Bumot Skid Plate
I thought I'd share an early look the new Bumot's new skid plate that Assen has just released.
We've got a fair bit of choice now, Bumot, Outback Motortek and BB ones are all my favourite for how I use my bike.
I like the low weight from the 4mm alloy, it looks and feels like it will take a big thump and scrape n slide over rocks and logs easily. The mounting points are tough and while it does utilise the OEM front mounting points, the hardware and pickup points along the base plate appear to do a lot of the work.
I also like how narrow it is whilst still protecting the engine cases, I do a bit of rocky fire trails so I am pretty comfortable now that I won't rip my engine apart.
I'm confident they'll work with a range of crash bars, and I've just ordered some outback motortek ones. if anyone wants and detailed measurements to check clearance just ask.
