My Heed (on a 650) doesn't come near the crash bars. It isn't a hard core "bash" plate (like Yahn's Enduro Guardian), but more of a rock guard that mounts to bottom of the engine and scoops up about an 1-1/2" higher than the oil filter. It also goes back behind the kickstand switch. I'll post a picture later.
