    Title says it all. The Remus headers are bigger than stock, and don't fit with the factory skid plate. What DOES work?

    Thanks in advance, Kip

    I believe the Black Dog Cycle Works skid plate will fit.

    Black Dog fits great. My bike has a Remus and Black Dog skid plate. Both fine products that work as advertised, made from good material, very good fitment. I have a 2009 F800GS.

    I can tell you what skid plate won't fit, an Altrider. :0 The Remus headers hit it where it passes by the brake lever. I'll sell it, rather than mutilate the Altrider; I've got a Black Dog on order. The Altrider engine guard clears, so that's good. Makes an expensive upgrade, a little more expensive! :) Will report back on the fit of the BDCW, when it arrives.

    Yep, I have Remus headers and the BDCW skid plate on my bike and it fits without any issues. A very well made, strong skid plate. I am not a fan of the looks of it, it is a big, heavy unit, but it fits well and will take a real beating.

    BDCW skid plate arrived today, and fit great! No issues with clearing the Remus header. Very high quality, and very heavy duty!

    Did I lose out on eBay to you? Did you just buy the Remus headers and the muffler few months back on eBay?

    I got rid of the F800GSA almost a year ago...hated it the whole year I had it.

    Altrider fits without too much mod. Will get around to photos at some point
