So since I already had a Rooster performance disc guard up front, I did a little bit of fabricating, and incorporated a stainless steel "skid plate" into the disc guard to help protect the vulnerable caliper from ruining anymore of my rides. I welded this to the existing disc guard, so that any impacts to the "skid plate" will transfer energy up into the base of the fork or into the front axle, and not into the weak mounting point of the caliper. I also drilled a small hole into the "skid plate" so that I would have access to the compression adjuster on my '06 WR front forks, without having to remove the front wheel.
Hopefully, no one else will experience riding in rocky terrain without a front brake, due to an untimely rock hit like me!!! Maniac
