    Guard it Technology is the Adventure-Spec response to our customers requests for top quality bashplates sold at sensible prices. By using a thicker section and higher specification 4mm aircraft grade aluminum on the enduro guards and the same grade of high tech 3mm aluminium on our race guards we can ensure that externally the bashplate is hard enough to take bangs and knocks without deformation, but soft enough not to crack or split under extreme impacts. This means a quality product that will protect your bike and look good year after year.
    All bashplates are CNC profile cut, bent, and TIG welded on BOTH sides. There is no spot welding to any part of the plate externals. All our bashplates include either stainless steel or aluminium fitting kits and all come with top quality fasteners.
    Because we use bashplates as often as you do we know that cheap fiddly spacers that float around might allow the manufacturers an easy life where manufacturing tolerances are concerned, but make removing and replacing them a real pain. We dont believe in fiddly anything, or poor quality design, thats why Guard it Technology bashplates fit the bike first time everytime without fiddly bits, bending,or bashing with a hammer! They also protect all the parts of the bike that you would expect. Why design a bash plate that leaves your waterpump housing or oil cooler exposed? Nope, we dont know either!
    We dont believe in lead times of six weeks, or price without quality. All our plates are British engineered and made locally near our base in the North of England. In short they are the finest bashplates we could make sold to you at the cheapest price we could afford. Without question Guard it Technology bash plates are certified Adventure-Spec.

    These photos are of the preproduction plate while we were still finalising things. The production plate will be pretty much identical but generally tidied up........

    As you can see its a pretty substantial item and adds a bit of Rally bike attitude to the 800.... (link)

    A much better design than the Touratech bashplate for the F800GS..

    Be sure to bump this thread once the F800GS hits US shores, late in the year and certainly next year. :thumb

    We're getting a hell of a lot of orders and are having to ramp up production considerably, so placing an early order is a pretty good idea. As for the crashbars, we wont take orders until they're finished and we know what the price will be.

    Shipping to the US is going to be pricey, but we're working on a better solution........

    I can't tell but does your bashplate cover the cat converter in the rear or do you offer something to bolt onto the center stand? Also have you all found a cheaper solution for shipping to the us? Just curious

    I've not seen one in the flesh yet, but from the photos, it looks like there's a bit more of a gap between these and the exhaust pipes than there is with the BMW aluminimium plate. I know that there are problems fitting aftermarket headers with the BMW alu bash plate, but hopefully these will be more accomadating.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not any aftermarket exhaust headers fit with the GIT plate and if so, which ones?

    TIA.
