Mitani full protection bashplate

Recommended Posts

This arrived today, well impressed, thanks to Mark from H&D Racing, not looking forward to fitting it though, ratchet straps and hair pulling later

I've had a few Mitani plates, and they fit perfectly when new. No forcing needed. They are the regular models, in 6mm thickness. I'd expect this one to fit nicely just because it's a Mitani plate.

I'm guessing you just laid the pads on there for a photo, and you'll glue them in the right places for installation.

I'm sure it's all lined up perfectly, not so sure about my frame though. Got new pads as I suspect my old ones are well squashed

Great bash plate and dead easy to fit. the pic on the H&D website is the one fitted to my bike :)

a suggestion though, use some hard rubber or an old inner tube between the case and the bolts on the left side of the bash plate. if you hit something hard it pushes the bolt in to the flywheel casing and will need to be replaced or fixed if it happens. I used a folded up old inner tub and silicone it in place to fill the gap between the bolt and the casing

That's the same one I put on my bike, just in black.  It fits very easily.  Every other trials bike I've had the skid plate fitting procedure has been a fight, not on this bike at all.

A big enough hit on the sump guard will split the generator cover nearly in half and crack the right crankcase cover, not cheap to replace and not easy to weld. Won't be trying that section again!!!

Unless you never, ever bash your bash plate, put the rubber pads on.

Sportsawyer is 100% right. Without them you'll damage the center cases. Put the rubber pads on.....please..... and if they are damaged, replace them.

Managed to get around to fitting the bashplate yesterday, and it was without any doubt the easiest fitment I've done on a trials bike. Hand tightened the two front bolts home, pushed the back of the plate up by hand and fitted the two end bolts, couldn't of been easier.
