shock-protector thingy (the way  Wunderlich create their megadollar  
carbon fiber protector) or screwed  just below into the swingarm   

Make a flap that hangs from the  centerstand crossbar. Don't have a 
centerstand? use the bosses to mount a piece  of  steel to mount a flap. 

The flap idea is an  old Harley rider's thing. I never bought into it at all. 
In fact, the guys who  have them usually still get flats. I think it's 
because they ride on the  untravelled pavement. If you keep to the car tire track, 
the cars will pick up  all the nails for you.
