Skid Plates

+2 :rocker: and :finger: to all my local dealers/shops trying to rape me for 150 for what looks like pretty much the same thing.
 
I run a Works Performance skid on the 450 and a GYTR water pump guard. So far it has worked well.
 
Hyde is good stuff, if you can get it. MANY stories about making payment and then not getting the part for months, no emails, no returned phone calls, etc. Some get them the next week after the order and more dont. They are made in SA or AZ or something and the importer is not too reliable.

Hence the company name "HYDE".........as in come find me!!! :smirk:
 
Hey I read an article that was talking about making sure the front of the skid plates had holes in them for added air and cooling. What are your thoughts on this?
 
Flatland is definitely the way to go.:thumb: I have their skid plate and rad guards together as as set. Last time I checked, if you buy both at the same time there was a discount.:thumb:

Yeah, the head and case could use as much air for cooling as they can get..."refer to the pic on the 1st post" on this thread...it mounts up a little semi-blocking the head...."

If you look at the Yamaha plates by them there is not holes.
