Bash plate / center stand

I have a 2013 wee and want to know a good center stand and bash plate to put on it. Preferably from the same manufacturer. I'm also in the need for hand guards. Any help would be appreciated as I'm getting ready for a three week adventure.

I had my dealer install the Suzuki center stand and hand guards on my 2012. The center stand works well and the hand guards too but I only street ride so I'm not really stressing the hand guards much. I don't have a bash plate but I've been thinking about the Weld86 Skid Plate.

I bought a 2013 one week ago.

I have the AltRider system. Crash bars, skid plate and sliders. It all works together.

The nice thing about the skid plate is it does not mount to the engine. It has an added bracket that goes between the side stand & muffler mount. Then the front mounts to the crash bars.
Engine has nothing attached to it so the skid plate can take a beating and not shock the motor.

You can change oil without removing them.

No center stand as I have lowering links.

(I may be a little biased because they are a local Seattle company near my dealer. And all local, American made! Right here in Seattle. )
