Fit perfect

Not only does it protect the engine case, but it covers the the aluminum frame rails too,a good thing.

Good fit

Pricey but it has a nice finish, fits perfect and has good hardware. Bought this for a CRF250x because I just wanted to protect the case from rocks flying up without adding weight.

Serves its purpose

The Glide plate was a lot smaller that I thought on my bike, fit was pretty good, but the Glide plate does the job it was made for.

Nice!

Almost cancelled this order to get the full coverage crf450r version. Glad I didn't, this one looks better. Also installed the matching left side (oil filter) guard. Very light, great low profile fit, and looks sick.

Lightspeed Glideplate

It looks awesome! and unlike other skid and glide plates its really easy to put on and take off...which is nice when changing oil to be able to just take it off real fast. It's a little more pricey but i think its worth it.

Great look!

easy install, great look, but doesnt feel as strong as the works connection plate. Great buy for the money! try it the plate has a carbon fiber look and matches great if you have black plastics on your bike.

A little pricey but ver strong!

i ran this on my 06 yz450f for 3 years. the skid plate held up very well since i put it threw everything. the only thing i ddont like is that if your gonna pay 105 bucks for it, its almost better to just get the aluminum 1 which will last 4 ever and is only a little more. other than that, great product. will deffinatly last and is by far the lightest skip plate!!!

NOT 4 STROKES

we run this on our 06/07 yz 125. it does not fit a 08/09 four stroke. this is the best yamaha two stroke skid plate for racing , but dont buy this for your four stroke...it dont fit.

Better than stock

This plate is lighter than the stock plate and covers a larger area.

I've had the glide plate on my bike for two years and its still holding up with no problems or damage. The glide plate lined up perfectly and was easy to attach to my bike.

For Being Light A+

I got this because the Works Connection are on the heavy-side as compared to this one which is really light. Mine got some surface cracks after about a month of riding but they did not go all the way through. Obviously this is not going to be quite as strong as an aluminum skid plate but it is light so there is a trade off. If you want to save weight go with this one.

Glide plate

I run the Light Speed Glide plate on both of my bikes and have been happy with the performance. I was skeptical that the carbon fiber would hold up under the constant abuse from the rocks of the midwest but I have been pleasantly surprised at the results. I would have liked to see the glide plate come up a little higher in the front of the Yamaha applications but the current design works just fine. Lite weight, great fit and cool looks...

Note: I also run the caliper gaurd, pump cover, heat gaurd and disc gaurd as well. All work perfectly!

My son just started to ride his rmz 250..I built it about 2 years ago. He shorted a jump and the plate tore apart. Not like he is fast but now I'm worried if I have to replace it everytime he makes a mistake while he is learning

A: I would suggest he runs an Aluminum glide plate. The aluminum plates are more durable.

Q: Will it be necessary to use the mounting hardware provided?
Over 3 years ago
for a 2013 kx450f, the bike comes stock with a chinsy plastic roost guard which is held on by four bolts that thread into tiny mounts welded to my frame. will the plate specific for my bike be pre-molded to where i will be able to just bolt onto the stock mounts or will it be necessary to use the hardware provided in order to mount the skid plate on my 2013 Kawasaki Kx450F?

A: This skid plate for your 2013 KX450 will use the stock mounting locations used with the stock skid plate. The mounting hardware is required for the models that are not equipped with a skid plate from the factory.

Q: Does this one plate really fit all these bikes?

I see under the Bikes this Part Fits link that this Glide Plate I looked up for a 2004 KX250 will fit a lot of other bikes. Is this accurate information? It says it fits yamaha, honda, kawi, etc 2 stroke and four stroke over a couple of years. Is this all for the one plate or is it different part numbers?

A: These are bike specific and I do carry it for a 04 KX250. So as long as you profile your bike correctly you will get the correct part.
