    I bought the BlackDog skid plate. Stellar piece, I can't compete with it. I'm building stuff that does not exist from anyone else. I did do my own GPS bracket, but want to have another go at it as its not as good as it could be.

    Nope. :-)

    I would buy one of those if you sold them. That is very clever!

    As there are a few aftermarket items available now and the BMW alternative, it's not something I'm interested in pursuing to build to sell. I can do one offs for myself and not worry about the time spent on it, but doing them for profit is not my game.

    I may consider doing up a few more now that I have the process sorted. The materials would be minimal in cost and the time involved would be far less than for the first one since all the tooling is made now. I am also considering another idea for production of this item if there is enough interest which would involve sourcing out the moulding if the cost can be reasonable.

    OK, project two is done. The pattern in case you don't recognize it is for Molle attachment.

    These are mounting plates to fit the crashg bars for some small bags. I went with some smaller sized bags, but the panels will easily accomodate larger ones should I ever wish to carry more stuff in them.

    I initially made the two side symetrical, then when I went to put the right side on, realized the bars are a bit different side to side. I had to do a bit of trimming on it to fit. fortunately my error was in my favour. Whew!

    Very Nice!
    Is your mill CNC or did you lay out the grid and cut it manually?

    My mill is manual, but I do have a DRO on it which helps a lot.

    FYI ordered another brand skid plate, sent it back due complicated assembly needed with lower crash bars. Got the Black Dog Skid plate and center stand plate, very pleased,

    Has anyone gone down 1 tooth on the CS sprocket? Majority of my riding on my 850 GSA is off road, did that on my F800 and I think it made a nice difference, not so worried about higher revs on the little highway riding I do

    In the last couple of weeks I have installed Barkbuster Storm hand guards, Givi pannier racks and Givi rear rack and topcase mount. Next nice day will add on Hepco Becker tank and engine guards with a Black Dog skidplate. After this is finished, the last task will be the addition of a fuse box and accessory lights.

    I've been looking into producing a few of them. I should be able to make them up for a pretty reasonable cost, probably around $20 Cdn which would factor in something for my time, the issue looks like the shipping which will be almost as much as the item. I need to find some sort of discounted shipping option. the issue is the size of the package, the weight is insignificant. I'm open to ideas and feedback from those interested.

    I'd pay $40CDN for it, including shipping. Hell, you could license it to Touratech and they'll charge us $100 for it!

    I’m in, if shipping proves a major obstacle we’ll be coming through the area headed to Alaska in June. PM me how you’d prefer payment.
