Oldaz,

i cant tell you how far the forks are pulled in - but it just seems to make it a bit better on tighter turns !!!

More of a slider plate. 6mm aluminium.2D3E1151-5C67-4DA0-9565-2DF05E7CFCF0.thumb.jpeg.26ac28cc1d15fce2d52ca2ac8d996f58.jpeg2D3E1151-5C67-4DA0-9565-2DF05E7CFCF0.thumb.jpeg.26ac28cc1d15fce2d52ca2ac8d996f58.jpeg

How have you attached it to frame, have you left original mesh in place ?

Looks good, very neat and tidy slider, reason I left mine wider was to protect the engine side covers, any more damage to them and it would be difficult to repair them. Thanks for sharing the pics.

The frame mods, whether lower tubes in place or removed all look very professional and neat. As added info, I’m sure you’ll be aware but I’d like to mention that the lower frame tubes can rub on the engine cases if too close, caused by rock and hard surface contact distortion, wearing away the casting and distorting mating faces. A dense rubber type mat or strip would help cushion any impact between bash plate flex and the underside of the engine. I’ve attached photos of my M80 Bultaco frame with 6mm bash plate, sorry I don’t have one with the rubber strip, but I used ‘temporarily’ rubber workshop floor mat ( sounds awful but it works and serves as a template) until I can get hold of something more substantial. I have heard of someone using a piece of conveyor belt, but I’ll keep looking.🙂 NB the bash plate has been tidied up after these photos were taken, but you can see where the engine had been rubbing itself away on the topsides of the lower frame tubes.
