    Someone actually wanted the garbage OEM skid off my 701 enough to pay the freight for me to send it to them.

    8mm PE with those metal supports can take any jack to lift the bike - I'm using ktm enduro lift with stock skid plate and it's just fine..

    Does anyone know weight for Rade's carbon skid&tank plates?

    Shot from Axp teaser, looks strong enough for any rock, wood stump or anything you can find to use as center stand..

    Got my Black Dog Skid plate yesterday and I’m really happy with it. The stock one is all bent and dented to shit after the 1700 miles I’ve got on my bike, not to mention my header had already taken a hit on the right side where the stock skid took a hit and got dented in. I feel the extra weight is well worth it for this level of protection. With the rubber blocks between the engine case and the plate combine with the rear mounting points being attached to the center stand bracket I also feel much more confident lifting the bike on a jack from under the skid plate now.

    The problem in the past with over beefy skid plates with no give is that they have no give....

    The HDPE will flex and absorb some shock....

    I tried to search for about 5 minutes before I realized it's rather just ask here.

    What's the best mounting bracket for the little GPS spot at the top of the gauge cluster? I would like to mount a quad lock up there, possible with a ram mount. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Best? :dunno

    But the 3D printed mount plus this RAM compatible ball socket [amazon link] will let you use anything with a RAM compatible ball to hold your GPS/whatever.

    I agree, aside from this rib supports that (in the case of the left side) transmit any impact right to the screen cavities. All these skidplates so far give me the willies. there's a real long span from the forward mounts to the pegs...
    needless to say, I'll continue to pick my lines as wisely as possible.

    You might have something there since the interior of the chamber is blackened with unburned fuel. I suspect it does double duty. One is as an exhaust resonance chamber to amplify low rev torque and the second is to cool the exhaust gases and reduce their pressures before they escape through the muffler.

    It seems ingenious to me.

    I'm running this with a Garmin Montana and love it. Very stable and viewing angle is spot on!

    Nice, it has threaded holes you could use for a security tether.

    That looks very nice, but the price is out for me.

    Was wondering what those holes were for:.


    Picked one up and I’m happy w it. It is pricey but I figure over the long *haul the price becomes a wash



    this is at least what I tell myself
