I wanted to have some protection there, and i had a load of fiberglass so i thought it might make a good project. But unfortunately i have 2 left hands, so im not that good with this stuff. I made a template out of cardboard put it on and now im in the fiberglass phase. Hopefully this will be good enough for the type of riding i do. I never even felt in my type of riding i needed much, but something there to protect the oil filter and oil cooler might be nice.
