    I have a yamaha FJ09. Most fun bike I ever owned. Mostly I ride the twisties which I love most. But, living in Mexico there's bound to be an offroad stretch and/or very bad pavement in most rides I do. Had the pipes and engine touch the ground many times already. So far no damage but want to add a skid plate to prevent any damage in the future.

    I've looked around, but all the standard / big name brands don't have a skid plate that fits with the Acra exhaust. Before I go custom I wanted to ask if you know any that will fit.

    So far I've looked into:
    - Hingdonion
    - T-Rex
    - SW-Motech

    I have the big triple too. Never touched the sump down, but have the short mazda drain plug (2016 model before they moved the plug to the side).
    Have you looked at the ones on ebay ? eg: https://www.ebay.com/itm/183914515580
    I have no idea if they would clear an Acrapovic, but they maybe modifiable.
    Let us know how you go..
