ROCK HARD RALLY GEAR Suzuki DR 650 Bash Plate (Australia)

Ive got a start on the DR 650 Rally Style Bash Plate with the two built in tool boxes.

Its made out of 5mm 5083 Alloy with the base sides and front all one peice and bent into shape. Its fully tig weleded and has recessed rear mounts and offers great protection for the engine , leavers and feet.

Ive just got to test it with the staintune pipe and check it width with the Safari 32L tank and give it a test run and then its all go.












Cheers Matt

Holy crap, that thing looks damned heavy duty. Almost afraid to ask what one would cost shipped to the US...

I so seriously need to learn to weld and fabricate.

Nice work there!

From the pictures, I wonder if there might be a foot clearance issue for those inmates who have long feet.

Are you cutting a hole for the sump plug so the oil can be drained without taking the bashplate off Matt, can't see in the photos

Im going to see if I can get the filter out without taking the bash plate off on the week end and I can mark it up for the drain hole so if you want it i can do it .

Ill let you know how I go.

Cheers Matt
