I would like to thank Rick for my new skid plate. With only a few days before my trip up north, Rick said i could pick it up at a prearranged location. This worked out perfectly. The install was quick and easy, even on the road. Rick said all i needed was a commom screwdriver and a 10 mm wrench.

Here are a couple of pics of the install.
Plate, clamps, tools. I like low tech that works well!

The finished product. The plate worked as it should and the hardware didn't loosen at all for the rest of my trip. Rick, thanks again.

Another Thumbs Up

Just a quick note to say thanks for a great product - fits perfectly and looks good; I have the clearcoated set on my white GSA-SE.

There's more.
A public thank you for the patience and good faith shown by kildala2000 during this deal, which was complicated by the hassle in getting the cash safely from the UK.
I wanted to support a fellow ADVRider and am glad I did. The service was first class.

Rick, the package finally arrived today.

I ripped it open as if it was Christmas morning, three pretty metal plates in pristine condition. Excellent and expeditious shipping, which is saying a lot for Canada Post, thanks so very much.

Pictures to follow once I get them on and a snugmug account....

Another Satisfied Customer

Just installed my rear rack extension and I'm most happy with the product. Plenty of places to hook on to for securing the load and still have the rear grab rail too. Customer service great as well. Thanks again... -Mike

Another happy customer here

Howdy All, I just got 2 skid plate sets off Rick and i gotta say that they really are top pieces of kit, well finished, strong and easy to install. And the service was great, it took less than a week to get them from Canada to Australia! If you havn't got a skid plate on your beast you should seriously consider these.
Thanks Rick

Thumb Another thumbs up ^

Just put on the skid plate set and rear rack that Rick made to fit nicely between my happy-trail bags. Rick even supplied a set of spacers to raise the rack to the same height as the top of my bags... making a flat surface between the bags.

One of my best add-ons.

Thumb Thanks for the comments

Hi JoyRide,

Thanks so much for the comments on the rack and the skid plates and I'm glad everything went well with the sizing of the rear rack. It's always a little difficult making things without having the bike to build and fit the items. Another happy customer. Here is the picture of the finished product.



If anyone is interested I still have product ready to go...
Just drop me a PM with your address and what you want and I'll have it out to you.

Ride Safe,
Rick

Then I found that the hit was so hard that it tore the wiring for the sensor clean out of the harness! Happened to be a yard sale nearby so I bought a lamp for .50 and re-wired the rig. Runs better now than it ever did. I have it for sale now.

Thats my story.

O, what a mess! If only I had one of these quality made plates in place, my life would have been a whole lot easier.

You know what I mean?
Push it 20 miles Glad I own a KLR i'd throw it into bushes and start walking .

My plate

This piece of hardware has obviously taken one for the team! I can't imagine not having one. Besides the gravel/rock protection it affords the undercarriage, it also aids in sliding the bike over trees, stumps, and large rocks. ( I've been seen riding really, really fast through some serious sh*t. ) If that's not enough, the manufacturer has contacted me to ensure my satisfaction with his product. My opinion, works as advertised, great customer service, five stars! FYI I also have the front engine guard (that's taken a few hits as well) and the mudflap extension.

Buy 'em now!

What is that kickstand extension made from?

I like the above picture of the rear rack for the adventure. I just stuck a fairly plain piece of aluminum on the back of mine and would like something nicer, better holes for attaching things. Do you have the diminsions of the rack you sell? Can you make them custom sized?
