bag guards are nice but they interfere with the passenger being able to put their feet on the rear pegs. Think I can correct that with a custom (home made) adapter plate to pivot the top closer to the side bags. I ride without the side bags 90% of the time so I'll keep the side bag guards off most of the time anyway. Here are a few pics:

Looks great! I installed them on my 2016 recently and really like them but have not ridden with a passenger since installing them. Rarely ride 2 up so not a huge deal but sure would hate problems there when I do. Nice bike!
I have the rear R-Gaza on my 2008 AE, to help with rear foot clearance I purchased a used pair of MCL rear 2" drop foot peg brackets and foot boards that screw on the stock rear pegs.. Wife boots don't touch the back of my boots now. http://www.motorcyclelarry.com/index...products_id=31
He does not sell them anymore Murphy Kits is making front peg block with 1"drop but not sure if or when Murph is going to make the rears. Their may be others that make these.
So far I really like the R-Gaza guards. The engine guards are unobtrusive and when you do notice them they look like they belong there. The side bag guards (AKA elephant ears) are functional but since I typically don't ride with the side bags on unless I'm riding two-up, they are usually off the bike. When they are on they interfere with the passenger foot pegs...or at least they did until now. I fab'd up an adapter plate template out of sheet metal and then my brother got one of his guys to make two copies out of 1/4" steel. The plate allows the guards to pivot back closer to the bags and out of the way of the foot pegs. See pics below:
My wife sat on the back of the bike once they were installed and they no longer interfere with her trying to keep her feet on the rear foot pegs. Just in time for our annual 4-day ride to PA next week!
I went down on my 2005 FJR1300 with R-GAZA's crash bars and I only scratched my saddlebag, one fairing section and turn signal. All things that could be replaced. And not a scratch on my engine. Real testimony as the bike and I went down at highway speed:
