Thru bolts

+1 on thru bolts with nyloc nuts on the outside.



I was able to re-install the skid plate by removing the left foot peg and then attach (loosely) the plate with the thru bolts. Next tighten down the left foot peg to bend the rear of the skid plate in 15mm and tighten the remaining bolts. It's a work-around till Kurt comes up with a proper fix.

Went out and pulled the plate just to be sure. If I remove the bolts it is tight enough to stay in place but a good jerk downward and it falls right off. Installing it is about as easy, put the front bolts in to hold it and the rears require just a little push to get them in. A tap with the heel of your hand to get the holes lined up and reinstall the nuts. I didn't measure it before I made adjustments but two good whacks on the rear holes with a 5 lb deadblow makes it perfect!
Great product, love it.

OK - mystery solved. We have determined that there were several skid plates from the first batch that were not build to spec - namely the distance at the rear mounts. These skid plates will be replaced with the next batch.

Our skid plates should DEFINITELY NOT require the removal of a footpeg to change the oil and we will be watching the production to make sure there is sufficient clearance.

Here is a little 1190 skid plate porn for you to enjoy...

Now i read this about the back holes are not in spec, well sh** happend. That's why it took me 1 h to get the plate in position. First I thought it has something to do with the rubber insert on the front. But in the end things sort out well.

Anyway probably you could include the next batch the integration of the sensor as well. Here in Europe you get a problem with the cops, if they see the sidestand is not swiching off the engine while a gear is in.

I just flip the position to the upper part of the relocation bracket, two M4 with winding to fix the sensor. One M4 hole with winding to fix the OEM magnet. The only thing I have to do is tho make the wire longer about 20 cm. But that's just a hint.

Thanx again for the nice product, Kurt!

Any plans to release a side stand relocation kit without having to use your skid plate? I already have a skid plate on mine.

This kit looks beefy as hell. When my '15 R arrives, there will be one of these waiting for it. Need to order a BD plate for the wife's F700 here shortly.

Had an issue installing this yesterday. The T25 bolt that bolts the side stand to the engine case stripped out (the one on right). Will probably have to drill this out.

Did anyone need to use heat to get this bolt out?

I guess I got one of the first few of the second batch. Following the instructions I had no problems with fit or install (seems all previously reported problems have been fixed). In retrospect I believe I would have also ordered the side stand bypass plug. However Black Dog has a fairly effective way to "fix" that problem in the kit.

MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AND CHECK THAT THE SIDESTAND "FIX" IS WORKING BEFORE YOU WRAP IT ALL UP IN THE SUPPLIED SHRINK WRAP! (I had installed the magnet on the wrong side of the sensor, but caught the problem and fixed it before moving on). Again I would have ordered the bypass in retrospect.

Only complaint I have (other than price) is having to remove/file down the powder coating for the side stand to work without sticking (should have been done at factory). Also the replacement side stand spring is not great and has clearance issues with the head of the bolt in which the side stand pivots.

I read all the forums and did my research before buying the best skid plate! These are relatively minor complaints for an otherwise good product... Yes I would recommend this product to a friend.

Hi Scudrunner
The side stand relocation will not be offered as a stand alone kit as it is integrated into our skid plate (which in turn helps support the side stand mount). Sorry

1190 black dog skid plate

I have the black dog skid plate and installed this weekend. I noticed today my oil temp ran about 10-25 degrees warmer than normal. After getting home and looking the bike over it occurred to me that while this plate is very beefy and good coverage it does block all air flow and seems to concentrate the radiant heat from the exhaust, block, etc. has anyone else noticed this?

I will run the bike tomorrow on the same run in the same ambient temp and see if the temps go down.

For Kurt @ black dog. Any reason for no air holes on the front side to allow some air to pass though like other skid plate designs? Unless there was a good reason not too, I may take a drill a Swiss cheese the front a little if my test proves that temps go down without the skid on.

Thanks
