Force Bashplate coverage and fitment - Beta 480

I had the same coverage issues on the 300, and yep I did some damage to the angled section near the footpeg. I remember Barry Morris saying Force fixed it so I gave them a call today.
Turns out the 2 stroke bashplates have been fixed but not the 4t, very helpful lady on the phone said it will be passed on to the engineer/designer and I should expect a call next week.
In the 2nd pic the bracket isn't lined up right. The tabs on the frame aren't a mirror image so the bracket is skewed anti-clockwise. Maybe the frame is different to earlier models?
The 3rd pic, well that was all my fault. Loading the bike onto my trailer without a ramp I must have had my thumb in a hole on the sprocket.. bike rolled forward and jammed between the sprocket and swingarm. Pic was taken 5 days afterward.

What is your definition of isn't lined up right?

The hole is in the middle & if the Basher fits:- Bolt it on & forget about it.
Edit: I'd likely try/suss that plate out on the other side of those tabs too.

Maybe the Italian Welder was still pissed on the Monday:
It's beyond me why those two tabs are off-set anyways.

For it to be lined up right, the bracket wants to be rotated clockwise.
Maybe on earlier models the tab on the right in the pic is lower than mine.
The holes on the original plastic plate are offset and it fits perfectly

The fastning nut on the bracket isn't visible thru the hole in the bashplate. If the bracket was rotated as I described above im guessing it would fit.
As for trying the bracket on the other side of the tabs, it wouldn't work - the outer fastning nuts are on the back side of the bracket as well.

Thats why I started making my own.
Never been impressed with companies that think its ok to leave the rear framerails and peg mounts exposed, especially on aluminium framed bikes.

Your lack of thumb-nail is disturbing.

It sucked thats for sure.
GGMan, I am annoyed with it. Going to see if I can send it back to Beta Aus and replace it with the red plastic Boano one - looks like its got better coverage.
I am not waiting around for Force to fix their stuff up.

To be honest I'm not all that happy with how their radiator guards fit either

I wouldn't use the Force rad guards, they are more decorative than protective.
Enduro Engineering brace and guard combo or ProPower Billet guards actually protect the radiators from front impacts and dropping the bike on its side.

Heres how to fix a farce bashplate.

First cut off the back section where they have those dopey over the frame back loop.
Get some cardboard out and make a template to match and cover all of the rear framerails. Cut it to match the front of the original bashplate.
Get some 4mm aluminium plate and cut it to size.
And weld it on. Then all you have to do is fabricate a mount to hook on t o the rear frame.
Here is one I did for a YZ250

Cheers Roon & GGMan, Ill know for next time I guess.
The rad guards I will have to live with for now, hope to get a refund on the bashplate. If its store credit Ill get the Boano one, If they spring for a refund Ill check those ones you mentioned Roon.
Nice job on that one GGman.
