skidplates

Hey Joey, I got your check and the skidplates are on the way. I would think you should have them any day now. Thanks. Ernie

R1200GS skidplates

I've got a skidplate set and a dash shelf for a R12GS adventure ready to go out to Billy in Oregon. It's on the way. Thanks for the order. Here's a picture of the dsa/shelf installed. 2HE

Best regards,
Ernie makes a fabulous skid plate, you won't find any better for the coverage. Very solid construction and fitment! I have one on mine for almost 2 years and couldn't be happier. Don't worry about shipping to Canada, Ernie ships USPS. The gap between the front and the center stand skid is necessary to provide space for when the center stand is down. When on the center stand the gap is NIL! Perfect fit.
Here's a pic of mine installed on my 08 GSA....



Oh and Thanks again Ernie...Outstanding!

Thanks for posting the picture and the nice complement. I added a copy for my collection. I sure would love to visit your little corner of the world someday. I hear wonderful things from riders that have been there.
Look me up if you ever find yourself near Dakota Minnesota. 2HE

Ernie,

Just received my new bash plate.....WOW, that thing puts the stock unit to shame. I will say that the photo's listed here & on your site just do not show the detail & quality of the actual unit!

Thanks for getting it to me so fast. Great service!

Bill

GS skidplates

Thank you for the complement Bill. I make the skidplates myself start to finish so the complements are a bit more personal than your average accessory sale. It keeps me motovated for more future projects.
Thanks again. 2HE

Also a quick note to let Slade know that his skidplate set will go out via the USPS tomorrow morning. Thanks and enjoy the skidplates. Ernie

Hi Ernie
I got my skidplates and fatfoot in the mail last night and must say they are almost to nice to install on the bottom of a bike.
Thanks
Slade

Got my skid plates from Ernie and they are just as sweet as everyone says. Also found my oem skid plate held on by 1 bolt. That's right ....1!!!

It's a new bike so I'm guessing that they didn't get the tq'ing they needed after the first service. Although if it fell off it would have been an even better reason to give Ernie a call.

Now can someone please tell me the size of those back threads under my scooter? I'm going to have to hit the hardware store for some nuts.

Ernie -- Coupla questions:

1. Will the skidplate fit a 12GS with Remus headers?
2. Do they use the existing mounts and hardware?

TIA, Pete

R1200GS skidplates

Hi Jonesky, Sent you a e-mail with the information you need.
Enjoy the skidplates. 2HE

Hi Boondox, I make a special skidplate for the Remus equiped GS. It is a touch wider to fit the extra large down tubes. It does use the factory mount points and I supply some replacement hardware for the front. You can e-mail me at dakotabeemer@hotmail.com to place a order. Ask for the "wide" skidplate set. I look forward to hearing from you.
2HE
