Works Connection skid plate.

I received shipment of the skid plate really quickly! It was a perfect fit on my CRF250x. Very easy to install. If you have basic mechanical abilities, you should not have any problems with this product. Highly recommended.

Nice Product!

No fitment issues, welds are perfect. Seems strong enough to protect frame and engine against anything I plan on throwing at it. Polishes nicely.

Nice skid plate

Very nice skid plate, not an ugly shovel head bolted on the bottom.

Great product

I purchased this for my new 2012 Honda CRF 250X and it fit perfectly. I was easy to install (the instructions could have been better i.e. pictures) and I am no mechanic. It took me about 30 minutes to install and it looks great on the bike. I think it looks better than many of the other styles of skid plates and offers a ton of protection for engine components. I highly recommend this product.

Works Connection Off Road Skid Plate

Installed on 2009 Honda CRF 250X. It's very well made and fits with very close tolerances. I had to hand-file an aluminum edge on one side of the plate to get it to fit. It looks great and adds way more protection than the 2 dinky stock plastic pieces. I can even remove oil filter cap and change filter without taking skid plate off. Expensive, but worth it.

Perfect fit and Great protection!!

I have this mounted on a 2009 Honda CRF250x. This Skid Plate fits perfect! Easy to mount! It's well designed and protects EVERYTHING!! It's super strong, great for Hawaii Terrain ( HUGH rocks and roots). Although a little pricey, but you get what you paid for!! shipped it the same day I ordered it (5/25/2011)!! I received it in 2 days (5/27/2011)!! It was shipped thru UPS. Now that is FAST!!!! Especially to Hawaii. Thanks, I will definitely order again!

Well Worth the money!!!

Heavy Duty! It wasn't to bad to install, but you will need some help. On the crf450x 09, it makes the engine alot louder, but don't worry you will get used to it. Went on a porker run last weekend and it got put to the test on black rock, it is the best one you can buy!! Well worth the money.

Very well made product

love this skid plate. protects all major parts, fits like a glove, and it looks awesome.

Great product. fits good on my crf250r Bin over a couple of trees and its holding up with out a scratch looks good and easy to install. I would recommend this to every one. the last thing you want is a rock in your casings so it pays for its self

Best Skid Plate I've seen...

Doesn't have that "snow shovel" look - it's really tucked up but covers everything exceptionally well. It fits my CRF450X perfectly I was surprised how well it fit and the aluminum is thick and very strong looking. There is enough room to still remove the oil filter; granted it’s a little tight getting the filter in and out but not bad at all.

Full Protection

This skid plate is easy to install, looks great and most important provides full protection to your bike's underbelly as well as water pump & oil filter areas.

Excellent product

Put it on an 09 250x. is a very strong and durable skid plate and the price is amazing. everywhere else it would cost me $200. great price for a great product

Fits like custom stuff

Nice tight fit. Installation takes a bit of trial and error, but this is a well designed product with close tolerances. Side wings are in close but allow access to essentials. I bent the oil filter access (left side) in a really hard get-off, but it saved any damage. Center glide plate is very strong.

Super solid

I bought this skid plate a few weeks ago. I was rippin down a trail and wrecked really hard in a rock section. Now on the stock crf 250's they have a wimpy little plastic guard. This guard takes the place of it and I am glad. I would have had to buy a new half of a case if I wouldn't have bought this guard.

Excellent Quality & Fit

This skid plate is very solid, well constructed, and fit perfect. Thick aluminum with perfect welds, great installation instructions. High price, but sometimes you get what you pay for. This skid plate will provide as much protection and one possibly could.

Best one piece

Finally a complete one piece skid plate that works as well as it looks. This plate recently rode from Tecate, Mexico to the Bay of Gonzaga.(350 mi.) thru some of the toughest Baja roads. It came back scratched but protected my CRF450X perfectly. Well built and worth every penny!.

Worth Every Penny

I've had the Works Connection Off Road Skid Plate on my bike for about a year and a half now. I ride a lot of single track in the Sierras, so most of the obstacles consist of Basalt and Granite boulders. The first time I high centered on a big piece of Granite, the Skid Plate paid for itself. Its rugged construction has kept me going through some pretty gnarly trails and has protected my engine without a doubt more than once. It's not too heavy and easy to get on and off for maintenance once you get used to it. If you race in the desert or ride hard in the mountains give this skid plate a try, you won't be sorry.

Over 8 years ago Location: Portland, OR
A: It does have a drain hole in the skid plate to access the drain bolt so I'm sure you can change the oil with out removing it but if you want to keep it clean and if you have the time I would say just remove it.
