- Crash Bars Reinforcement – the engine guard is tied into the crash bars through a reinforcement bar.
- 27mm diameter tubing – handles the weight of the bike under impact (crash).
- Sandblasted and powder coated surface – simple and tough coating that lasts.

Please note: We do not guarantee compatibility with any aftermarket exhaust header/manifold due to the different shapes and designs carried out by dozens of exhaust manufacturer companies. At the moment, we only guarantee fitment with original Honda CRF1000L standard and Adventure Sports exhaust header/manifold. Thank you for your understanding.
The original Honda skid plate installed on Adventure Sports model is only compatible with this combo package, if you make minor modifications to it. Such as slightly bending the skid plate at the top left corner and right side wall. The majority of our customers have noted that it’s a feasible solution in order to retain the original Honda skid plate.
