I WILL KEEP TRYING TILL I COME UP WITH ONE THAT FITS THESE NEEDS. THANKS DALE

    new skid plate for dct models, protects the ops sensors, and the shift motor on the right side, and uses the right side frame rail, as a mounting point, now uses nine bolts, to the frame to protect the motor. the plate is narrower at the rear, for better cornering clearance. but may not work on bike that are lowered. will work with honda center stand, having problem with

    Are there some crash bars or center stands that you know of that do NOT fit with this crash plate installed?
    The SW Motech crash bars at least seem to fit fine.

    I'm ready.

    How difficult is the install? Anything need to come off? Everything included or will I need to buy a few bolts or something?

    Please PM me with price and expected delivery.

    Fuzzy,

    Dale has a well built skid plate, it looks great and is built better than most. I have another brand of skid plate, as Dale was out at the time I purchased, that I painted black before I installed it. I painted mine with Rust-Oleum textured black, I believe that was some else on this forum idea. The skid plate sure is a lot easier to keep looking good this way. Every time I change oil, I give the skid plate another quick coat of paint and it keeps looking good. Gets rid of a lot of scars this way. Just an idea someone else gave me.
