That is an excellent way of reducing the oil cooling on yer bike.

The earlier R80G/S bash plate was formed into a corrugated shape with some cooling/water shedding slots in it. And it bolted directly to the sump.

You could mount an extensive bash plate to the font of the frame and to the bottom of the foot peg mounts. Use some rubber bump stops between the new bash plate and the sump to aid strength and stop ringing. Something at least 3mm thick?

The idea is to spread the impact over a large area - so you don't get a sharp puncture through the sump?
