Question Skid plate measurments for f800 GSA

I recently bought a GSA and after reading through thousands of threads i thought i would have a god at making some of my own farkles. this is a problem as i am across the world from my bike on a ship, at work. i was hoping someone could get me a few measurements or lead me in the right direction to find them. i need a few different areas.

First and most simple is the diameter of the stock engine guards.

Second, i want to make a skid plate, so the bolt pattern at the bottom, as well as how far back from the header and angle? i figure ill oversize the ends and cut down when i get home, but for now need to know how far forward i can go before bending up.

Lastly the radiator guard measurements. bolt pattern and general area measurements.

i can do any necessary finishing work when i get home, but would like to have these things mostly finished before then.

Thanks

IMHO, there is no way you can fab this up, without having your bike in front of you. It is such a dynamic shape, that I am only afraid of the work you have done, will be wasted. I do not cast doubts on your skills, just the timing. I would wait until you have the bike front and center.

Eh, your probably right. i got a good deal for a black dog skid plate from a fellow inmate anyway, and the radiator guard should be quick and can wait. i would still like the diameter of the crash guards though. just trying to make so highway pegs.
