06 CR 250 UFO side-plate's---non vented ?

Recommended Posts

So, I ordered UFO side-plate's for an 06 CR 250 and the vent area is NOT cut out,,it is solid,,and I'm a bit confused as to why. I don't mind using the Dremel to open them, but was wondering if anyone ran into this from UFO ? Or, am I missing something and UFO did this for a performance reason ?

Actually I was curious to see what it looked like. I google imaged it anyways. Yeah I'm sure it's easy to do but still a lil cheesy for what you pay while other companies are exact replicas for about the same price. Well I guess I'm going with Acerbis when it's time for new plastics.

Yep,  I agree on cheesy,,UFO has always been a first choice for aftermarket but they somewhat dropped the ball on the panel's,,oh well,,,I guess we learned something out of this thread....Hello Acerbis... :thumbsup:

isnt acerbis more expensive?

For the price the UFO is fine.

But yah, a bit cheesy.

More time and effort has been spent typing on this forum than it takes to open up the panels.

Having said that, i threw my last set on quickly and didnt cut it out till after my ride. Didnt affect the performance but i was trail riding and not hard on the gas.

Off roaders may want to leave it pluged to keep excess water and mud out of the box.

Personally I'd rather go acerbis, but they don't make a rear fender in white. So I could either buy a white fender from ufo and hope the colors match, or go all ufo. Shame about the indented vents.

I think maybe they did this because the stock side plates that came from the factory have those black covers that have two screws holding them in from the inside.  I don't know why they are there.  Have never found the answer.  I've still got my stock plates and I leave the covers on.  I've felt no performance difference either way.
