No broken collar bone. But I'm not a doctor so who knows what the damage would have been without this.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Leatt GPX Five.Five Neck Brace Leatt believes that the 5.5 Neck Brace is the most technologically advanced neck brace in the world. The CE certified 5.5 neck brace balances the needs of comfort, effectiveness and safety by allowing greater freedom of movement and adjustment to more closely meet the needs of top level racers whilst Leatts commitment to safety ensures that key safety features pioneered by Leatt are built into each brace. The core of what makes Leatt neck braces work is Alternative Load Path Technology (ALPT), and for the ALPT to work optimall, neck braces must fit correctly. The adjustability built into all Leatt neck braces is not just for comfort, but to ensure a correct fit that assists in optimizing effectiveness of your neck brace. The front and rear sliding SureFit adjusters can be set for your personal body shape, without tools, in less than 30 seconds. The brace can also be readjusted as necessary for growing kids or when worn with different apparel. To further optimize fit, the improved CoreFlex rear thoracic strut has an exclusive feature that allows it to be adjusted to 4 setting angles. This is done with a simple elastomeric bumper that can be set at 0, 5, 10 or 15 degrees in seconds. The 5.5 has lowered side areas, below the ear, that increases comfort and wearability, especially on kids, smaller statured riders and riders with shorter necks. A simple pop off shoulder pad that can raise or lower your brace to suit your neck length or helmet rim profiles. Both the front and the back feature has the new split design that promotes broader dissipation of energy transmitted to the body and have new molded padding for greater comfort. The semi-rigid chassis is flexible and adjustable enough to fit most riders body shape while the structure remains rigid enough to help transmit energy during an impact while multiple engineered fracture points and crumple zones will bend or break away at pre-determined stress levels to help contribute to a riders safety. The improved CoreFlex rear thoracic strut is more comfortable than ever and still has the engineered fracture point at the top that allows it to break away in certain severe impacts. The strut is lined with the same soft padding as on all the surfaces that ride against your body, and this protective padding is on the brace edges facing inwards towards the soft tissues of the neck. The injected foam padding is more durable and easier to clean than ever before and designed to accommodate custom sticker kits. Features Chassis design made of fiberglass reinforced polyamide Helmet rim striking platform for increased head and helmet freedom of motion 5 way adjustability Sliding front and rear SureFit adjusters to ensure optimum fit 4 angle rear thoracic strut adjustments fits more body shapes Adjustable over the shoulder height for optimizing freedom of motion for different neck lengths and helmet rim profiles Sculptured, split front for improved comfort and fit Improved CoreFlex split rear thoracic strut is more comfortable and designed to work with the bodys natural movements Thoracic rear strut engineered to snap off before applying excessive pressure to the back Improved low profile open / close system incorporating a spring loaded push-button Easy to use emergency release mechanism for injured riders Engineered collarbone cutout to help keep your helmet and brace away from your most fragile bones Injected foam padding on upper surface is more durable, easier to clean and designed to accommodate custom sticker kits Air flow ribs in the padding ensure optimum ventilation Folding rear thoracic strut for easier packing Optional clear chest strap included CE certified as Personal Protective Equipment 89/686/EEC

Only spent a few hours on the track with these on. It wasn't raining and I didn't break em loose at all so don't put much stock in my rating on tread life, grip levels, or wet traction.

Frankly, I can't comment on the grip levels b/c I don't have the skillz to break the tires loose on command. I haven't had the tires for long enough to comment on tread life, and it hasn't rained. Revzilla might want to consider adding a "no comment" option to the choices as I doubt most riders are drifting corners to find out the ultimate grip levels....

Woodcraft Complete Rearset Kit Suzuki SV650 2003-2005 The complete rearset kit consists of the rearset plates, footpegs, our CFM 3 piece billet pedals and all of the needed hardware (shift rods, etc) to install the kit properly. This full kit is required for the 04+ SV's, as the OEM pedals will not fit on these brackets. They are made from tough, aircraft grade 6061 T6 Aluminum. They are much stronger than OEM brackets and will give your bike a look that will separate you from the crowd. Each kit is individually designed for each model of motorcycle to give you the optimum foot position and ground clearance for racing. In the event that you need replacement parts, any individual piece of this kit is available. Moves pegs up and back 1.25 on the SV650. Moves pegs up and back .75 on the SV650S. Can be used in either standard or GP shift.

It makes the bike about as cramped as I'd wanna be at 6' 2" and with clip ons. I haven't wreaked on em yet so disregard the durability rating and install wasn't done by me, so I have no idea.
