that is a bit foofy...definitely a appearance based product rather than a useful one. It looks as if it would protect the filter from an occasional rock thrown from the road but that would be about all. Same for the chain guard/fender thing made by the same manufacturer. I think if any offroading were to be done, they would be the first thing to go crack. On road the style would be up to you. J.R.

Since I don't plan on doing much off roading, I've been looking for a reasonably priced plastic belly pan. I like the look of both....foofy or not, for the road it would do the trick.

Thanks for the post, you've helped me out!!

You can protect the filter

... without spending a nickel!

When tmcgee (in New England forum) reported his oil filter got pierced in an attack by 85 crazed terrorists ... I mean by a piece of metal on the road, I started thinking. When I woke up, it occurred to me that a tin can would strengthen my oil filter a lot, like 100%. So I stuck a magnet to the front of the filter, cut a soup can to length, stuck it on, and I feel a tad safer.

The can has stuck with me through six provinces and nine states, and neither it nor the oil filter has suffered any damaged. Moreover, when I throw it out, my oil filter looks cleaner than yours.

So there.

Thumbs up Chalk up one for the inventive mechanic!

Geez Keith,

Onya! You sure you're not an Aussie? There's not too much in life you can't repair with baling wire, araldite and duct tape, eh? I just love everyday "agricultural" type fixes.

Cheers,

Rob

i'm still undecided. i really like the dan vessel abs skid plate, theh hyde racing plate, but the holeshot model looks nice too. as far as prices

200.00 for hole shot
dan vessel metal or plastic 110.00
hyde racing 125.00

i only do street riding with my dl650, so i'm looking for some light protection.

I like the can I dea for aethetics alone.

I'll leave the paper label on, when the label finally falls off - time to eat more beans.
