I had one for 2 years on my Scrambler. It worked fine, and protected from several off road impacts. It did bend a bit here and there, but I was always able to get it back in shape. The black paint will chip off in front pretty quickly from gravel roads and look less great. It does not protect the exhaust at all, so I did manage to break the small spring hooks between the header pipe and slip-on twice. The factory skid plate has this same vulnerability.Anyone had the evotech engine guard:

Nope, because I want something to protect the exhaust and spring under the foot peg (which I've crunched twice). I've been in contact with Touratech regarding their plate, and it doesn't look like it'll fit the DS due to how it mounts to the foot pegs. They offered to work with me to try and get it to fit (as in I buy it, they send it, I try it, and I take measurements, and I send it back if it doesn't fit, and then we try again). Hoping to get my bike within 2 weeks.Thanks anotherhobby. Will you put it on your sled once you have it?
If you can get it done, I will be their next test mule. Please let us know how it will work out!Touratech responded back, I placed my order, and we will work on fitment when it arrives next week. For my efforts and willingness to be a test mule, they offered me a reasonable discount and free return shipping if it doesn't work (obviously even after attempting installation). So, it's risk free for me. I'm really hoping we can get this to work!
