$309 actually, plus shipping. So I'm a bad guesser of shipping charges and a lousy mathematician... Nope, won't do it. Not when I can build one. Ladies and Germs, the Stretchatec Skid Plate... Since I don't have access to metal-stamping machines and presses, I had to weld it all together from flat sheet. Each facet is a piece of 1/8-inch sheet aluminum, individually fitted and welded front and back. The skidplate itself was welded with .030 3034 aluminum wire in a MIG machine with 100% argon shielding gas. The thickness of the welds gave me enough material at the edges and corners to grind and sand until each corner was nicely rounded. Then I sanded it with 80-grit paper on a dual-action air sander. The frame is 3/4-inch steel square tubing. Welding was done with the MIG welder using .023 solid steel wire and 75/25 Argon/CO2. The rear mount sandwiches the centerstand mounts between the skidplate frame mounts and the bike frame. Come winter I'll take it apart and have it powder-coated. Detail showing the modified Touratec crash bars. I lengthened the crossbar mounting tabs so that I could use two bolts per side, instead of just one. This keeps the crossbar from rotating up and down. Then I welded a skidplate mounting tab onto the Touratec crossbar. It has paid for itself already. I hadn't done any trails at all on this bike, knowing from my Alaska ride (on a rental) how much damage loose rocks can cause. The skidplate on the Alaska rental saved the exhaust and cases numerous times, so I knew I would need a skidplate on the Tigger before I did any serious off-roading. I met WIDGIN and TigerRider for some trail riding this past weekend, and I lost count of the number of times I heard big rocks ricocheting off my new skid plate. There are a couple good gouges visible in the above photos.
