Works connection skid plates are my number one choice.
Does the job as it should. Works well over rocks and logs. Extremely durable and easy to access the drain plug. Provides good airflow and the mounting system fits well, doesn't make noise or vibrate. Good quality welds. Wish the guards stuck out 3 inches longer to cover more of the water pump and oil cover. Covers "just enough". I could make one better than this.
I rate 9.3-10 because its almost perfect.
EASY install, the rear bolt holes lined up perfectly on my 2015 KX450F. But even if the holes didn't line up, it would been an easy fix with a drill. Definitely a must have if you ride woods / trails. Comes with a chunk of foam - which everyone recommends running in muddy conditions... I've found that running the foam only holds the mud in - which makes your bike heavier and harder to clean.
My 2nd ride with the skid plate, I decided to test out its strength in the woods... It took a serious beating. I was slamming my bike over fallen trees, over rocks and through deep whoops... Until the skid plate worked TOO well. The plate deflected a thick branch up and into my radiator hoses where I lost all coolant because of a sheared hose, but I was completely ok with it because I knew I made a good investment and I was gonna be able to buy some sweet new radiator hoses.
**DEFINITELY RUN LOCK TIGHT ON EACH OF THE SUPPLIED BOLTS**
This was a major pain in the to install. 2014 crf450r. But once on it servs it purpose.
Excellent craftsman ship. I can get access to the drain plug without removing the skid plate. It looks cool with all the holes!!!!! The only bad thing is the instructions for installation are sub par.
I ride single track in the Arizona desert in some very rugged terrain. This was an easy choice for me and for protecting my converted Suzuki 450 RMZ. I highly recommend this skid plate for you bike.
Nice product! easy instal. I would buy extra foam insert, they don't give quite enough with skid plate.
It has great protection... but it didnt fit correctly! I couldnt use one of the brackets because it wouldnt fit between my motor and frame.. but i said oh well it was tight enough haha. Its still holding up just fine!!
easy to install. looks good. does its job. a must have for woods riding.
Not only does it look good, but most important it is strong, does the job and well worth the money. Thanks motosport for all you do!
Bolted up fairly easy. Great protection without noticing added weight.
