Yikes!!  :005:
Just looked at the pics, even with the fender extender, that oil filter is still just hanging in the breeze. That is my #1 concern in gravel. With this set up, I would consider attaching (silicone or similar) an oil filter socket (one of those thin sheet metal ones) to the filter to protect it. Have used this strategy on a few bikes and it works just fine.  :028:
My T-rex bash plate has already payed for itself. :138:

Brilliant idea!

Will no one make a post as to why this is a disaster and only Rally Raid will do?  :821:

If you were to hit the skid say on the front part of the skid you could possibly break your case. Because its connected to the little loop you have close to where the case splits. Or if you hit hard near the gear shifter. You could possibly break your shifter off.
