Thumpertalk / Ricochet skid plate install xr650l

I got my TT plate. Instructions say to unintall factory engine guards. I thought I'd seen people on here say they didn't have to take the factory engine guards off the frame. Or am I mistaken?

I think you need the XRR skid plate if you want to keep the factory nerf bars. I'd just tossed mine. Slip some rubber pieces from an old tube between the skid plate and where it makes contact with the motorcycle to reduce the noise from vibrations. You can get some really loud harmonics if it gets a little loose.

It will install over your stock guard but is then farther away from the frame & motor it's meant to protect:busted:
