XRonly skidplate...rear nuts damage

Post  babuja on Tue May 20, 2014 11:03 am

I've been using XRonly skidplate and need to remove it often for cleanning, oil change, etc.



One of this times i've noticed that rear fixation nuts (engine case) are damage.

Anyone had same problem? How did you solved it?

I take mine off for oil changes etc, their only an M6 thread and I would guess the only fix would be to re-tap them M8 ?

Not very comfortable with drilling engine case... Maybe I'll try first to do 2 clamps to hold skid plate, not sure if possible, cheers

Sorry my bad, I didn't think about the holes that much and thought they went into the frame.....not the casing....I agree with you.....find another fixing nice
