Took longer for the engine to cool off then install.
I hear rocks 'PING' off of it even going down the country roads.
Look in the 'garage' under my avatar and you can see it better than at the web site....Think it was around $70+ delivered.....
I liked them because it has dual wings(Just like the Maxi Pads )
Here is the website;

Anybody know if any company makes a hard plastic skid plate for the dr650? My friend has one on his KTM by KTM and not only has no durability complaints but he also said it's much quieter.
I am making one at the moment, and I am going to sell them when I work all the bugs out. I am making it out of puck board. I will see how it does and then sell a few.

I'm just curious(or maybe just stupid) but what the heck is puck board

You have company. Puck board?????????
I work with my father, and he owns a machine shop. But I am trying to make them out of alluminum, stainless steel, and puck board. I used to make my front nose cones on my stock car out of puck board, and it was realy strong and stood up realy well. I am just trying new things, and want to see what would do best. The puck board is great because it would not make any noise, but I am not sure how it would stand up. So it does not hurt to try.

I understand but what is .....puck board?
Puck board is just a thick plastic, flexible plastic. Maybe I do not know the proper name for it but that is what is called here at the local hardware store.
