It's heavy, but shit, the weight is low and there isn't a ding on it. My head pipes are intact because of the steel bash plate. make one. If you need help, us Atlanta folk love to cut and weld custom crap.
Contrary to what happened on yours, my twin headlight ernie bash plate fit just fine on my bike. Maybe your holes weren't located right or something? Mine used the ~1cm spacers that ernie included, and while it was very close the headers, it didn't make contact.
