For track, protection is a must.

Um, no. The c/f is more likely to snap than tweak the swingarm. It's there to prevent your foot from getting caught in the chain/sprocket.

Some racing organizations actually require them. And dirt bikes have been using a variation of this for years.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

No. Glue on CF for the frame and swing arm saved my bike from gravel scratches and such.
I ride without any form of tilt block through the engine Mount, but covers on all covers and frame/swingarm.

Works for me. I'm not that experienced so usually licins to more experienced people - at that recommendation is my setup.

How do you prefer it?

That spool holding that thing on ain't made of cf and the tensile strength of cf can be higher than steel depending on how the part is made. The swingarm is only aluminum. Da math. Do it.

FWIW the shark fin on my CBR is not attached to the spool but with threaded inserts on the flat underside. I have a pair of 6mm aluminum bolts (yes I said aluminum) securing the part; should a Bad Thing happen, those bolts are more likely to shear than pull the inserts out of the swingarm. My post, do you understand what I'm sayin'?
