Best Skid plate for 08'... OPINIONS PLEASE!!!


Recommended Posts

After smashing my clutch cover and water pump on a rock im buying a skid plate, the best one i have seen is the Works Connection Extended coverage skid plate.๐Ÿ˜ But i can not seem to find one for my 08... This Plastic one looks like it has great coverage but the material is obviosly not so durrable...:cheers:---->http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ACERBIS-PLASTIC-SKID-PLATE-HONDA-CRF450R-CRF450X-05-08-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem5888c93620QQitemZ380252010016QQptZMotorcyclesQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

That is the same as the TT skid that I was about to recommend. Ricochet makes them for us.

The advantage with going with us is supporting this awesome community!

Oh yeah and we are less $$$$$$$$$$$$$ ๐Ÿ˜

OP,

If you want to go with that or Flatland/Works Connection, we can hook you up.

I wouldn't recommend the plastic Acerbis. I have one on my '07 and I'm not really a fan. I had to enlarge the holes to line it up and trim the right side to clear my rear brake. Not a real big deal, but after only a month or so the back flap that hooks into the frame got about a 3-4 inch crack running towards the front of the plate. I certainly won't be buying another one.
