Hi Piotr

is your bike the manual or DCT version?

if it is the manual (like mine) then the skid plate should fit easily and will need just a bit of deformation on the back left fixing point (as you sit on the bike).

If it is the DCT, then things are much tougher, as I ma told by a friend that has installed the OM on his DCT ATAS. It took him a lot of work (heating and reshaping the plate) to fit it. I am not really aware of the details.

Sorry for opening a new thread on that, but there are so many threads on Crashbars and I could not find the info I need.

I had the Altrider system in my mind but today I found out that it is not compatible with the skid. I want to keep the OEM skid, though. I do not do dirt, so it is ok for me and I like the looks.

However, the OEM "accessories" bar is a joke as far as it concerns effectiveness and rigidity. So, I need a reliable crashbar system.

Does anybody know of a crashbar system that is compatible with the ATAS OEM skidplate?
