I was riding at ocatillo wells last weekend and crashed on a well placed rock. I bent the oil line bolt that holds the line to the engine case. I think I am going to buy the skid plate here on thumper talk, it looks like it offers way more protection. This line almost had me pushing my bike back to camp. Good thing I had extra bolts in the smog pump that I left on and a handy rock to bend the line back. Anyways watch those lines they are not pefectly guarded.
