On the handguards, I use the Cycra Probends. I'm sure others will chime in with what they prefer.
On the Skidplate issue, I use the Flatlands racing Skid Plate. Same issue as above.
The reason the metal plates seem louder is that they reflect all the engine noise upward. The plate itself doesn't rattle
, just makes the engine sounds more pronounced.
I actually have issues with my plate rattleing at certain rpms. I am going to get around to fixing that one day!
