Altrider's skid plate is on backorder. From what I can tell, they've only tested the crashbars with one other skidplate with the Wee - I think it's the adventure motostuff - which I personally don't like.

Does anyone know of other skidplates that will mount to the Altrider crash bars?
Will the SWMotech skid plate work?

Thanks.

PS. I spoke to the company today. Seems kinda weak to not know which plates will work with your crash bars...don't you think?

I agree. I called them with some questions and was less than impressed with the customer service. Too bad because their products look like nice.

To me, customer service is as important as the product.

It's pretty tough to know if your product will work with somebody else's unless you've had a chance to try it. They would need somebody with an SW-M skid plate to bring it in to check.

Hi Guyver,

I have just fitted Yann's skidplate to my Altrider crashbars, see thread here:

http://www.stromtrooper.com/australia-new-zealand/62767-i-couldnt-wait-any-longer.html

Feel free to ask any questions, i am very happy with the combination, but as you will see in the thread, i needed to modify one of the skidplate brackets, if i did not upgrade the mounting hardware from Yann, i think the standard clamps would have been an easy fit.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'll go with the Altrider bars and modify a skid plate myself.
