Bumot Skid Plate

G'day
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.

Steve

Thanks for posting. That is a good unit. I like the protection for the Alternator cover on the left, which is the most vulnerable part of this motor.


The B&B item from Australia is equally good in that regard and a very robust item. However, my problem with both would be the close proximity of the front fender under full fork compression. Not a problem for those with the standard fender but I have a Fenda Extenda on mine and there would be a question mark over that proximity given that both protrude a little too far in front of the headers. The cutaway on both takes care of the standard fender.

Are these the production model or are they still in development? They look nice but no rubber frame mounts?

Don't threaten me with a good time!

The very first Frozen Grey skid plate from Bumot, very pleased, can't wait to get it fitted (also have the panniers to match) Thank-you to Assen at Bumot n Cliff at Adventure Bike Shop for all your help!

So did these not have rubber frame mounts and do we know about the clearance of the fender?

This is by far the best looking bash plate I've seen. Also reduces the need for lower crash bars. Will any of the upper crash bars work or with this in terms of mounting?

Steve,

Could I bother you to take pics of how the bash plate sits in relation to your feet? Does this interfere with the controls in any way?


Thanks!
