I have had GYTR skids, etc on other quads (Raptor 250) and thought they were excellent design, fit, and craftsmanship. I was prepared to pay top dollar for skids for my son's new (to us) 2008 YFZ 450. Craftsmanship was still excellent, but it was designed with EXCESIVE gap between the rear chain/sprocket and the protective guard. I understand that the rear swing guard will need to give up some rear ground clearance, but this particular design gives up about an inch an a quarter more than a "tighter" design would dictate (compared to plates from other manufacturers that I have seen and even GYTR rear skids for other models of quad). That is a very significant percentage of the available ground clearnace and I believe it would translate to many more severe impacts. MotoSport is allowing an exchange and I hope to have better results with another brand. If you want a pretty chunk of metal to put on the workbench bench get it, but otherwise DO NOT BUY,
Not a bad skid plate if you are going to race on a track with no rocks. But if you bang this plate off rocks it bends very easily. I hit some rocks on trails and it did not take long for it to get a nice bend toward my brake disc. In my opinion the weight reduction from aluminum is not worth it, I would go with steel any day. In conclusion I would just like to say that if you are going to ride on rough trails...pick a different skid plate.
