First off, the bolt holes did not line up. I had to beat the skid into place with a hammer then use a screw driver to line up the holes, bending and tweaking the skid plate. Once I got one bolt in on the brake side, i attempted to get the sprocket side bolts in, they barely squeeze in when you put on the large washer like they tell you too. Next, once the bolts went in, i realized you need the STOCK back nuts that hold the bolts in. Well this is a problem if youre switching from another aftermarket skid that has its own bracket with nuts welded on there. I acquired the factory nuts and after hours of trying to hold the nut still with an open end wrench, because the chain and sprocket are in the way and you can even get a finger in to hold it still, i couldnt get the bolt to thread on. The design absoulety sucks. I WOULDNT RECOMMEND THIS SKID. ITS A PIECE OF JUNK. There are other skids for less money that bolt on within minutes.
