There's a few options out there. Just depends on how much protection you want, and how fat your wallet is.

The OEM one that you have is decent bottom-level protection. Doesn't do much, but it does do more to protect your bike than not having anything at all does.

A step up from that is an add-on plate that Grizzlybear sells.

Provides a good bit of extra protection, helps keep your oil cooler clean, and is adjustable based on how much protection you need at the time.

At the top end of the line, is the plate that Beach40 had some fab shop make for him.

Looks to be very well made, provides significantly more protection than the stock plate, and can even be customized to what you want. It'll even fit with the factory crash bars installed. Downside is that it's a bit expensive.
