Not only does it protect the engine case, but it covers the the aluminum frame rails too,a good thing.
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.
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.
looks good an works great best carbon fiber one out there
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
looks good an is very light an strong an goes on easy.. but it did not cover up all of my motor casins on my 06 kx250f
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.
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.
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!
