Default narcosis junky skidplate

Just finished bolting up Yann's skidplate. Got the aluminum one with the upgraded hardware kit. Fit was real good and it looks good. Really like that it doesn't bolt to the motor anywhere. Thanks Yann---excellent product and excellent service. Excellent packaging also I might add.

Way too much trouble ( for an old dinosaur like me ) to get pics posted--I did send one to Yann via email though.

I have one....the quality and construction of this skidplate is excellent, installation was fast & easy and it looks good on the bike. Yann is a great guy to deal with, he packs this thing very well for shipping (unwrapping it was harder than the install )
and shipping is fast. I would recomend the upgraded hardware kit for the extra $10 though.....
He also has a nice instructional video on you tube......

I just ordered an Aluminum skidplate kit from Yann with the upgraded hardware kit. I've heard nothing but good things about his skid plates, and he has been very responsive and helpful via email.
