I really like the E-Line Carbon Fiber stuff. its pricey but is tougher than a two dollar steak!!
Travace this is the Skid Plate that I just added to my 2010 KTM 450 EXC. I had the same skid plate on my 2008 KTM 450 EXC. Flatland Racing is where I got them from

Picture of skid plate
I see the front is held in with bolts, same on the underside? On my 400 the skidplate was held on with clamps, a real pain in the ass to take off and install. I have an XR's only bolt on skid plate on the 650, much easier to take off and on for maintenance. And it's taken some good whacks, no reliability issues with the bolts.
Buy the right one dork. What is wrong with your old man? I guess he is just a post whore anymore.
J/K ya know.
Unless you actually spent the hard earned money you made yourself, I would just give your OLD man shit about getting the wrong one.
