I have a Whipps bash plate:

B&B also do them here:

I like the Whipps because of its a quick release system. I did add the 'wing' over the water pump to make it even better.

Man, Steve's bike is awesome.

I emailed Whipps about a bash plate and they never replied. If you search for "husaberg" on their website, nothing is found, so I guess they are done making them. Too bad.

I just spoke to Whipps and unfortunately they no longer do the Berg plates. I suggested that they would still have a template there, but alas no.

Try utahsportcycle.com they have richochet and can do anodized colors for 20 bucks more. I am about to order one myself for my 650.

Re: 650 skid plate?

I'm with Steve on this one, the whipps was the choice, the B&B one would be a good one also I'm sure, but agreed you'd need to make sure the coolant hose and water pump has extra coverage,

I use a Hyde on my 550 and while the argument is there of plastic over alloy, it's served me well in some pretty full on terrain. The fitment is good but I've added some old front tube material to the clamping system to get a more snug fit against the frame

Good luck with getting one sorted for the 650

Cheers
