Has anyone else noticed significant changes in fuel economy after installing an aftermarket skid plate? I installed the Outback Motortek Africa Twin Combo Pack I a few weeks ago and have noticed a significant decrease in gas mileage while riding at highway speed. I love the protection offered by the crash protection and skid plate; however, I'm wondering if the skid plate is causing more drag than other brands. I had crash protection on my Triumph Tiger (but no skid plate) and never noticed any changes in fuel efficiency. My guess is that the shape of the skid plate is causing the noticable drag. You can check out the skid plate here:
