Who am I?

Ok collective, what do I have? I admit I bought it used and was told at the time but that was 3 yrs ago. She wanted a BLACK skidplate on her 658 and there it was on kijiji. Not necessary for her riding style but it was cheap. I'm losing it me thinks

Well at least you have some kind of "game"!

Thanks. I was fooled by the pic in the spreadsheet but I see now. I don't have the rear portion on the centre stand! Now I need to install the TT bars. Man they're a pain what with having to take the thing apart to install spacers in the rear brake etc. That's another thread.

I really like the Black Dog Cycle Works skid plate (I have yet to purchase anything yet) But the upper front exposed bolt heads that are shown on the web site look to be a little exposed. Although I don't think I would be hitting or sliding across many rocks with these, but a well placed thrown rock from the front tire could cause the heads of the bolts to deform and therefore make removal a bit of a pain.

I would like to see some type of recessed flush mount Hex key type bolt in this place. Something to minimize snags and catches.

Hi Moonbeamer
Thanks for your interest in our skid plate. Just to clarify, we have had absolutely no issue with the front bolts in the manner you are referencing. A flush mount hex head often fills with debris, making removal difficult as well. At least with these bolt heads, there is more material that can be grabbed onto as well as to cut a slot if needed, but again, no issues with these so far.

If you have any other questions about this product (or others), please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thanks for your support
Kurt

I had no intentions of updating this after I made my purchase. But it seems to be useful enough, so I've updated page 1 with all the info since it's inception. I've also migrated to Google Docs, so it will be easier for me to keep all your updates going

I just installed my Black Dog Cycle Works skid plate. Definitely not costume jewelry. I have the Remus headers and it fit just fine. PK

Seems like a copy/paste version of the BMW OEM aluminium version for cheaper. If you like BMW OEM than it'll be just right for you
