Not bad pretty thick. If you punch a hole through it you probably have more important things on your mind like who's taking you to the hospital. Had make holes slightly bigger but that was it. Come with decent hardware light lock tight recommended for sure.

Great product and is a must have on any wheeler!
This skidplate fits as it should good tight fit. Seems to be strong and heavy duty
Fit like a glove! No problems at all. Great skid for the price!!
really nice for the money, nice and light and does its job, only complaints is one hole didnt line up and the piece that goes behind the bumper needed to be bent back so it would fit right
first of all let me say motosports shipping department ROCKS!! ordered this item on a tuesday night and got it on thursday!! anyway about the skidplate: it is a perfect fit for a 2008 KAWASAKI KFX 450R, NO MODS REQUIRED!! everything line right up. from the mounting holes to the oil drain plug access hole, installed in 10 mins.....have not tested it yet so i cant comment on its durability but it seems pretty soild
I put this on a 2008 Honda 400ex.It was really easy to put on and all of the bolt holes lined up.The only downside is the front of the skid plate sticks out over the stock front bumper about a inch and it looks kind of tacky.Other than that its pretty solid and very light.The only suggestion I would have is if you buy this get some kind of rubber bushings to go between the skid plate and the frame so it won't rattle.
I like the skid plate alot its very thick, would be hard to dent! but when i got done bolting it up it was a little crooked, i will have to reem the holes to line it up!! i didnt plan on having to do that!!
I bought a new z400 which meant my warrior has become my beat around woods machine for trail blazing in tight woods. This skid plate has held up to rocks, stumps, logs and all sorts of forest junk. I trust this 100%. Installation was quick and easy. Excellent buy.
Good skid plate, it rattled a little bit at certain rpms, but i put some rubber matting between the frame and the skid which eliminated the problem. I havn't had any issues other than that, and it shows hardly any scratches even after two XCs races this year. It isn't the thickest out there, but i am confident enough to put the atv through the worst without worries!
the skid plate worked great on my 400ex. it mached up just fine, easy to install. i ride in the woods sometimes and i have had no problems with anything getting kicked up and tearing anything up. iv sleed over some crazy logs and rocks and have had no problems with it breaking or cracking. its a great product
Good fit nice cutouts to change oil. Must have for protection!
This skid plate works well in all conditions I must say I usually ride alot of sand trails, wooded terrain and sometimes in the snow. It mounted on easy on my yfz450 but one problem was the front of it stuck out too far and would'nt go under my AC bumper so i simply cut it back a few inches and re-bent the lip on the front and it works awsome and looks flush.
This is a good overall skid plate for your quad. But it rattles alot when you ride. Just when your revving it it will rattle like crazy
This part is awsome. It was worth the money, trust me. I was riding and it almost saved my life. I rode over a rock and if I didn't have to skid plate it would have smashed my engine but I was lucky, it didn't.
We have had shipment of three skid plates for one purchase. Delivery time is too long as well as the distributor has double tagged these plates. The plates have a sticker for a YZF as well as a TRX450 - won't work on a 450R
I just bought this AC Racing engine skid plate for my 2004 Honda 400ex and I had the chance to try it out at Glamis, CA this weekend. Nice product! This engine skid plate is very helpful in sand dune riding, especially when riding over razorbacks, because it allows the quad to glide over the top of these pointy dunes. Without it, the frame bars cause resistance when hitting the tops of razorbacks. Installation, however, was a different story. This skid plate required modification in order to make it fit. I had to cut off a piece of the front with a jigsaw because it did not allow me to use my stock front bumper. I think it was designed to be used without a front bumper, or maybe their aftermarket front bumpers. Another thing was I had to cut off a piece of both c-clamps where they go over the frame because they were too long. Other than this, though, once the skid plate was on and I had a chance to use it on sand dunes, It was well worth the money.
