2012 skid plate and HB crash bars
I have done a ton of searching here and not found much on point.
I have the Suzuki OEM plastic under cowl. It came with the bike. I recently mounted the Hepco Becker crash bars. I am now pondering a skid plate. I had one on all my thumper dual sports and they were a great idea.
I am unable to find a skid plate that either mounts with the HB bars, or at the very least, can be mounted with the HB bars in place. Just about all the pictures I have seen of mounted skid plates show them hanging off the bars in the front, but I have not yet seen any pictures showing one with the HB bars.
Does anyone have any suggestions? The optimum would be a skid plate that does not mount off the HB crash bars and does not require removal of the HB crash bars. The cowl would go away if I can find a good skid plate.
Thanks for any suggestions.
