Another +1 here to go with the stainless steel case armor from ProCycle. Their case armor & skid plate deal is hard to beat for $160.

I did add an extra home made piece on the clutch side case made from a stainless steel light switch plate. To help protect the part of the case that sticks out below the 2300ml tag. I don't have a picture, but it does add a couple more inches of protection for the bottom of that area that sticks out, that the case armor doesn't cover.

As for a skid plate, I have read to many horror stories of guys punching holes in their engine cases from rocks and branches kicked up from the front tire. So even the Suzuki skid plate as a minimum is a good idea.

Adding an oil filter cover guard? Maybe if you really beat hard on your bike off road a lot, it might be forth it??? On my old Honda XR350R and Yamaha TT350, they had the same oil filter cover in the same spot. Those two bikes went through hell and back many times and I never came close to hitting the oil filter covers. So not sure if it is worth getting? or just a "bling" add-on, lol.
