Who makes the best skid plate for a 690 enduro? Thanks for your opinion!!!
The KTM hard parts plate is made out of tin foil. The Renazco plate was designed and built by a friend and I here in VT, I still have the prototype
Does anyone still have one on their 690? Curious to know how they held up..
Tin foil, I see ...
The GiT bashplate, as it also protects the brake cylinder
The Flatland bash plate (http://flatlandracing.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=FR&Product_Code=24-46) offers good coverage, is easy to install, and well priced.
I have one from Rally Raid:

Does anyone know if you can get a couple of spare tubes in the GIT or Rally Raid skid plate? Looks like the RR has more potential for this as you can fit a water carrier.
Would save a bit of space in my bum bag
+5, looks the best too, and best value for money
SOLD - you guys convinced me, I just ordered one.
I fitted a couple of 1/2" radiator hose sleeves in the rear slip in mounts of the flatland skid plate to prevent vibration and noise.
The black is noise deadening, but In hiensight i don't think that was really necessary
The one I got new a few weeks ago came with a large strip of something resembling tar paper stuck to the inside. I've noticed no vibration noise. Must be working OK.
I like your use of hose for the rear mounts. I'll look to upgrading to that sometime in the future. The existing rubber bushings seem light.
I've got a Meca skidplate, which I can't seem to keep the bolts on. I keep breaking the bolts. At the moment I have a grout application spong between the bashplate and motor, hoping this will keep the bolts from breaking.... what a pita!:huh not the bash plate but the design of the mounting of it...
The left mounting bolt on my Flatland plate seems to come loose after a time (3 - 4 hrs?). I am going to drill out the frame mounting tabs and install longer bolts with a nyloc nuts to hold it.
