Now, back to talking about those skid plates!
Speaking of....... Have I got a deal for the S10 community. A genuine Yamaha OEM
skid plate. Yes it mounts to the rear sump area unlike those pricey poser bash plates
that seem to be popping up all over.

In a very recent survey 100% of the respondents prefered the sump mounted skid plates.

Okay, so the only people available for the survey were my two year old grand child and
my mother in-law.

In fairness to the survey she does own a Yamaha,



She's really cute,



And has a strong back ground with Power Wheels. I'm going with expert witness on her.





I will admit my mother-in-law was not as committed and even a bit hard to understand
but I put her down as a Yes. So there you have it. 100% support for the Yamaha plate.



Now that the whole frame mount vs sump mount has been put to rest let's move on.

I present to you a charming example of Yamaha's factory recommended engine protection system.





I know, be still your beating hearts. When your friends ask you how you dented it up just
look them in the eye, cross your fingers and say "Hit a submerged log crossing a gator infested river"

You born again Christian types that may want less embellishment may try "Combo chuck hole speed bump
in the Walmat parking lot". "Barely lived to tell about it"

I will ship it in the same wrapping as that POS Altrider plate came in so your mailman will think
you paid top dollar!



But wait, there's more!!!.... for just seperate handling and shipping charges I will include this
beautuful gourmet set of dining utinsels for four.



PM me your offers. I'm an honest person and will not consider offers over manufacturers mrsp.

This pete d-bag is the same troll that did this same thing on the STen forum. He won't be back, he's likely not an owner of one of these bikes, etc.

You're right though, the crash bars can wait. Buuuut, I'm contemplating the Rumbux system, which means I'd buy them together. Or the H&B Plate and SWM Bars, then I could buy them separate (and save $100). Aww dammit this question again.

Nevermind! Ride On!

You know, in about 17 years, she's going to be posing for some John Deere or other similar calendar and thinking "Whoa! Deja vu!! This seems so familiar!"

Option - Buy the Rumbux lower crash bars/skid plate and wait on the upper bars until you're ready. You get some side protection, the oem tip over plastic guards stay in place, and you can add what ever you want later, including the Rumbux upper hoop with it's greater side protection.

What that doesn't give you is radiator protection if you dump hard and go all the way over or bounce off a tree or big rock. What it does give you is excellent sump protection, along with exhaust, O2 sensor, water pump protection and places to mount highway pegs, lights, etc.

Hi,
I helped to develop this decal kit for the Super T and yesterday they used my bike as a “top model” for the promo pictures.
They are very thick vinyl so not only they are decorative, they also protect the bike.
There are different options and colors, more info in:

It's normally pretty easy to sort out the trollers from the ones who really want to know about the bike.

It is fun to see how fast the wagons circle in defense of outrageous remarks. We are a protective group.

You know what they say about the green ones...

As far as your tank paint issue I found riding with pants on solves it.
