Post a picture when you get a second, I'd like to see how they mate up with the crashbar.Installed Yann's Skid Plate and Hwy bars over the weekend on my 12 Adv.. Easy quick install. Fits great. It's nice to stretch out my legs on a long ride. Just for everyone's FYI
Enduro Guardian step by step skid plate installation 2012.wmv - YouTubeDo a search, there is a link to a video of him installing one on a 2012 with the highway bars. I will try to find it again and post it here later.
I can't tell any increase or decrease in the vibration other than in the highway bars. You can feel the vibration in those bars more so than in the standard pegs. I have the talked about vibration at about 47 to 49 hundred RPM. If I'm over or below that it has less vibration. Still not a problem, just noticeable. I have the adv. model with factory bars. Yann's skidplate bolts to those bars and to a bar that you mount under the bike.does anyone know if Yann's skidplat (or any skidplate for that matter) changes the vibration complaint on the '12 adv model?
Yann's highway bars look a little different than some but they are well built and strong. They also fold up out of the way if you don't want to use them. I ride daily so they get used daily. I've had them on for about 600 miles and have no complaints on them. They are built to do a job and they do it. I will also have to add that I'm 6'2" and my legs are stretched out when using them. I really like that part, some may not. There is a small amount of adjustment up down depending on where you put the bolts that connect to the crash bars. Hope this helps.First time poster, short time forum follower with spanking new 2012 adventure 650. I've been perusing all your wisdom here for the skid plate and definitely sold on Yann's when I'm ready to make the call (funds needed). However, I'm not quite sold on his hwy pegs after seeing his youtube videos. Can anyone comment on hwy pegs, especially for use with Yann's skid plate, or is Yann's pegs as top notch as his plate?
