Z`s & E`s have different mounting points Radan, but i think there is a market for this on 600E for sure. :nordie:

Hi Mezo you have absolutly right, but this problem will solve various attachment as it is on this photo
protection of a sheet of another type solved by a reduction (which will be mounted separately).

It will depend on what motorcycle you order slywink:

Great Idea.
A few things to consider, as mentioned mounting systems will be slightly different.

If you want to make it a True bashguard (as opposed to debris deflector) stronger mounts required - particularly at the rear, 2x 6mm bolts into poorly mounted threads is not really strong enough
Most importantly make sure the oil draining system is easy mess free. The standard one fills with oil when i do an oil change on my 43f.

I know
XT600 has different mounting points as XT600E = I count on it

But the rear grip on the M6 is probably sufficient when it is there from the manufacturer. :book:

I personally have rivet nuts smile:

The oil draining system will be added as soon as the fixation and correction is verified.
It's not that easy to have a 3D laser device to focus the entire motorcycle at 1mm!

I have to check the points in the space and then I can do more and more variants and improve them.

(Today I made sample from 1mm thickness, tomorrow check mounting points)
