It's a skid plate

Comments On Apr 18, 2014:Overall I like this product. The skid plate is thick aluminum, with good welds, and the fit is good. I wish you didn't have to remove the factory skid bars to install it. I did not like the hardware, which are plain steel. This item seems overpriced to me for what you are getting in materials. If it protects your bike it would be more than worth the price though.
I spray painted the exterior black for appearance. I coated the inside with spray rubber to help with vibration and noise. I coated the S-hook fasteners with rubber tool dip. I wanted the rubber coating to protect the paint on the factory frame from being worn off.

Good, but not perfect

Comments On Mar 15, 2014:Fortunately I have gotten better at keeping my bike on the wheels so I haven't put this through a true torture test. It seems like it is capable of protecting the bike reasonably well, but there is definitely room for improvement: 1) the sides could extend just a bit higher / our. 2) more holes for air flow. SOUND: The first time I rode with this on it had a nasty hollow sound, I actually thought my water pump might be running dry... I finally realized what was making the sound so I removed it and put silicon caulk all over the engine side of it. This has helped with the weird hollow sound quite a bit, but it still sounds a little bit different that my bike did before installation.

Great Product

Comments On Mar 14, 2014:This is the 2nd Ricochet Skid Plate I have used. Also have one for a TTR230. Both are well designed, and well built. Very Sturdy! Easy to install, very good protection.

Good enough, only minor complaints

Comments On Feb 13, 2014:The skidplate does its job and has protected my cases and frame tubes from some serious abuse. With that said, the fit is a bit sloppy; it doesn't interfere with anything, but it takes some attention to detail to get it on straight and centered where it should be on the bike so it doesn't look dumb. That just irritates the perfectionist in me everytime I take it off to clean the bike. I'd have probably given 4-stars if it was just a little less expensive or if it fit just a little more precisely.

Fits perfect on a 1999 RM 250

Comments On Jan 20, 2014:Could not find a skid plate for a 1999 RM250 anywhere. Did some research on RMs and discovered the RM in 1999 has same overall specs as the 2001. Could it be the same frame? Did not know so I ordered it anyway. Fit like a glove. And no modification needed. And can still reach the drain plug on the bottom. Love it when things work out.

Excellent product

Comments On Jan 14, 2014:Ricochet skid plate installed easily on my bike. The sides of the plate angle up for more protection on the crankcase cover and clutch cover. This plate has taken some major hits and holds up nicely.

Hardware

Comments On Dec 21, 2013:Great product beside the fact I had to tap out the threads in their hardware because the bolts wouldn't thread all the way. Other than that works great
