Skidplates

Hi Gary, Glad to hear you are happy with the skidplates. I've been very busy making more for the upcoming rally season. Looks like I'll be at the Hiawatha rally, Soldiers Grove rally, Wisc Dells rally, Falling leaf rally, Pecatonica swap meet and the BMW national. Hope to see some pictures soon. Thanks Ernie

Thumb The maiden voyage with the skid plates

These were taken a few weeks ago, the morning after I got the plates in.

Centerstand detail


I couldn't be more pleased with the fit and finish. The guys I rode with should be ordering theirs soon.

Thanks Ernie

Skidplates

Thanks for posting the pictures guys. It's great to see the bike in it's natural habitat. By the way some skidplates are on the way to " Baja Joe". Hope to see some great Baja pics in the future. 2HE

Hey Ernie,

Just received the centerstand skid plate for my 1100 GS...very nice.

Keep me posted on your development of the engine skidplate for the 1100/1150 GS. You can put me down for one, just let me know how much it'll cost.

Thanks,
Mart-O

p.s. Win Twins!

fitting with remus header

has anyone fit one of ernie's engine plates with a remus header? mine doesn't want to fit.

i assumed the remus headers followed the same path as the oem pipes but it appears they are wider.

Yes...Just bend the sides out a little....no problem....you could take a couple of pieces of strap steel, angle iron, etc, clamp with c-clamps or vice grips and bend uniformly...I took the crude approach of using a rubber mallet. I like the "Ridden and Used" look. Worked fine.

I fit my Ernie's plate on my R1200GS, which has a full Remus setup. While the plate sides come close to the header pipes, they don't touch. At first, I thought I would have a problem, but it bolted up okay with no modification.

My only regret is that the front plate lip doesn't come up higher - I no longer have a cross-over pipe there! Due to the welds, I am not inclined to try to bend that front lip upwards.

Good luck!

I'm in the market for a f650GS engine skidplate that provides some degree of case protection. I'd really like to run my GS without the heavy tubular BMW engine bars but the stock skidplate doesn't provide much protection, especially for the cases. A small toolkit receptacle on the front would also be a nice touch.

New skidplate

Well, It might be a while before I can make a skidplate for the new X bike. I live near LaCrosse Wisconsin and we've never had a BMW dwealership so even seeing a Beemer in our area is rare. If a local X bike owner looks me up I'd sure like to take a crack at it. Ernie

R1200GS skidplates

Hey Carl, Your skidplates are on the way to Calgary AB. I sent them off USPS on the 11th. I would think they could show up any day now. Thanks Ernie

Hi Sonny, Congrats on the upgrade from the R1200GS to the adventure model. I got your payment and will get the centerstand skidplate over to the post office first thing in the morning. Thanks for the repeat business. Ernie
