I need a serious skid plate for my CRF450R due to the extreme trails that I abuse myself and my poor bike on. I've been looking at many different kinds of skid plates discovering that most will not protect the sides of my engine during a side impact on rock. The Works Connection Off Road Skid plate looks very tough, seems to have decent reviews that I've seen but I would like to hear from anyone here who has actual experience with one. For $200 I want to be sure it is all it should be. I've contacted Works Connection and they've confirmed that the model they make for the CRF450X will fit my CRF450R with only a possible small issue around the break lever. Any help would be appreciated thanks.
