We had always found the traditional design of bash plates very frustrating when it came to maintenance. They were always difficult to remove for cleaning so the bike was always carrying an extra kilo or two of mud.
When it came to oil changes there was always the concern of picking up dirt while feeding the sump plug up through the hole in the bash plate. Our solution was to develop mounting hardware so that the bash plate could be removed with a single bolt. While the design varies from one bike to another, they all feature quality stainless steel brackets.
