Just OK

Unit seems to fit poorly onto the swing arm mounting points, had to use long bolts to pull skid plate mounts over to the swing arm mounting points more than 1/4 inch! was and still am somewhat afraid the swing tabs may break off. Have not used the quad since installed.

Overall 4 out of 5 stars

fitment is great. as with most AC products, the welds are rough and edges can be sharp. But looks after 1 ride doesnt matter on a skid plate.

Good Skid plate

put it on my 2014 yfz450r and it fit no drilling or further fab needed.
took it out on the trail and bent both plates into chain and brake rotor.
easy fix on the trail just bend it back but may need further fab work on the structural aspect.

Not impressed

I purchased this plate in hopes that it would protect the rear swing arm of my LTR450. When came in I went out in my garage to install it but found out that it does not fit AT ALL!!! Its pushes against the disc of my breaks and still needs to be sucked in a half an inch to be tight. is taking good care of me though and although I would not recommend this product to some one who has a LTR450, I do however recommend it to someone with a different ride. The product looks and feels very strong!! The rivets could have been counter sunk so they dont ride against the chain too. Bottom line, if it had fit I would be stoked!

Wouldn't buy it!!!

First off I had to drill the holes out bigger because it wouldn't match up with my swingarm. Second I had to cut around five inches off of the chain and sprocket side because the chain was hitting the front of the skid plate(my chain is properly tightened). So after about a hour or so of cutting, grinding, and drilling it turned out pretty nice. In my opinion when you pay that much money for a part that is supposed to be a custom fit it should FIT!!!! Go pro armor!!!!

Good protection, but low quality

Like most of the other people that installed this skid, mine would not line up with the mounting holes.I had to enlarge all four holes some then pry it into place. The protection is very good, but the chain makes a ton of noise slapping on the lower edge of the skid and the rivits that hold the chain guide strip in place. Adjusted my chain as tight as i could safely go, but it still slaps. I'm a little dissapointed, but at least my rotor and sproket are safe.

Great Buy!

This is a stout and light protection plate for your rotor, chain, and brake disk. I painted mine black. I roughed it with sander, coated grey primer, then spray painted it glossy black. One problem though, one of the pre-drilled holes didn't line up with stock drilled (06 yfz 700) holes in chassis. I had to shave the edge of hole with a drill bit to line it up. With that, it could have cost 25 bucks less...

will this work on a ltz250's shaft drive instead of a chain?

If you have an 04-09 LTZ250 Quad Sport Z250 shaft driven, than this swingarm skid plate will fit.

How come this is made to bolt on the inside, where as the OEM is bolted on the outside of the swing arm?
Swing arm metal hits the plate and the holes don't line up if bolted on the inside for the blaster and also the outside bolt hole metal is 1/4" off too sloppy. Is this really for the Blaster? The wear strip is way off too.

Will this work with an aftermarket swingarm?
I have an Eyeball Engineering swingarm on the back of my Raptor 660 that is +2 inches. Will this mount up to it?

This will only mount on a stock OEM swingarm. You might contact the mfg of the swingarm you have to see if they offer a swingarm protector to fit.

Do they have a full swing arm skid plate?

This plate covers the drive components on the swing arm. Other than that I don't have one that will cover the entire swing arm.
