Raises bars 13mm vs 20mm on standard submount, I think.

That AdventureSpec skidplate is the nicest looking, best finished, I have ever seen and it fits right up perfectly. But it resonates like a mofo even with a bit of rubber damping applied to the interior surface.

They all do that, especially when they're shaped like a bathtub. I've made a few and that's my results.

20mm for the rubber mounted sub mount.

I've only put a few miles on the bike with the AS skidplate, I haven't noticed the resonance.

I know with the I/T on the rear, I could stop every 10 miles and visibly see the difference in wear when on pavement. It was excellent on dirt surfaces, but got a bit "lively" on wet rocks. I think I even did a couple of unintentional "whips".

Not trying to be a wise guy, but trade those crash bars for a proper skid plate.

New problem with my 2012 690R. It has about 2800 miles. Cold start up in the morning my low oil pressure light stays on. I shut it off and flip the key back and forth and re-fire her. Light stays on but goes out if I raise the RPM. Then I shut it off again and flip the key back and forth. I fire it up and all is good.

The site gage has oil. Seems like it might be the instrument, but then if I raise the RPM the light goes out! That seems like oil pressure.

My old KTM 950 did something similar, but in that case, the oil light flashed with pump pulsing. It went away as soon as the oil warmed.

I can take it to the dealer for warranty, but he's 90 minutes away. Thoughts?

Other than this thing that started last week, the bike has been great. The motor smoothed out to. After about 10 minutes on the freeway at 67mph, the ECU must adjust something because the bar vibes go away. It was always smooth above 73mph and below 63.
