Turbo city has one but the price is almost 3 times that of the ricochet skid plate. http://www.turbocity.com/product_inf...roducts_id=691
For the price and protection the ricochet offers its a great deal. Here's some pictures.
This is what my KLR250 looks like most of the time I have owned it, now 10 years....wow time flies. I have put over 7000 miles of off road work on the poor thing and I just can't seem to break it. It's old technology yes but it is a very effective tool when climbing around in the woods. It will go for road rides as well although I'm not sure it's happy going fast.
If you can get a good running one, buy it, mine has never let me down.
