Just finished installing my new MSR skid plate to my new DR650 Here's a "Head's up" to anyone who hasn't installed one yet...the skid plate needs to sit a bit further back than you think it should. If your drain plug isn't COMPLETELY accessible through the hole in the plate, then you're too far forward. Also, it is possible for the ends of the rear mounting bolts to make contact with the engine casing if not centered properly. There is an indent/channel that runs across the case from one side to the other...THIS is where the REAR mounting bolts should go, so the the protruding ends are safely in this channel and away from the engine casing. When the rear mounting-bolt ends are located this channel, the oil drain-plug should be easily accessible! Good luck...it took me a few tries, but I got it! Now...for that all important TEST DRIVE!
