Hay pluric, what kinds of bash plates are those? What did you hit to bash the 1st one? Was speed a factor or just big rocks,etc? thanks.

Precarious is right. The new set up is an Altrider. The old one was an OEM Yamaha. Not so much speed
on the big dents just some very rocky trails in Southern Utah. I could hear it more than feel it through the bike.

I did pull over and check the sump bolt after a couple of loud hits. All was well. After I found out the bike
keeps making me tests it's abilities (and mine) I thought I would get a frame mount set up. I've been so
happy with the Altrider rack I went with their bash plate. I can see filter changes being a bit more hassle.

Riding a big freeway overpass is a high altitude adventure if you are from Florida!


Nice photo though. I have a similar one framed because it got me on the ST and my son coming out of the previous curve with his Strom.

Pluric, you have to remove the Altrider bash plate to change oil? I have the Yamaha engine guards & don't like'm much. I've been looking at that Altrider bash plate & have none on my bike yet(won't use that sump mounted yamaha plate). Rode Nevada a week ago & worried about no plate but made it ok. The Altrider looks good. Thanks.

You don't have to remove it to change only the oil but you will have to remove it to change the oil filter

I did have to extend the built in cut to remove one of the plugs, I just couldn't remove the plug with any of my tools, couldn't get the ratchet with extender to line up with the plug, no big deal, just opened the cutout a little more

Yeah... this bikes are too heavy to ride in the sand. I remind the nightmare in it with the GSA... awful!!
In that trip I was regretting not to come back with the DRZ, riding in the dunes with the Suzuki was great!!
