By unfortunate circumstance I now have two aftermarket bash plates. I fitted one the other day, the other is in the post.
They’re slightly different designs so I can do a comparison. My mate Steve can have the one I don’t want. The design is simple enough, and much better than the plastic OEM part.
Here’s the Ballards item fitted. It looks quite neat but is a snug fit on the engine. If I keep this one I’ll refit it after minor adjustments. When the other arrives I’ll swap and see.
Not very exciting granted, but something that might just save the bike (and me!) one day.
