    This may be a stupid question but what the heck. Being so enclosed will it have an effect on the cooling of the lower part of the engine?

    These plates have been around for the KTM's for a while now and they've had that discussion and decided that it makes no difference but as Matt says a few holes may help if you're worried:clap:clap

    Love the looks of that. Just wondering about how long it took to make. I kinda want to make one for my DRZ400 in welding class.

    Once you have it all nutted out it takes a full day to get one ready around 8-10 hours from start to finish. Theres a lot of work that goes into building one and then theres the 3-4 days of mucking around to get to the final product making sure it fits with all the different pipes .

    Have fun with your build and dont forget to let us know how it went.

    Nice job!!! :clap

    So what's with the top plate with the two bolts on either side of the bash plate. Is it storage? Or just for extra strength?

    It looks really good and I always like to hear when a company is willing to make custom changes per customer needs (drilling vents, etc...). Best of luck with it.

    Yes it's storage. You can store tools or other things.

    In Australia it's the law that if you travel more than 4 hours from help you have to carry at least 1 pint of whisky with you.

    That way if you fall off, you can at least get drunk and forget you are going to die!

    Great product :evil

    Pan looks wide enough to make without toolboxes and fit a Tiger triple in there. Tiger guys always looking for a good bash plate, including me!

    I'm interested in the bash plate, was just wondering what the price would be? Also wondering about the possibility off locks on the storage compartments rather than nuts, but I'm sure I could do the mod myself.

    if the price is that secret - must be too much $$$ for me. Man, it is the great looking piece of kit though.
