    Rem has one (RideOnAdv) in WhiteHorse, Yukon. I saw it, thought I took some pictures. Anyway it is built with a jig, so you can order and install yourself. Very strong looking and 1/4" thick. Solid solid. It will fit over the crashbar mounts or OEM mount like I have. If I did not have the H&B I might get one, but I am very happy with the ease of removal and protection I have.

    Got my RideonADV plate yesterday. I won't install it until the crash bars come in, so I'll post up some more later...

    Initial impressions: Damn, this thing is built like a tank!

    Excellent beer for scale:

    Now for the big question, weight. From my not legal for trade, non scientific, uncalibrated scale:

    It's thick, about 1/4 inch:

    Jaxon, ~TABASCO~ on ADV and the Tenere forum, was great to work with. His enthusiasm for motorcycles in general and the Tenere in particular shows in every phone call and email. Just don't expect to order it on a Monday morning and get it for your weekend trip as it is made to order:deal.

    I'll add some pictures with the ground clearance once I get it mounted.

    Thanks! I think this is more or less the same we've got in the list, please check it.
    Is the weight with the hardware? :ear
    Your bike is going to look like a panzer, it looks really strong!!! :clap

    The specs are what is on the list. The weight is with the rear mounting bracket (also 1/4" aluminum) but without any bolts. The bolts Jaxon provides replace stock bolts, so I left them out.

    Keep in mind that depending on how the suspension is set up on a particular bike these "clearance" measurements wont be the same or accurate.. Depending on sag, fuel capacity, extra accessories added to the bike, Etc... Someone could be off 1/2" or more with soft suspension and a full tank when measuring...

    They are hand made for sure. We do offer many options that the customers can choose. Our "standard" plate starts off the same each time for the ST. We do have two jigs we use for these plates. Here are a few other features...

    - Change the oil and the filter with the plate left on the bike
    - The entire construction is 1/4" (6mm) billet aluminum
    - Frame mount (frame to frame) does not touch the motor
    - Protects the fallowing: bottom of engine / headers / rubber water hose / metal water hose / water pump / generator cover / oil filter / 02 sensors / exhaust cat / right and left side (front of) engine cases
    - Powder coat color of your choice
    - We can add high way pegs to the unit
    - LIFE TIME WARRANTY

    Jaumev - you might want to correct the spelling of RideonADV in each category in post #1 of this thread, now that we are getting details on this plate. It has confused at least one inmate.

    OK. :thumb


    That's why we said this in the first post:

    GROUND CLEARANCE: Every bike is set up differently with different gear and pre-load settings, etc. So lets have the measurement on the center stand, from a level concrete floor to the skid plate lowest point.

    Tabasco, can you gives us the RideonADV skid plate ground clearance in this conditions?.
    Many thanks!

    Ups, sorry! …. done! :shog

    Unfortunately August is a black hole in Spain: everybody is in holidays.
    They promise me it must be ready to try this week and ready to production end of September…. We’ll see… :lurk

    Well I'm ready to buy a skid plate, but I can't freaking make a decision. This is extremely aggravating.

    Has anyone actually caused engine damage with the plates that mount to the large mount on the front of the motor? Has there been damage reported with the Hepco Becker plate?

    I will be bottoming out. I will be taking it places it probably shouldn't go. It's going to get used and abused.

    It's between three.

    I'd bite the bullet and get a Rumbux right now... but whether they are being imported into the USA anymore is now in question. It seems the initial rush is over and now the importer can't muster enough interest to get a shipment together. That's the impression I get at least. I need the crash bars too, so with that in mind, the price of the whole rumbux setup is actually very fair.

    Jaxons plate is absolutely fricken nice. Without a doubt the beefiest, most hardcore skid plate available. But you've got to pay to play, and this plate is double the cost of my third in line.

    Which leads us to the Hepco plate. The price is fair. The coverage looks good. But they took the cheap/easy way out on the front mount... bastards... and now I would run the risk of tearing a gaping hole in my motor when I go to actually use the plate.

    If I don't/can't go Rumbux, I foresee going with the SW Motech crash bars.


    Thoughts?

    In that case I think you must go to Rumbux or Jaxon's.
    But next week I'm going to have the new development of ACD skid plate. Fully frame mounted.
    This is what I have now, a prototype from ACD. Next week they are going to give me a new development. If it works they are going to start the production this month.
    I’m got the feeling the price is going to be competitive.

    Had my Altrider out for the first time yesterday (what a ride!!!:D) Had some good bottom hits
    and never pulled over to check the sump like I would have with the Yamaha plate.

    We were in a fair amount of mud so I thought that was why my sidestand was so hard to put
    down later in the day. Turns out the rear mount on the Altrider crushes outward when hit.
    The mount then rubbed on the sidestand. I had to kick it to get it down.

    If you look close you can see the paint stress on either side of the slot.

    [​IMG]

    A little crow bar attitude adjustment and the sidestand was happy again.

    The good news is you can get the factory oil filter off with out moving the bash plate.
    The bad news is it creates a quite an oil spill to get it out. That and the drain plug
    access holes are tight 12mm swivel socket is is best in front and then the oil
    drains into the pan. I made quite the mess between the filter and draining.

    My talented assistant was playing a drum solo on my sports car with the screwdrivers.
    I took this photo as forensic evidence she is alive and fine. She can get away with murder,
    I cannot.:wink::D

    Jumping the bike, perhaps?!? I bent the middle of the rear mount on mine, but did not collapse it even though I broke almost all the welds on the skid.

    Na, no real jumps. A lot of dips and some rocks. I felt it hit several times. Bent the rear wheel
    again too.
