I agree it would be proper to identify the maker of the skid plate and warn other members here. The ARE other members here with that same skid plate.

There have been other warnings about this maker in past on different subjects, but every once in a while a new person (or at least low post count username) makes a post to bring attention to his products.

At a minimum please give the maker some feedback.

I have sent the seller pictures and feedback. Here is a link to this product:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Steel-SkidP...72.m2749.l2649

Now I was fortunate that I often practice in a parking lot. If this was on the road it could have caused an accident. When the fender was pinned until it chunk snapped it had the steering pinned. I'm picturing on the road getting on the breaks to avoid something, having the fender get stuck on the plate and not being able to turn the bars.......

Upgrade your fork springs too, they appear to be too soft.

That is my next mod. I'm actually going to go the Traxxion route front and back.

Note on the seller. I had a full refund this morning from them. So good seller bad product.
