Please understand I am not a bash plate manufacturer.
This is running on the side.
And on the side of some major problems too.
My welder burned out his electricity supply last week but he still says the stuff will be ready on Wednesday.

Must quickly pay licenses for car and bike then collect the bash plates from the welder.

Any cheap/2nd hand bash plates lying around for a DR 200 SE perhaps?

Sorry we did not have the Djebel 200 for long enough to make one.

But I'm kind of tempted since that's the only DS Suzuki left in the SA showrooms.
They should sell lots ??? ::)

I bottomed the 200 out on the suspension lever once or five times. Ouch! The frame cradle also had a couple of gashes :D

The SE (Farm bike) actually has a metal plate between the two bottom engine sub-frame pipes. ;)

The Djebel only has the two sub-frame pipes as "protection". Engine quite vulnerable! :o

I would be interested in a bash plate. Needs to be cheaper than the DR 650's though. Doubt if that will be possible. ???

I would not mind making something especially because the 200 is still sold new.
Agree it would have to be cheaper. No one pays R2,800 for a bash plate on a R34,500 bike :-\

Problem is I would need a DR200 at my workshop loaned for the day probably on two occasions to figure out how to do it nicely and for measurements & fitment tests.

Maybe a DR 200 owner in your vicinity will read this post, and assist! ;)
