Hyde Racing skid plate

Wanted to let other strommers know about my recent purchase of a Hyde Racing skid plate for my 2011 Wee. Came five days after ordering. Installation was a breeze. Good company to deal with. The skid plate is made of strong and thick abs plastic, and I believe will hold up to anything I wish to throw at it. It appears to protect the oil filter and cooler, and the underside of engine well. This is not made or installed to go over rocks. It appears that it will handle any road debris, dirt and gravel roads that I will expose my Wee to. Price was great, and now hope not to be worried about some object hitting oil filter etc..
Chose not to go with more expensive skidplate, as I do not take my Wee more offroad than hard packed dirt, and did not want a difficult installation.

Interesting looking product. Any idea if it will fit a We with an H-B center stand and Givi crash bars installed?

I can't speak for the HB center stand, but I have the Hyde plate and Givi bars. No issues.

The Hyde plate fits just fine with the 2012 Hepco Becker crash bars.
