SW-Motech bash plate
on: November 05, 2020, 01:40:23 PM
I am looking to buy a SW-Motech bash plate for my 2016 CT. I would prefer this said item to be located in the US.

I have the SW-Motech engine guards and the SW-Motech bash plate is needed to fit properly.

PM if you have one you want to sell.

Why do you need the SW Motech bashplate with those engine guards? I prever to call is crashbars though, because a bashplate is more of an engine guard.
If i look at pictures of the SW Motech crashbars they're not even close to the bashplate. I'm 100% sure the Hepco & Becker will also fit because that one is almost the same as the SW Motech but in the front it's a little higher for better protection of the exhaust.
I'm also 99% sure the Givi will also fit.

I asked the question on this forum months ago about what bash plater would work with the SW-Motech bars and all I got was crickets. The first crash bars I wanted were the Hepco-Becker bars and after two months of waiting I cancelled the order.

So if there is a 100% correct fitment and if they were available I would consider buying them.

I have the H&B crashbars and bashplate. Plan was to change the bashplate for a Givi because i don't have those parts for show.
The H&B does it's work just fine but the Givi also goes up on the sides and the original plastic covers have to go and that's perfect since the left side mount is broken of the engine (is a casting on the engine block) and also the cover is cracked.
That's the risk of going offroad. But for the more difficult tracks i recently bought a much lighter XT660 Ténéré and the budget for now is going to that bike to make him ready for the TET and the Givi on the CT is only a replacement for an already fitted part so it can wait.
Still do offroad with the CT though.
I looked around a bit and the mounting places of the different bashplates are not even close to the crashbars, only with the Givi the small cowls need to go. With the SW Motech and Hepco & Becker they stay in place  but the bashplate nor the crashbars will protect these when going seriously offroad.
