"Please note that it is not a BASH plate, nor a SKID plate, but an engine guard."
Alguard's engine guard is only designed to protect the header pipes and oil filter from rocks thrown from the front wheel, mainly because of the aluminum oil pan bosses' vulnerability as they are only meant to secure side plastic covers. They're not made to withstand an upward/rearward bashing, aluminum bolts or not... That's what I like about my Happy Trails skid plate which is bolted at front and lower rear motor mounts on the chassis. It's also great to support the V with both wheels off the ground.
