Looking for something that prevents the impact to the lever, not that protects the lever from being ripped off or bent severely.

Thanks for the suggesting though.

This is the only solution I know of, going to cost you about $600:

Dr650 Pat Walsh Design Skid Plate

Just installed the PWD skid plate. It mounts to the frame boss's in rear and clamps up front. No clearance issues with clamps.

What is the best hand guard that is bolt-on without modification? Bark Busters, Acerbis, etc? I see Procycle sells a hand guard kit, but the deflectors are separate, so $100-ish for both. Is this kit any better, or easier to install than some of the others?

fitting hand guards "bark busters" etc.

I'm about to fit some Zeta protectors to my bars but not sure about the throttle side which is solid with the thread down the centre to screw on the end weight. How does one get this out please.

While the B&B plate seems to be the best (should be for $180!), what's the best US alternative?

The Utah Sports, Procycle, and Pat Walsh all seem to be about the same (4mm), but vary quite a bit in price. What makes the Pat Walsh worth the $120 vs the Procycle at $80? Is it a better, stronger mounting system?

There's a better bash plate made in Oz but it does cost a bit more...

Skid plates:

Probably one of the best available in the US. I have an out of production DG skid plate that is built very similar w/ coverage and is thick.

Most everyone sells a rebranded Utah/Ricochet Skid Plate
http://www.ricochetoffroad.com/store/page163.html

Motech makes one that covers well, but for some reason they add way too many holes in their design?
http://www.twistedthrottle.com/sw-mo...uki-dr650se-96

There is also a Suzuki one that does not have good coverage, plus an ultra beefy Rock Hard Rally Gear one.

Whipps, from Australia, makes a beefy one too. I say this one is the beefiest one available world-wide. They ship to the US but it's a bit more $$$ than others. http://whipps.com.au/motorcycle-accessories
Like DG, they use 4mm thick alum.

B&B, also OZ, makes one too. It's built beefy like Whipps but not sure about thickness nor how far back it goes.
http://bboffroad.com.au/shop/online-...uki-dr650.html

Flatland racing does not make one.

Skidplates - If I had not already bought a Ricochet plate I think I would spend the extra bucks for a Pat Walsh plate to avoid the possibility of the rear clamps rotating into the crankcases as.reported by some. But, since I already have the Ricochet and an OEM plate that is now just scrap aluminum, I decided to combine the two. I cut off the rear section of the OEM plate and TIG welded it to the Ricochet. This way I can use the rear mount points on the frame rather than the C clamps.
