Exclamation New Vee 2 Enduro Guardian Skid Plate Available!

I've been waiting for this option to hit the market. This puppy looks solid with a nice tight fit. Steel and mounts to frame and OEM crash bar (not engine cases).

Please check it out including Yann's video install. No skid plate experience here, so I'm very interested in your comments on this one. Price looks reasonable at $210. Also interested in comments on the optional highway pegs that mount to the skid plate.

What do you guys think?

Looks good to me. If I didn't already have a Happy Trail one I would have got this but I do love my Happy Trail. It's as solid as they come.

Happy Trail one is a little cheaper and very solid, but this one looks good too.

The Enduro Guardian Highway bar is excellent.

It's really hard for me to get past how much Yahn looks like my oldest son! They could be brothers.

Aside from that it seems like a really good option (possibly the best yet) for the guys who do serious off road work with their Vee2. And it is priced better than the other full length skid pans out there. Looks like a winner.

Can you tell if this one is a closer fit than the Happy trails? I'm concerned the clearance on the V2 is already a bit low for anything more than a fire road.

Not sure. I've seen the HT on a Vee 2 and only the video on the EG plate. The EG seems to hug pretty tight all around. I thought the HT plate looked a bit oversized as it seemed to flair out needlessly on the sides. Underbelly is probably about the same on both. I'll be getting the Enduro Guardian skid plate and maybe the highway peg accessory sometime this riding season.
