sw motech skid plate / happy trails pegs combo?

One of the local dual sports stores sells the happy trails highway pegs that they say are designed for use with the adventure motostuff engine protector.

To be honest I like the looks of the sw motech skid plate better (the two-tone one) and would like to use it instead.

Does anybody have any experience with that combo? Any modifications required?

p.s. The bike came with the sw motech crash bars already on it so it is actually a little cheaper for me to go with the sw motech skid plate as well.

Yes, I have that set up along with givi crashbars. I did have to fabricate a simple bracket , but everything works great together. I could email you some pics, if you would like

I have the setup you are referring to and I was TOTALLY HAPPY with it UNTIL.. my buddy just purchased an 011 wee.. after reading several posts I encouraged him to go with the skid plate and footpeg setup from narcosis junky.. TOP SHELF STUFF..TOP SHELF COMMUNICATION.. TOP SHELF SHIPPING.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED..should work with your crashbars too
