I have "googled" for various ways to install the plate and I agree with you, front engine mounts and centerstand mount are the best mounting points. I may attach a picture here when it is ready. Winter starts now here in Finland so my bike stands for 2-3 months and I have plenty of time to prepare for the next season.

Thanks for the answers :) That was a good video. I mainly run on paved roads, but the front wheel still flies small stone chips directly into the oil sump and that consumes the paint out of it. Really annoying. It needs some protection.

SW Motech skid plate looks quite good so maybe I should spend some money...

Would anyone know what that little knob is on the front side of the oil sump of CB500x? The bike is 2017 model. I'm going to make a light belly pan from an aluminum plate and that would be one the fixing points. I am interested in the original purpose of that knob. Do you think I can use it for the aforementioned purpose?

It's a shame that Honda took the belly pan away from the 2017 model.
