Question skid plate and engine guards compatibilty

Sooooo. I bought a brand new 2016 KLR 650 Camo. I got a touratech skid plate on it and I am wanting to put Tusk Engine Guards on it. Does anybody know if these two parts are compatible?? I'm worried the skid plate isn't going to let me use these guards...

I'm not familiar with the Touratech skid plate, but the Tusk engine guards worked with my Ricochet skid plate, although I had to loosen the skid plate to get the motor mount bolts inserted.

Looking at the pictures of the Touratech here Skid Plate Engine Guard, Kawasaki KLR 650, 2008-on - Touratech-USA, it looks taller than the Ricochet. If the side plate covers up the motor mounts, then the Tusk bars probably won't work with that skid plate.

Give the guys at Rocky Mountain ATV (they make the Tusk products) a call and ask to be sure.

If not, maybe the SW-Motech bars will work. Link:
