Crash Bars and Skidplate???

About to purchase a 2012 (orange) Wee Strom. 8,000 miles, super clean with only two mods on it (that I know of) Hepco and Becker crash bars and MRA windscreen. (Check out my albums for pics)

The crash bars are in good shape, except for a weld that just seemed to have snapped on the bike. Anyone else know of any issues with Hepco and Becker crash bars?

Also, the bike doesn't have a skid plate. What's the best option for a black skid plate that has a hole for easy oil drain access?

I have a weld86 and I'm very happy with it! Can do oil and filter without removing it.

I have the SW-Motech skid plate and I'm happy with it. I can do oil and filter changes without removing it too. :mrgreen:

Sorry, can't help you with the H & B crash bars, I have the SW-Motech crash bars too.
