bash plate issue
« on: January 27, 2016, 04:03:17 PM »
Has any one ripped their bash plate off ? i have a 2015 sefr 300 factory and i may have ripped it clean off last weekend..  not exactly sure how it popped off.. i was rocking back and forward over a root on a steep rutted out hill so i think the back end caught and those clips detached at the back and then it just pulled the front mount through the frame !  any fixes for this problem !? aside from buying a different bash plate haha

I have ripped mine off of 2 different bikes several times. I just stick it back on and it stays for a good while. Just make sure the metal bracket on the front doesn't get bent out where it hooks over frame. Usually it comes loose and just slides back. I haven't had it fall completely off the bike

You could try drilling a couple of small holes in the rear and fixing the bash plate to the frame with wire or cable ties.

I attached my bracket to the frame with a long cable tie wrapped / crisis crossed over it and a few blobs of glue from a glue gun. Made it way easier to re fit the bash plate after oil changes as prior to fixing it in place the bracket would slide down the frame when you offered the bolt up to it.

I bought a b&b unit out of aus. It is far superior to the stock one and prevents your frame rails from dents as well.
