I was wondering about what seemed to be a rear cover on the left handside box.

My 640 is going through many changes from engine to plastics & very tempted to fab a Rally skidplate for petcock protection (the OEM ADV tank is a keeper for the time being) & much needed tools/spare parts storage space under its CG point.
Any info would be appreciated ...such as:
- What aluminium type/thickness you've utilised for the fabrication?
- Is it fixed only at the standard Adv frame attachement points?
- How does it stands up when put to the test?
&...
Anything different you'd do if you were to fabricate another one?


Btw,
Almost finished with all the mods but your bike looks so good that it has me considering adding a Blue/Orange paint scheme & fact is that I don't usually care for anything else than efficiency & performance on my rides:
In other words,
That bike of yours got me going for ''Poser'' status; ...Darn It!
