Just a heads up... if you have the original JNS skid plate and want to purchase the new SW Motech crash bars you will need to notch rear corners as shown below.

Slight delay on the shipping schedule.

The new textured powder coating sure looks great!

I just installed my new SW Motech crash bar compatible skid plate, but was unsure about something.
The instructions weren't clear and I wasn't able to tell from the illustrations.
Where exactly do the two large bottom spacers go?
Between the skid plate and the mounting bracket, or between the small washer and the under side of the plate?

Thanks.

Just got a lightning fast email reply from JNS. For anyone else wondering, the spacers go between the plate and the bike. This is what I figured, but wanted to be sure.

Looks awesome.

Now to muster up the motivation to install the crash bars...

The crash bar installation is pretty straight forward. I use a short piece of 2x4 wood on-edge to prop up the fuel tank.

Getting the upper frame bolts to start threading can require some wrestling.

I have their skid plates on each of my Gen I KLR's. They are very well built and fit great with the SW Motech bars. I will take a few pics.

Also when you slam into a large downed tree they hold up amazingly well too......ummmmm from what I ummmmm have heard
