Stainless can crack with vibration.
I managed to crack a 6mm thick stainless bracket riding on a corrugated road earlier this year.

I am luck so far. At least every material can crack by vibration. I wouldn't be so nervous about that!

I powdered myblack!

I queried the touratech bash plate weight on the Australian site and they answered back that it weighs 4.24 kilos... Not that it makes that much of a difference so low on the 1190, but I am concerned in adding more weight to an already heavy bike...

How heavy are the other bash plates available, the original ktm one for example?

This looks really good! Where did you find the orange plate, all I see for the KTM hardparts is bare aluminum?

It's described as aluminium on Touratech's site:

The KTM 1190's Expedition Skid Plate offers maximum protection with its heavy gauge 4mm aluminum construction engineered with corrugated channels for maximum strength and stiffness.

I have fully tested the KTM plate on the Arizona rocks 2 up with bags adn will tell you wholeheartedly that it will take some abuse and protect the bike! It integrates really well with the crash guards and goes way back to protect the exhaust underneath.

Sorry, small joke. It's Orange Blaze plasti-dip, several coats. Came out pretty well. Not a perfect match, but close enough for me for now. I may get it powdercoated orange later.
