Bottom line it was worth every penny in my oppion. For those that ask why the stock guards are not good enough, I feel they do a good job but allow to much mud to collect on the bike and do nothing for the lower frame rails.

If you get the eline, install is a little tricky with the spacers. I took black electrical tape and taped the spacers in position, placed holes for the bolts in the tape, and put the plate right on.
The only hassle is you have to remove the plate to change the oil. That also means you have to do the spacer thing all over.

I didn't think you can weld dissimilar metals, ie, aluminum spacers to chromo frame?
To weld, wouldn't I have to remove the entire engine to protect it from the heat generated from the torch? (PITA)
The tape works pretty well for a simple fix.
