SW-MOTECH engine guard and HEPCO protection bars

Hello,

do you think that it is possible to use the SW-Motech aluminium engine protection guard in combination with the Hepco engine protection bar (Hepco also offers a protection bar for the tank if the bar for the engine will be used)?

I don't think the engine guards are wide enough to fit around the sump/bash guard.
Rally Raid is supposedly just a couple weeks away from releasing their combo sump/engine guard.
I am waiting patiently......

Does anyone know where to get the SW-Motech skid plate that DieselDriver posted above?

It's not on the Twisted Throttle (SW-Motech) website.

Sobering answer. :-(

I ordered the parts and I will try it when the parts will arrive.

I thought that in case of doubt I will trim the aluminium engine guard a little bit. The problem is that SW-Motech does not offer an bar for the tank and that the Hepco tank bar is only possible to use when the Hepco engine bar will be used.

But the angles of the pictures are very different so maybe there is enough space between the engine and the aluminium guard for the bar.

That is exactly the setup that I was looking at. Center stand and sump guard from SW and bars from hepco. Do let us know what you had to do to make them fit.

DD,

Where did you order the aluminum engine/sump guard from? I can't find it online.

I ordered it from Polo - https://www.polo-motorrad.de/de/moto...gs-silber.html
While easter holidays there Polo had a 20 percent discount on it (119 Euros instead of 150 Euros). :-)
You also can order it from Louis for 150 Euros - https://www.louis.de/artikel/sw-mote...chutz/10023450 or directly from SW-Motech - https://sw-motech.com/en/products/protection/engine+guard/4052572050224.htm
