The design isn't strong enough to prevent it from getting bent and pushed backwards towards the rear wheel when going over (and hitting) high clearance obstacles. The effect is that the oil filter now sticks out through the access hole (unprotected), the holes for removing the drain plugs don't line up with the drain plugs, and the right rear mount has bent the frame tab which is shared by the exhaust pipe near the cat. It's fine for protecting the engine from rocks thrown up by the front wheel. Unfortunately I can't get good pics of the damage right now because the engine is out of the frame.What kind of issues have you had with the plate?
