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)?

Don’t have either fitted, but based on the photos you attached, no...

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.

I ordered my SW-Motech skid plate from SDMOTO and I just got notification it has shipped.
I to went the Hepco Becker sw-moto route but the hepco bars are back ordered and it is going to be a month at least before I see them.
I have five different sizes of hammers, I will get them to fit together!

My SW-Motech and Hepco parts should arrive this week - then I know if all the parts will be compatible without trimming the SW-Motech aluminium engine guard.

Looks fantastic! Nice job.

I guess my “visual” was inaccurate - didn’t “look like” it would clear...

Thanks for taking one for the team!
