SW Motech bash plate
« on: June 22, 2012, 02:21:10 PM »
What a lovely piece of kit! £177 delivered AND a special order from Germany. Read the Fitting instructions and I have to cut away some part of a lower fairing plastic!  :005:
Down to the dealers with it then...... :305:

Got me suspend for a moment there as I just ordered the skidplate a week ago. I downloaded the instruction from their web. Cut away of the plastic looks very minimal and only for the manual CT, looks from it. I guess it is acceptable compare to the protection it would give. Phew! I could live with it!  :047:

Yes, I think the cut is minimal and the plate will be so effective. My problem is me!
I would cut away too much or wreck it completely.  :430:

jacob, can you remove the oil filter without removing the skid plate after installation?

Hi matchip - it looks to me that you can I am able to get my hand in and around the oil filter the strut bar for the plate is not in the way, the honda side fairing is just in front of the oil filter but there seems to be enough gap.  :018:

Being a tight, greedy Scotsman, I'm going to fabricate a bash plate from an aluminium road sign! Could you advise me of how it's fastened to the bike as I'll need to fabricate mounts of some kind. Any info would be handy, (a copy of the fitting instructions perhaps?) thank in advance!
I'll let you all know how I get on!
