I tried a search on this but kept coming up with nothing. I couldn't find a skid plate that protected all of the water pump and the hose coming from it and all of the overflow tank so I built my own. It is fastened to the bike by the 4 bolts as the stock one was, comes up to the header and follows it around to cover the coolant tank and the water pump and hose. It looks great and works great as I live it Nova Scotia and ride in the woods as much as I can and I ride everyday. Nothing has injured the BRP through this Skid plate. The problem I have is it, the skid plate, acts like an amplifier and amplifies the engines internal sound and was wondering if anyone has experienced this. It even has rubber between the frame and plate. I need as much protection as I can get and was wondering if this is normal with other plates. I could use a 1" hole saw to cut some holes in the sides but will this take care of the problem. I don't want to do this if I will still have the sound. Any help would be great, Thanks Iggy.
