Prototype Skid Plate...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, my Dad and I just got done making a skid plate for my sister's XR250R, We made it out of 18 gauge stainless steel and we cut it up with a friends plasma cutter. We also trashed about half a dozen drill bits trying to drill holes in the darned thing. :thumbsup:

When we get back from our weekend camping with the bikes my Dad wants to re-make it out of aluminum stock. I think it will be better aluminum, At least that way we can drill some air holes in it.

Here are the pics...

Cool Dude, I'd make it out of aluminum and drill holes to let the water and mud drain out. I'd love to have the keys to the Stang in the background of the first pic for the night :thumbsup: Nice!

One thing I'd have to suggest is some wings to protect the oil lines/case. I can distinctly recall hitting a rock so hard with the side of the plate once, and knowing it would have ripped off the oil filter if I hadnt had a skidplate :thumbsup:.
