Ricochet Armor Skid Plate Photos

Here are the photos of the updated skid plate.

Better clearance on the left side.



Oil filter cover is accessible now.



For the welding critics, the welds appear to be much nicer. They must have heard you.



I decided to tart my bike up a little with the Ricochet zap.



I added Cycra handguards last night too. They didn't give me too much trouble. I did have to reposition the levers a bit.

It's not header wrap. It's header armor. I got it at the same place I got the skid plate.

Ricochet Offroad Armor.

Have not done much to mine yet but ride it. I had an old set of el-cheapo handguards on a shelf. They fit.



My shopping list? One of the above skid plates, pipe armor, 13 tooth front, and a rear rack. I have a GIVI 30 liter top case on a shelf somewhere it looks like this but mine is white.



I just have to decide on what rack I want then adapt it for my case.

I believe he said they were Kenda 761's 80/20 Tires.

For those of us who are looking for options to the Richochet skidplate, who does polymer skidplates? Other than Hyde Racing?
