Greg,
I too installed the BD skid plate this Spring. I have the same hollow sounds. You are right, that big flat plate is a wonderful reflective speaker for all mechanical sounds from the engine. Especially the shifting.

The directions indicate adjustment to make sure the rear bracket is not touching the crankcase, I was not able to succeed in doing so. I am wondering if this is causing the plate to attenuate the noise. The next time I change the oil, I will mess with this.
