If anyone hears from dude let us know! I want one, but am not gonna deal with this hassle...
anyone seen this one.... http://www.happy-trail.com/Products/...spc-4-9-4.aspx
??? It attaches to the frame, so no worries bout your engine oil spilling all over the road in some foreign terrain.
I did look it, briefly. It is BUTT UGLY! Unlike the Alguard, it looks like an afterthought. It doesn't fit with the bike's lines at all.
The edge of that thing is not going to do much as a skid plate either, but catch on whatever it hits.
That brings up a nit I've got to pick. Amir, this is not pointed at you but is a general statement.
<FLAME>The part that everyone here seems to miss is that the Alguard plate is NOT A SKID PLATE, and NOT a BASH PLATE.
It is an ENGINE GUARD
Here is a quote from his page:
" However, rocks thrown from the front wheel can damage the header pipes and oil filter which are totaly unprotected?"
Nowhere on his page are the words "skid
" or "bash
It is intended to GUARD
from rocks and debris thrown up by the front tire.
It drives me nuts when folks bag on a product saying it failed them when in reality they were using it for other than it's intended purposes. </FLAME>
Amir, there really is no hassle dealing with n17.
You just have to have patience, which it seems that some folks here have litle of.
I've placed two orders from n17. I send an email requesting an item. He does not respond until he has the item ready to ship. When he does have it ready, he then emails you requesting payment. You pay, then he ships.
I've noticed several on this board wringing their hands and their panties in a twist because they haven't received a reply in 24 hours or some such.
If you follow n17's instructions, it is a very smooth transaction.
