I don't think that is the issue, but it's worth a shot.
Did you do the air screw adjustment and the throttle body sync?

I don't know about the Yamaha crash bar but the Altrider crash bar worked fine for me.

Personally I use Altrider sidebars.
Hi Fingerakes, combine both Yamaha lower engine protection and Altrider and you have the best of both. Send the upper Yamaha protection to Pluric for his kids. Regarding sump protection you might try the Krauser which is not bolted to the sump and make a front end mod to grab the guard on the two upper bolts that hold the engine.
Cheers,
Roberto

Way back when even before the original reflash. In T mode throttle roll on is smooth as
can be, just wimpy on power. Switch to S mode and the inner beast comes out. Just that
it's very throttle sensitive to minor input.

However it seems like most people choose aftermarket stuff like Altrider, SW-motech, and others. Is there anything wrong per se with Yamaha accessories or is it all down to preference? I want quality protection but don't care about being able to say "yeah, I spent $700 on this sweet aftermarket skid plate" When it does the same as anything else! Input appreciated from an ADV bike noob :-)

Lots of good suggestions here and it's ultimately dependant on your use. As others have found though, the Yam stone deflector can result in cracked crankcases if it takes a decent hit.

I have recently gone through a similar process and ended up with AltRider bars and a Hepco Becker plate, plus some other odds and ends. Details are in the link in my sig FWIW.

Roberto,

Do you have more info/pics of that Krauser skid plate? It looks pretty cool and I don't think there is much info about them on here.

If you are looking for a combo set up, skid plate and crash bars, the Rumbux setup is pretty tough. Just remember, with almost all of the skid plates, there may be a reduction in cornering clearance.

Trust you to take a bad thing and make it worse.

I think your Rover has less total body work.

Thumb ACD skid plate

I installed the ACD skid plate last night. Easy to install and looks great. We'll wait a bit to test it

I've petitioned for black to be added to the color of the rainbow. Waiting for Skittles reply.
