ACD Skid Plate & Header Contact


Recommended Posts

Just a heads-up for anyone else using an ACD skid plate. My T7 came with an ACD skid plate installed (bought the bike used), and yesterday when I removed it to do the 4k mile oil and filter change I noticed that the left header pipe had been contacting the skid plate.




I used my hydraulic press to slightly bulge forward the contact area on the skid plate, and then when reinstalling I ensured the skid plate was as far forward as possible when tightening the attach screws. The result was a gap that now appears to be 3mm or 4mm wide, with more gap also noticeable between the top of the skid plate and both header pipes as they were very close before.
