Ordered the cheaper skid plate at first and was out of stock for a few weeks so I ended up paying the extra money and buying this one. So far so good, seems to hold up to everything I've thrown at it thus far. Installs in 15-20 minutes. Covers the crankcase well, cutout for oil changes seems to be pretty accessible (haven't done an oil change with it on yet). I like that it has vents to still provide air to the motor but also strong enough to protect the case, as always fast shipping too!

This skid plate lined up perfect on my YZ250 within five minutes I was ready to go out and rip it up again. Would definetly buy a devol product again. Great quality. Great material. Devol
I replaced the stock plastic skid plate on my 14 KTM 350xcf with this product. It offers superior protection of engine components with easy installation. My initial drawback was the accessibility for oil changes and maintence. Although you are required to remove this plate for oil change, it's very quick and simple. This is a lightweight product that offers great protection even in rocky terrain. Good price point, great fit, and easy on and off.
Does exactly what you want and cleans out easily. Don't know what some of these reviews mean when talking about hard install. This thing was simple. I recommend 19lb ft. When torquing it down.
My 2015 WR450F came with a cheesy plastic plate that likely wouldn't hold up after a single direct hit so it was obvious that I needed something more durable. Since diamond and kryptonite weren't an option, the Devol plate seemed a logical alternative. It bolts on quickly and easily and looks great.
Having the few holes in the plate limit refractory engine noise, helps keep temps down, and drains any water that kicks up.
Ideal to a MUST have to protect critical engine parts and components when some parts are no longer available to protect investment.
This skid plate offers some really good protection and appears to be quality made. You can access the drain plug without taking of the skid plate which is good because it was a little tuff to get on compared to other plates used. It would not be something I would want to take on an off a bunch so that is a little bit of a bummer if you get debris stuck in there. But for my YX250x it does the job of keep my case and other parts out of harms way.
Fits perfect on my 2017 YZ450 F little hard to put drainplug back in with the small cutout but easy enough to just take it off
Great product, great fit.
Fit great slides over logs great work great for the Enduros I do
Great looking well built skid plate. However, I had to do a little heating and bending, plus use different hardware to get a perfect fit.
Works good. Good coverage. Access to oil drain works nicely. Mounting was a bit tricky. Had to drill some new holes. Not a big deal.
I've had this skid plate for two years now and if it wasn't for this skid plate I would've had to replace multiple cases from a few crashes. I highly recommend this skid plate if you don't have it get it just the peace of mind riding with this is worth the price nevermind the great protection this has to offer
As always devol delivers an amazing product. Used them on other bikes and never let me down. Put this one on a YZ250X and bolted right on.
Excellent fit and provides great protection.
Love this skid plate. Great coverage and protection.
Glides right across logs when you can't get over them cleanly. Also keeps tons of mud, dirt, rocks off front of engine. Much better than the OEM engine shields and skid plate.
No modification needed, just bolt it on.
Not super thick and sturdy, but enough for some decent protection. Fit was almost perfect for '06 YZ250F. I had to cut away a bit of the underbody mounting hole to make the bottom bolt line up. That said, the shape is tight to the frame. Nothing obnoxious about it.
It has holes to change your oil with it on... Good luck. It's a huge pain to get the drain plugs back in once you have them out. Easier to just take the skid plate off.
Overall, a nice product if you're looking for some additional protection, but don't want a heavy, bulky skid plate.
This is a must for all riders who ride often and trail ride, I had a crash and ended up breaking my oil filter cap, if i had not the plate I would have busted my cases for sure.
