Since delivery, VAT and import duties for any of these will cost me an arm and a leg (I'm in Europe), does anyone know if there's an euro manufacturer for skidplates that do not bolt onto the engine case (no swmotech and givi)?

I dont know about the Ravetech but I purchased the HT because it only takes 4 screws to dismount (easier for oil changes).

To those who have Givi bars and want a HT skidplate, I worked with Tim there on a solution for the front mount. I tested and gave him feedback on 4 prototypes. The final one should fit all bars.
I went with HT because it's the most HD of whats available. and super easy to remove for oil changes

Does anybody happen to know if the HT skid plate will work with Heed crashbars?
