TT Skid Plate

Im thinking of buying the Thumper Talk skid plate for a klx 300r. I have an 07 but they only list up to 06, will it work. Does anyone have a pic of what it exactly looks like on the bike, there pics show other bikes. It also seems like a good price compared to other brands, is it as good?

I dont have a pic of my skid plate on my bike but I will tell you it fit well. I'd recommend it and buy it again. If there were not so much snow and so cold (0-20) I'd dig the bike out and photo it for you but its in the back of the garage...

Rereading your post I see you have an 07, I dont know if the 07 is any different than the earlier model.

So does it have the problem of reflecting the engine noise up to the rider like others I read about.

Oh Ya, you will notice a difference. But its something you will get used too. I have the ricochet skid plate on my 07 300. Haven't seen what the TT one is. Can post some pics if you want?

I was thinking some of that dyna mat might help with the noise, but when I get it I will see how it mounts and then see if I need the dyna mat.

I tried foam, extra thick spray on truck bed liner. Didn't help. I rode my buddies wr450 they are a lot noisier than the klx. you get used to it. Any thing you put between will collect rocks, mud. Makes it hard to keep clean.

      Hello TT, I am currently going to replace the rear shock on my 2003 KLX125L (same thing as a DRZ125L with green plastics) and i would like to know if the KX100 shock bolts right in direct fit on the STOCK swing arm? i have searched around and haven't got a straight forward answer to my question for the stock swinrgarm and i know about the dr_drz thread for his DRZ but he's also using a KX swing arm. Just wanted to know if it's a direct fit besides removing upper chain roller or if there's any machining need done. Thank you.

      Hi, I am looking to get my first dirt bike, female 5' 2" 125lbs.. I have experience riding quads, and a little experience just playing around on pit bikes and kids bikes.. Checking out the CRF 125, KLX 140, and TTR 125.. They all seem like a good place to start, especially being short and new to the sport. I think ill pick up riding pretty quick but want a bike thats gonna be a good starting point, not to big/tall/heavy, yet reliable and fun.. Ive looked at the CRF and KLX so far, I like the idea of a little extra power with the klx.. but like the kick start option of the CRF and in general kinda like Hondas.. Another friend recommended the TTR so just want opinions/comparisons and input from anyone willing, thanks so much!

      I have a 1999 KLX300R which I bought this past April (2017). I only ever ride it on the weekends for no more than an hour (time constraints). Since I bough it, it has always ran hot. The oversized aftermarket pipe it has constantly heats and burns my leg, just from those hour rides. I've dropped it twice and both times the coolant boiled afterward, but it doesn't boil when I just riding it normally. Just this past weekend (late July), I went riding with some friends and put some hard hours on it. As I was coming in for a break I pulled in the clutch and the engine immediately stopped and locked up. I got off and tried to kick it over but it wouldn't budge. I let it cool down then rolled it back and forth in 6th gear to free it up. It starts and runs smoothly now, but there sounds and feels like there is something rattling around in the top of the cylinder.
       
      What should I do? Can and should I try to swap another engine into it? What could the problem be? broken piston ring? broken valve/shim?
