What skid plate fits the Delkevic exhaust?

Hey! I just installed the Delkevic exhaust and am loving the sound, but was wondering what skid plate will fit with this system installed. The previous owner had a completely custom system (along with ugly welds) that won't fit anymore and weighs over 25 pounds. I'd rather not leave my oil filter too exposed, but I don't need anything too crazy as I don't do major off-roading.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Y'all have been lifesavers on multiple occasions.

edit. My bike is an 05' DL650

Hello, Did you (or anyone else?) ever find a skid plate that would fit with the Delkevic exhaust? I bought a used 2007 DL650 recently and would like to put on a skid plate. I tried one so far but the Delkevic exhaust pipe is *lower* than the stock at the back of the plate so it couldn't fit.

Also interested to hear about this. I have an AMS skid plate that is nice and beefy but I've read it does not work with delkevic exhausts.
