The plate does what it's supposed to do but every single zip tie that came with it broke. I had to use my own zip ties. Seems to work great other than that though.

The skid plate is fine, but could use the open holes for bolting it to the front of the frame in the factory skid plate mounting locations. It instead uses cheap zip-ties (that more than half of broke while zipping) and leaves the threaded holes unused and open to dirt/debris to get into the threads. It also blocks the case oil drain plug and the resivoir drain plug so you have to cut the ties and remove it after every 1-2 rides. Looked cheesy to me and not as good as the factory aluminum plate, in my honest opinion. Save your cash for something else.
This is ok but I will upgrade to an aluminum one later. the plastic is thick but it is held on by zip ties.
Small and light but can take some abuse!!
Installed on my 300xc and fit was great! Not a full coverage skid plate, but works extremely well protecting the bottom of your frame and engine...held on only by zip ties which are provided, so not good to take on and off, but I never take it off, so it's not a big deal to me... the zip ties hold it very securely so far after a month of riding
Thought I was buying an aluminum skid plate but it's plastic and is held on by zip ties???
Oh well. Next.
The installation was super quick and easy. I rode 2 races and it is great so far!
Inexpensive but does the job. I cut away enough area around the oil drain plug so I don't have to remove it to change oil. Was pretty easy. Also if you need more "special" zip ties, they are the same ones used by Heating /AC installers. You can buy a bag of 25 for around $10 at either Home Depot or a local HVAC supply house.
Works well durable but zip ties break easy
Fit and looks are very good. For the price I believe it is very good. The one thing I didn't like it the heavy duty zip ties break before you can tighten it up. If you do order this, have a small supply of new zip ties standing by, you will need them.
I was looking for something to replace my carbon fiber skid as it was getting some age but I wasn't completely happy with the wear of my carbon fiber, so I went with with skid. I mean why not? $38 vs $80+ other skid plates. It's a solid plate, however. Very large heavy duty zip ties hold the plate onto the bike? After hitting a few logs and just lifting the bike onto the stand the ties are getting some decent wear and I'm sure it won't be more than 6 months and I'll be buying another skid plate or at least ties. It came with 4 spares, but still. I think they could have done better than zip ties. The plate it's self is solid and I'm very happy with, I just wasn't expecting it to be held on by zip ties.
