1100GS center stand plate.
Received fast, mounted fast, good value.
I got my skid plate and front cover last week and put them on over the weekend. Great quality and the front plate and center stand cat protector combined were barely more $$ than the cheap plastic "fenda extenda" I was considering. Thanks for a couple of great products and excellent service. I hoping to be throwing some Maine rocks and mud at them real soon!
Just received a master cylinder cover for my 1150 ADV.
Can't say enough about the service given by Rick.
The part was well designed and the price was more than reasonable.
Rick insisted that I send no money until the part landed at my door and I was able to check the fit.
I normally can't leave things alone and in this case I decided to cheese-hole the plate. Please note that the holes in the next picture were made by me and not something that Rick does. Thanks for a great product Rick. Fite
Part as received from Kildala
Same part after slight modification.
I figured that with all the weight saved with those holes......
I could eat one more donut!
Rick.... might be a "meerican" thing.
Like I said... can't leave things alone!
I kinda like the "racer" look!
OBTW..... go ahead and crush my artistic creativity.
Suppress my sense of hidden genius.
Give me all the s#%t you want to about "bastardizing" an original Kildala masterpiece. No really..... keep it coming.
I can take it... makes me stronger and besides.... I kept all the material that made those holes.
No worries, they'll plug right back in.
Thanks again Rickster.
Nothin lighter than a hole eh Fite?
Rick, see what we have to put up with during the long Alaskan winters? He fiddles with EVERYTHING! Trouble is......Fites fiddlin always ends up producing that "one-off" look and enhanced functionality. PM me with a quote for the mud guards for my 1200ADV, thanks!
Oh yeah....the Donut thing.....the rest of the Pterodactyls are keeping Fite on a strict diet of herbs and spices only,.... no meat, no potatoes. Just our way of taking care of our buddy and keeping him from drilling something mechanically vital.
Got it Rick. Let me know if you've got em in stock.
hope you can see the detail of the punishment the plate took. Had the GS on some steep rocky trails. Plate performed great. I am impressed
Got my goodies today! Too bad I was out buying new stuff for the other bike. They look great laid up against where they belong. Tomorrow afternoon, the wrenches come out.
Well after getting the package, I was eager to see if all of it would fit. It did! The stuff looks sharp and strong. Makes my bike look solid. I installed the protection package, the side plate and the rear rack. I took my BMW top box off and will do a few trips with the rack instead. I think it looks better anyways without the box. Thanks rick.
BTW still waiting for your PP e-mail address...if you want to be paid...hahaha
I have the foot pad from last year. Is the fat foot actually a larger footprint (the one I have is the same size as stock, just thicker)?
PM'd you regarding an order.
Hi there Rick, thanks for the Skid Plate, I believe this is the third bike I've bought one of your skid plates for, they are simply great. Nice product and easy to install, and from experience I know they can take a beating and keep your dirty undercarriage intact.
Now, what else can I get for my new R1100GS!

Hey Rick, I think i may have asked this before, do you know if the Master Cylinder guard will go onto an 1100 gs? Hmmmm? Just because I like your stuff and want to plaster my bike with as much of it as possible.
Awesome Rick, good for you. Very professional looking.
By the way though, do you (or anyone) know if the master cylinder guard will fit on the 1100GS? I have an 1100GS. Not an 1150... but an 1100. They are cooler you know, the 1100's? They're sort of the Alternative GS now. It's like wearing a trench coat and high-tops. Anyway, I have two bolts in about the same place as what the cylinder guard looks to have. :) I am planning on going where no master cylinder has gone before and I want it to be safe.
Another wonderful upgrade. This extension makes the maximum use of the too small BMW piece and is actually quite a bit larger than the Touratech item. Thanks for another fine product.
Centerstand skid plate arrived today.
