Craig,

Nice job!

The brackets I am going to do for the tube holder will work on your plate also.

The BAD is the wife said I have to wait for skid plate till christmas so I cant make brackets yet................

Great looking craftsmanship! You might want to extend the bottom all the way back to the footpegs to help protect the backside of the motor. The oil plug is a very vunerable area on the bottom of the motor.
I had the same thought, the overall shape is closely related to stock. Anyway I have an idea on how to deal with it, stay tuned.

Thanks guys for your encouraging comments.

Happy Thanksgiving
Craig

Finally finished my skid plate. As you can see by the pictures, I added some slots for cooling, an extension plate to protect the oil drain plug which can be removed for oil changes, and a few nips and tucks. Finished it off with crinkle black satin power coat. Looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Excellent work, CraigES! That thing is a work of art. The extension plate/oil drain plug protector is an excellent feature. Best-looking skid plate out there, I'd say!
