I'm still working in improve the ACD skid plate. I would like to reduce the "bump" needed to fit the oil filter.
My dealer found a smaller filter that it works in the ST so I'm making a new cover.
This cover is going to have some screws so I can change the filter without taking the skid plate. I also made bigger holes to take the oil off.
Now change the oil and oil filter is easier than before!








I also cut the supports that can cause a hole in the sump if there is a big impact in the skid plate

Yes, I was looking at my skid plate last night and was finding my eyes drifting between the plate and the diamond saw.

By the way, when are you going to paint the frame orange.

I'd just love to see the confused looks on peoples faces...

I hope when they have time they can work in the crash bars and with some hard bags which I need for a long trip I’m planning….
...I am going to be riding soon and I need some good looking crash bars!

No… I don’t like orange…

Few weeks ago we shared the bikes with a KTM 990 owner. He was really surprised how easy the ST works in dirt. He’s a KTM fan but he must recognise mi bike was closer to the 990 than he expected.
I really liked the KTM, the engine is incredible with a “racing” touch… really a fun bike. But the only thing I really envy from it is the front suspension, much better tan ours.

Then I took my ST again, push hard and need to wait to him in every intersection… he went angry

New handlebar: a Protaper Raptor, higer than stock and more "dirt bike" shape.
I'm very please with it:

So.. now I can say she is finished.
I needed to do a big lifting after the hard trip in Morocco: clean it, oil it, paint, polish, repair some bits... but she is like new again











I need to paint the engine and crash bars, they where scratched.... but I like how it looks

I really wanted to make a witty comment that you call it finished without changing this or that, but it looks like you modded almost everything that seems possible :-)

Thanks for sharing all the information in your mods.

Your ST is fantastic

I was wondering how those NONE exhausts sound like

Any videos?

Hi Jaumev,

I just contacted Cedric to order an ACD skid plate for mine
Thanks for all the info and for doing the development on this product, I think it's fantastic.

Cheers
