Plastic/Composite skid plate

Who makes a composite skid plate for the '12 Wee? Link would be fantastic.

Hyde Racing was listed when I asked the same question. I ended up going aluminum though. Got the tourarech version. This is the link to Hyde --> http://www.hyderacing.com/store/adve...suzuki/650.htm

I have been quite pleased with my Hyde unit. Lightweight, easy to install, robust and fits like a glove.

Ordered one tonight after reviewing some of the others. The Hyde will take a good hit and for what I do, mostly riding fire trails, will be fine. I'm taking a trip to the UP in Michigan in a few weeks to ride some of the trails and will let you know how it holds up. Thanks for pointing this one out.
