Ravetech Mini Skid Plate

I'd decided on this skid plate and went to order it, but changed my mind when I saw $33 shipping on an $90 part. I've ordered stuff from China and Thailand before and never paid that much. Is there another alternative that is similar? I want to keep the OEM plastic engine cover. Thanks

International shipping is killer. One of the best things that could be done to improve international commerce is to reduce international postage.

This is how you and I get to pay for these tarrifs - Through the increased cost of shipping from foreign
markets.

I went ahead and bit the bullet and paid the shipping. I think I'll like the Ravtech plate even though its not real heavy duty. At least if I don't like it, I haven't spent very much. I'm not going to do a lot of single track.

If you don't like it, PM me and I'd be interested in taking it off your hands.

It's international airmailed.... I seen shipping prices for airmail domestic that much for something that heavy, the only downfall is it still has to go through customs that's where it'll spend most it's time.
