Pan America - Gut Guard Skid Plate Install

Camel ADV Gut Guard skid plates, designed, tested and built in the rugged Canadian Rockies.

The Pan America is a big, beefy bike and it needs a big, beefy skid plate to protect it. If you're going to take this bad boy off the beaten path, you better plate up!

Like many new bikes, the Harley-Davidson Pan America uses the motor as a "stressed member". The motor itself is an integral part of the motorcycle's chassis.

The Pan America has many components that would normally be mounted to frame work under the motor are attached to the motor itself (rear suspension linkage, side stand, skid plate etc). This creates a challenge when designing a skid plate to protect the underside of the motor from damage caused by rocks, stumps, logs etc. A skid plate can simply be mounted directly to the motor but the force from a solid impact is transferred into the engine case. This can cause a cracked engine case which can be a very expensive and lengthy repair.

The Camel ADV Gut Guard uses an impact absorbing subframe mounting plate to disperse the energy from large hits. Energy created when the bike collides with rocks roots, stumps etc, is distributed to all of the skid plate's mounting locations rather than just to the location of the hit. This distribution of force means the chances of damaging the engine case due a large hit is drastically reduced.

We've spent a lot of time designing and testing our Pan America Gut Guard skid plate to insure it'll take the abuse we know some of you will throw at it!

Camel ADV Pan America Gut Guard Skid Plate Features:
-TIG welded 4.75mm aluminum main body
-Powdercoated for durability and a great look for years to come
-304 stainless steel, impact absorbing mounting sub-frame
-Large venting holes to ensure your charging system's regulator stays cool
-Drainage holes to allow mud, water and debris to escape

Hell's Gate Moab - 700 Tenere

Hell's Gate is an optional obstacle on the Hell's Revenge trail in the Sand Flats Recreation Area. This alternate section is a steep, V notch with multiple ledges and if you're really lucky, the rock is covered in sand too!

We rode this track during the Dirt Circus ride in March 2022. My friend Charles was there on his KTM 500EXC and Overkill Andy of Heavy Enduro fame was there on his Yamaha T7 as well.

2022 Desert 100 Race - Yamaha 700 Tenere

After two years of COVID cancelations, the Stumpjumper's Desert 100 was a go! 2022 was the 50th anniversary of this iconic race and it had a record turn out.

This was our 8th time racing in the ADV class. The course is a grind, not particularly difficult but it is relentless. The track is covered in baby head rocks, silt, sand and whoops. There is no opportunity to sit and cruise along, it give you no chance to rest. The DNF rate is 30-50%. 2022 was the dustiest event I've ever been to. The first couple miles had people cruising along in first gear until the dust cloud started to let up.

T7 Camel Tank Install

Since the 700 Tenere was officially announced in late 2017, it’s created quite a stir in the adventure bike community. Boasting a great list of features and specs this bike seems ready to conquer the ADV world! However, as the saying goes, “When you’re exploring, you can never have too much water unless you’re drowning or enough gas unless you’re on fire!”.

We can’t help you with the water but we definitely can with the fuel. Placed on the left side of the bike, opposite of the exhaust will sit your Camel Tank. Occupying otherwise unused space, the tank adds 5 Litres (1.3 gal) of extra fuel to your capacity for a total of 21 litres. That's an additional 80-120 km (50-75miles) of extra fun before you need to start looking for a fuel station!

Like the rest of the Camel Tank line, the CT-T7 is roto-molded (no seams to leak or split) from extremely durable XLPE plastic. Our brass inserts won't wear out or cross thread so you can be sure your tank will last the life of your bike! All the Camel Tank kits come with an anodized, CNC machined, billet aluminum fuel cap.

Compatible with the following panniers systems:

-OEM Yamaha pannier racks

-SW Motech Pro

-Outback Motorteck symmetrical (we have not tried the asymmetrical yet)

-Adventure Spec soft bag racks (require 10mm spacers and longer bolts)

*List will grow as we confirm fit with more pannier systems.

Features:

-Holds 5 litres/1.3 gallons

-Fuel is automatically transferred from the auxiliary tank to the main tank

-Keeps fuel weight low and close to the bikes center line

-Leaves your rear rack free for a top box or duffle bag

*All extra fees such as taxes, duties, tariffs, brokerage, etc are not included in the purchase price. Customers are wholly responsible for payment of these fees!*
