I have (had) a Touratech bash plate mounted to my 650. On a moderate ride yesterday, all four rubber mounting points broke leaving me with a flapping piece of aluminum. After looking at how the mounting points work I can see why it failed so easy. Metal studs are secured about 1/4 inch into each side of a 3/4 inch piece of rubber. The bolt doesnt go all the way through the rubber. So, this leaves me needing a more functional bash plate or mounting system. What are people using and what do you think of them? It there any reason to keep the rubber mounting points? Would aluminum spacers of the same thickness be detrimental? What about rubber mounting points that a bolt goes all the way through?
