It took a beating but save my cases on a bike that had 3 inches of suspension travel. I think I will go this route. Then, the impact of rocks and boulders etc. don't transfer to the oil pan.

Sorry about that. I didn't check the mailbox for a few days.
I made some plates and mounted them between the frame and the engine.
They are mounted on the 2 12mm engine studs. I use the plates to mounth the skid plate to.
