Kind of has a steampunk ethos to it, don't you agree?
If that AXP came in chestnut, you'd be spot on. But it sure is a peek behind the dystopian curtain beyond which KTM's future lies.
@chrisparks is that orange AXP V1 or V2? If Xavier hasn't responded, what about reaching out through social media? You should be in a V2 buddy. That may hold and flex with the best but structural integrity is degraded, and what lies behind those planes may be at risk.
I’m not say your incompetent, just trying to figure this out since I have it as my skid plate and you could be a resource to figure it out.
Any pics of where the plate bolts up underneath and in front?
Xavier has a 100% response rate from the posts I have read here and on FB, so I think you have to assume he did not see your emails. Does anyone have his inmate handle handy? That will most likely get his response here, don't you think?
I think it’s @Xav-AXP
I have the BDCW bash plate (actually 3, one for the 1190, 500 and 790) and very happy with all of them.
On the subject of the BDCW bash plate and the trail stand, they go perfectly together, here's a pic of both of them in use a few days ago.
Thanks for showing a repair/action photo. We don't often see these as everyone is busy trying to get rolling again and it's not time for a photo. Glad to see our products being used in the field!
Thanks also for being a repeat offender/customer

For Better or for Worse for some reason the group I ride with first thing they do is ask if you're okay but no matter the response the next thing they do is take a picture. Unfortunately even if there are broken bones involved, lol.
That’s standard practice with my group.
I’d go so far as to say that this is mandatory.
5 cracked ribs, ankle broken in two places...
Same here. Our group always tries to ask "you ok" before laughing and pulling out a camera

"911, what is your emergency?"
"Hurry, it's Dan's friend .. I think he has a busted gut"
Just because it pertains to the participants in this discussion...
The cause of the accident was a Black Dog.
Where do I have to go in this thread for skid plate info
Roughly 8 posts back.
So I checked my adventure tech setup to see if it moved after my recent trail nap.
Cannot confirm but it is somewhat closer on the nap side,
Heading out tomorrow. Likely will test the setup again and will pay closer attention.
I sent them pictures as requested and got the following reply:
"Thanks for the photos. The first one shows a severe impact. You must have hit something pretty hard to shift that bracket! Even when I rolled the bike off that hill and the bike landed on that rock slab surface, no such damage occurred. This is why we drop test our crash bars. We have a good understanding of what impact will do light or heavy damage to the crash bars."
Here is the first photo, I assume this is the photo he is referring to. It's a picture of the crash bars without the skid plate mounted.
Another view of it.
The impacts were, as stated previously, very minimal at less than 5 miles per hour (actually barely moving) and occurred in grass and in mud. I am glad I noticed it before it contacted my fuel pump. Needless to say that was $500 down the drain. I have learned my lesson and put them on......
I think mine is really close if not already touching the rubber spacer from the factory, that area isn’t as concerning as up closer to the fuel pump. I’ll have to go back and look at your other pictures but I didn’t think the bars looked like they took a big impact.
