I got it from MSC Products Australia it was AUD 879 and so far is worth every cent!!!

They make it but are selling as a new brand Ralle-Moto to be aimed directly at adventure guys, it looks heaps better than the 1 in the pic i put up the other day, when i get my camra bak i will post some pics

they dont hav a web page its under construction or something so just e-mail or call them, heaps quicker!!!!

BTW the only mod i had to do was make the 2 side holes that hold the front cover a tiny bit longer!!! 2 easy.

A few weeks ago I spoke to Emig - all he needs are pictures to make one.

When I spoke to Scotts they said they had no plans on making a kit for the F800GS and were scaling back R&D for new kits due to the economic slow down. It was suggested to me by the person I spoke to at Scotts that an outpouring of demand (calls, emails) might get them to produce a kit for the F800GS.

I'm waiting for my bike to arrive and have not looked into this any further.

I know that Scott and Jim from BRP mocked up something on a 800.
I think some phone calls to Scotts might be in order.

You got one interested. I am planning on buying your skid plate, but I was waiting until the bars came out. If you come out with a damper kit, you will put a nice dent in my wallet
