Not sure about skid plate except for custom fab. Look on TigerTriple.com there are plans for one.

I do have a set of ThunderBike crash bars.

Best of luck

Here is the thread from Tigertrple.com

http://www.tigertriple.com/forum/ind...c,10455.0.html

I used the plans through the PDF files and built mine from titanium.....cause I can, I believe 1/4" aluminum is actually a better spec for this, but that's your option.







So some background on my install is that I have Hepcobecker crash bars and the factory exhaust mounted skid plate tabs were hacked off and ground flat. The front of the skid plate mounts on cushion clamps (P clamps or Adel Clamps) with the clamps on the forward cross bar.

The aft mount was a bit more challenging, with the lack of suitable hardware strong enough I decided to go to the upper/lower engine mount bolt with a self locking nut installed ontop of the already there engine nut. Easy peasy


Good luck with the project.

You could make a mint in the vendor thread offering these to Girlie riders now that Touratech & others have discontinued.

I could be talked into knocking some of these out, but they would need to be welded up by your own welder.....mine has moved on.

Mounting them would be up to the individual. I have HepcoBecker crash bars, but others might need to experiment with their own crash bars.
