Rick,
Is a f/c guard available for the 1150GS or is it only designed to work with the 1150GS Adventure?

Please sound off.
Most cats are made of a ceramic core. It's filled with specially coated (platinum?) honeycombed cells that are heated and react chemically with the exhaust. As you can imagine, this arrangement is pretty delicate, so it's easy to do damage to your cat without actually putting a hole in the skin. If you do it just right, you can clog up the exhaust with the broken ceramic bits causing bad things to happen to your engine.

FWIW,

ps -- I just took my cat conv off, which is actually more of a reason for a skid plate since a protruding rock will tend to catch on the pipe leading to the Staintune exhaust can.

I still have a few GS skid plates up for grabs.

Thanks,
Ride Safe,

Rick,
I figured that might be the case.
Any chance you have a f/c gaurd in development for the 1150GS non Adv?
I have seen something before that is an aluminum plate that mounts to the front cover with longer bolts and some standoff bushings. Drill some holes in it for cooling if needed, powder coat and I'll buy it.

Thanks,
Drake

Hi Rick
My compliments on the skid plate as well, hoping to bounce test it in about 30 days. I am also interested in the rack extension for the gs with BMW plastic bags. Let me know when you provide some details.
