I am considering getting some carbon fiber frame guards and was wondering which is better, GYTR or DSP?

I don't have any experience with them but another choice would be from www.carbonfiberworks.com

I bought the Acerbics plastic ones and I can tell you first hand they are not all that good. the left side fits good and is ok but the right side is junk, that's Junk! it rotates out and catches my boot all of the time. I got them because they were cheap. I guess that goes to show you get what you pay for. They look cool on my bike though. :)

Hope this helps

I have some Devol aluminum frame guards that always used to look bad after a few rides, due to the aluminum (always needed polishing)! So I took some roll on bedliner and coated my frame guards with it. It looks really good and grips up awesome!

The DSP's I installed on my bike have been very disappointing. I rubbed a hole through the right one in less than a month.

My GYT-R carbon fiber's came in today. They look really trick, have not mounted them yet though. I hope I don't rub through them, they cost a grip ($100). I know against my better judgement I bought the carbon's, they just look too cool.
