Try I: stock XR650L Rock Guard (requires two 2" spacers & 9 1/2" X 3/8" bolt - and a bracket to hang from the Oil Cooler bottom bolt).

TryII is a stock plastic XR650R Skid Guard attached to a Givi Engine guard (Installed over the XR650L guard). I had to make a bracket to wrap around the 1" diameter Givi tubing. Since I do not plan on taking this on serious trail rides - Plastic is O.K. The plastic XR650R Skid Guard does require a small metal spacer to keep the hot exhaust from melting it!

Part# for XR650R Plastic Guard: 50351-MBN-670ZC (H/C 6374151)
Should be less than $50 via a Honda Dealer.

Most serious XR dirt riders upgrade stock guards to Heavy duty Skid Plates. Should be several stock XR guards for available.

As I said before... That looks very good


Question:
on version 2
You have left the Pipe Guard on there (from version 1)

and then mounted the pan to it ?


I agree, it's not for rock hopping or Serious off road...

But I always thought the oil filter was a little too exposed...
this is a Nice cover for the pipe and oil filter.. keep it clean and protected


Shweeeeet!

Thanks

Yes - both guards are attached - but the plastic XR650R guard is attached independently of the XR650L metal guard. The XRL metal guard gives better protection from rocks & the Plastic XRR Guard protects from debris & road grime. If you have an engine guard like a Givi or Motech - then you can attach a XR650R plastic guard by itself (making a couple hanger brackets). Of course, the ultimate Aluminum Skid Guard is the SW Motech.

Great idea! :?: Re option #2: How is the guard attached to the bike on the bottom at the rear end of the plastic?
