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.

Keeping your bike protected when pushing the limits is what can be expected from the DeVol Skid Plate. DeVol is a company dedicated to offering durable protection and their Skid Plate will keep debris from damaging your bike's frame and, with the built-on extended flanges, also protects the engine. The durability of the DeVol Skid Plate is accomplished with the use of a high-grade aluminum alloy. Aluminum will not only offer great protection it also minimizes the added weight. DeVol paid close attention to detail when designing their skid plate. They located the most secure mounting points to allow their skid plate to take a beating so your bike does not have to. The DeVol Skid Plate is cross cut on the front to allow for fresh air flow to your motorcycles engine, and it allows for convenient and easy access to the oil drain plug for regular maintenance.

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.
Fit great, loved the way its held on. Was a little difficult to hold the bars that hold it on and get the screws started but that was about it. It protects really good. Spend the money on this on you wont regret it.
A very high quality skid plate. Great fit and appearance.
2011 ktm 250sxf. It fits perfectly. Super thick
This review is for this skid plate on an 09 YZ250F:
The plate was easy to install. The metal was WAY too thin for the price. I expect this plate to get damaged quickly, and then I will have to buy another one. Seriously contemplating sending it back to MotoSport and having them send me a different one.
I have a Flatland skidplate on my CRF250X that is at least 3 times the thickness.
The product fit precisely. The attention to detail appears very good. The welds, and the cuts made to the aluminum are precise and clean. I did not find the edges of the cuts to be sharp, or ragged.
The instruction sheet was quite minimalist in it's description, but should not pose a problem if you perform your own installations or are a mechanic.
It has good welding and it only took 10 min. to install.
Very nice skid plate with the side protection that I was wanting. I especially liked the slots cut in it for added air flow around the engine cases. This skid plate is built like a battleship, very strong, excellent welds and so easy to install that even Obama could do it......well maybe!
Try and get pass this skid plate rocks!
Using on a KX450, great protection in NE rocks and roots.
Looks and functions great. There is a hole in bottom to get to oil plug. A bit tricky to install.
Very well made and the fitment is perfect, bought a brand new kx450f and even though I race motocross with it, I still think it's a good idea to get some protection for all that soft aluminum. Every mx bike needs a skid plate.
It looks really good. Absolute pain in the a** to mount though. I can't wait to go ride and test it out.
These are a must for any rider looking to avoid a broken engine case! These Skid Plates are great. Beautiful craftsmanship and tough as nails. They are also easy to straighten after you have used it. Devol uses good material and the welds are perfect. I gave 4 stars because one of the bolt holes was a little bit off. The plate is Aluminum so a little round file and a few strokes and it fits like a glove.
Looks and fits on my 2006 RM250 as expected. I have fairly large feet (size 11) and I've had issues with other skid plates sticking out too far and hitting it when I tried to brake. This one tucks in nicely and stays out of the way but still offers great protection.
Love the product however it will not fit on a 2011 YZ450f. There is an OEM tab that's welded on the bike that prohibits the plate from mounting properly.
I spoke with the Motosport.com staff and Devol staff. Both were great to work with. There seems to be an error with the Devol numbering system.
Devol gave the address to send the plate to and they will be sending the proper replacement. They are aware of the issue and resolving it.
Devol makes a nice product with a good amount of protection for oil filter side but also the water pump side on my Honda's.
