Plastic Skid Plate

Recommended Posts

Hi what brands of plastic skid plates are you using?  

AXP, TMD, KTM power parts, SXS.  Anything that I missed?  Looking for some recommendations

I hear good and bad things about the Acerbis skid plates.  Are they bomb proof or will they rip to shreds after a few woods rides or rocks?  After doing some research I can buy the KTM metal plate cheaper than what the plastic ones are selling for.  I dont want to add weight with a metal plate, but cost is somewhat a factor in what I want to get.

Not sure where you ride but that's some good information to file away

I tried out the AXP Racing skid plate from Slavens.  Looks beefy, but the installation is tough because the rear 'clips' fit extremely tight.

I have the TMD plastic one. I like that its quiet- you dont hear "ping ping ping" with rocks dinging off of it. Its lightweight and protects the side cases slightly. Its not as sleek or good looking as an enduro engineering plate for example, and possibly not as durable in the long run? I'm 80% happy with it.

OEM for me. 

Get the foam for underneath too... keeps rocks n' shit from rattling around in there.
