Looks like an early SW Motech skid plate/
Do you mind asking him? I reached out to SW Motech but the rep advised they did not have any documentation of their first version of the skid plate and so would not confirm. All I'm really looking for is the torque specs for when I remove it to do an oil change and I could get those from the current version sheet.That's what I thought as well. I buddy of mine bought one for his DL650.
Ah that's helpful, thanks!! All new territory to me.That's easy. Just Google "metric bolt torque specs."
M8 standard is ~30 Nm.

That's also a good point ... I'm still learning here so my first instinct is to go "by the book." How about using loctite?It's a skid plate, not a cam journal. Tight enough is good enough.
PM sent - thanks!! @Stalky Tracker@rahza if you want, PM me your email address and I'll send a copy of the SW Motech installation instructions I found. They show M8 at 23 Nm, M10 at 46 Nm, and M6 at 9,6 Nm.
