    Thanks, I am looking for a new front to replace my Pirelli Scorpion Rally. It's done about 6,000 k's.

    How far do you get out of the GT723?

    Yes, but it would be very strong with all that extra bracing and mounting points.

    Might be a pain to take it off for oil filter change?

    From B&B offroad guys.

    So have got through the pre orders and have some Dakar plates available for sale.
    Here is some info .
    1) Looks like they will fit with most upper bars as long as they are not connected to lowers.

    2)Do not know what after market headers(if any)it will fit with.

    3)Takes around an hour to fit the first time as the pipes have to come off and some hardware installed.
    (this is only on initial install)after that it is a ten minute job.

    4) The plate needs to be removed for oil filter access,however there is sump drain ports for oil change without filter.

    5)Available polished@$635
    Black powdercoat@$655
    It is not our regular polymer as it is physicaly to big for our current set up.

    6)They are not on our site and wont be for a few weeks.
