It'll work

I bought this for my 07 RM 250. The plate is perfectly cut to fit under my bike. The only complaint I have is that the little "wings" that wrap around the frame are a little too small. They wouldn't wrap around the bar without adding a lot of force. I felt like I was going to snap them in half. Luckily, they didn't snap and I got them snugged down. You might be thinking, "nah, this guy is just a wuss. They are supposed to be tight." Well, not this tight. I have cracked metal before with less pressure in similar situations. But overall, I like the product and would purchase again. Next time though, I would probably take a dremel to the "wings and open them up a smidgen.

WC Skid Plate

Simple install, had to grind one of the clamps a bit to fit, but it was not a big deal. Would buy again for a 2 stroke.

Brilliant design, looks cool, easy to install!

Wonderful design, does not interfere with other frame parts or rear brake and gear shift lever. Has a hole to remove drain plug for oil through.

Very easy to install and remove if necessary.

Buy it!!

Is a great glide plate for my son's kx65. It is good protection for the motor from rocks etc. I would recomend this product to anybody.

Great Plate for the Price

You won't find a better plate for the price, not quite as light as the carbon fiber ones but its close.

Great skid plate

feels really durable and the drain hole access is in the perfect spot.

Excellent product, however...

This is an excellent price for a skid plate, and the skid plate itself is excellent quality, however... The plate may not provide the protection some may be looking for, mine (different for every bike) literally only protects the case, not the frame and not the sides of the engine like some plates do. INSTALLED IN LESS THAN A MINUTE!! Easiest thing I've ever done to my bike. I have an 03 yz125.

Didn't like the mounting

I tried this plate but didn't like the way it mounted. I sent it back and bought the Devol. The Devol was more $ but worth it.

Good for it's fit...

this doesn't offer any wrap around protection, but it's a good fit and does well protecting where it is. Good for moderate riding, but not extreme.

Works connection glide plate.

A complete system with all you need in the box! A low price to pay compared to a broken case! If you ride or race at a track with rock you will at sometime get a damaged case. Simple to install it as a hole for acces to your drain plug.

Great Product

Very easy to install and does the job.

Good protection

Good protection but you add rigidity to the bike's chassis. Also makes it more difficult to change oil unless you remove it. Makes a mess. Overall, it is a good skidplate.

Grand Lake, CO

My yz125 fits this good. Although you need to cut a hole in the foam (provided) for the oil drip, it is good protection, looks cool, and easy to install.

A must have

I believe that a good skid plate is one of those must have items for anyone that rides trails, even if only once in a while. I have put mine to the test, on the underside of my bike there are some pretty good size groves and dents from rocks and what ever else hit it. However I did not like the foam peice that came with it, all it did was get realy heavy and soak up mud, so i took it out.

A: This attaches to the frame of the bike, and if you have the bolts and bracket attached securely this should add any vibrations or noise.

A: If you tighten it down well and keep it tight it will not vibrate at all.

Q: How does it mount, and what does it mount to?
Over 8 years ago
MotoSport Staff Expert
Over 8 years ago
A: Depending on the type of bike would determine how it mounts. Typically these include brackets that loop on the frame and screw down to the glide plate. Usually bike come with a cheap plastic glide plate, so this would take its place and use some of the mounting screws.

Over 6 years ago Location: Temecula,CA
A: there are brackets that hang off of the frame that the skid plate attatches to, and when the bolts are tightened it clamps to the frame.

MotoSport Staff
Over 8 years ago Location: Portland, OR
A: This glide plate includes the foam insert, if you wanted you can always pick up a spare piece. It's called Helix Skid Plate Foam.
Over 7 years ago
A: The foam comes with the skid plate.

Q: Does this fit a 2007 ktm 200xc?
Over 8 years ago
If it does fit, does mud go between this and the engine easily? and if so is it easy to get mud out?
MotoSport Staff
Over 8 years ago Location: Portland, OR
A: Yes this fits that bike.. As far as mud goes it does get between the frame and the glide plate but you can buy a foam insert that goes between the frame and the glide plate to help keep the mud out. If mud does get between there all you have to do is spray it out with the pressure washer.
Over 6 years ago Location: longview, tx
A: yes this will fit your bike if you order the one for it, and skip plate foam is included which goes between the skid plate and the bottom of your engine.
