Home-made RM 65 skidplate

Recommended Posts

Here are the pictures. I had this aluminum diamondplate laying around the garage, I didn't even have to cut it to size :) . It was pre-bent in the direction shown, otherwise I would've put the smooth side down. All I did was put a hole for the drainplug & 4 slots for the hoseclamps to fit thru. After tightening, I just trimmed the end of the hoseclamps. They're cheap, so it isn't a big deal if I have to install a new one(s) after removal :D. Quick & free! Oh yeah, I also placed a thin strip of rubber between the plate adn the frame to keep down any funky vibrations. I was thinking I may need foam to dampen noise (my xr was REALLY bad), but it isn't even noticable riding.

NICE!!!

Dylan and I got to work on his cutting board plate last night, I extended it on the water pump and stator cover corners so here is some protection there, have heated and bent it along the frame.

Next step is mounting it and shaping it around the water pump and stator a little more

can't wait to see pics of yours matt!

I would've made this one fancier had this one not been so good a fit already :)

nothing wrong with yours - if that's what I had kickin around - it would be mine too, but I had nothing so I needed a good and cheap start - so far 7 bucks - 6 for the board and 1 for the p clamps - the bolts I already had - I'm gone for 5 days - hopefully finish it upon my return!
