Hyde Skid plate fit?


Recommended Posts

Anyone using a Hyde skid plate? If so, how did it fit? I tried to install one today and no way! It doesn't seem to fit the left side if the motor. It's marked KX450, but the part # is the same for a KX and KLX. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I have the new Acerbis one- same as the Hyde, I believe.

Never had that type- always aluminum.

I pick the bike up this weekend (hopefully) so I should know what it's like soon.

I will say that Hyde's customer service is TERRIBLE.

I really can't recommend them- never said that about any company before.

Sent an email to Hyde and received this response - "These plate can be slightly out of shape for shipping, usually take there normal shape when they warm up from the engine heat.

Have you tried installing the rear bolts finger tight and the putting the bike on a stand ?" The plate was cold, so I warmed it up, used a jack and it went on with just a little cussing:foul:... Not that bad really. I wish it would have had that info in the package.... Oh well. It's on and looks fine.
