I really like how tough this plastic is. Mounting it to my 2017 Ktm sx-f 450 was simple. It covers the frame and comes up to protect the clutch/ignition cover. You can leave the skid plate on while changing your oil too.

Well first, the good. The skid plate itself fit the bike very well and is indeed thick enough to tackle almost anything. The orange color matched my KTM pretty well.
Ok now the bad.... The mounting system is the worst I have ever dealt with. It was a nightmare to fit the front mount. I, just like one of the other guys that reviewed this, had to make a trip to the hardware store to get much longer bolts to make it work. The front mount needs to go exactly where the front engine mounts are located. BAD design. This is the first time I have purchased a Cyrca product and will be my last. After this thing is done, I'm going back to my Devol!
I have a 2013 ktm 250 sx and the bolts that came with the skid plate are to short. the bottom bolts just barley thread and the top mount bolts are not even close so have to get longer bolts at the hardware store to make it work. The only way that I can see it working with the bolts provided is to bend the mounting brackets considerably and I dont think thats a good thing. overall the plastic is pretty thick and it will look nice on the bike once im able to mount it.
Motor case coverage is good, plastic durable. Mounting brackets kind of cheesy, you still need to remove the plate when you change oil if you don't want it to fill up with dirty oil. I change the hex bolts to 8mm head so i can use t-wrench. Wish that cycra would do that with new kits.
