  • Obie Linkage Guard for Enduro Engineering Aluminum Skid Plate


    Worth the money.

    They didn't have an option for my bike (2018 Husqvarna FE450) so I bought the FC version and with minimal modification it fits perfectly. Product itself it durable, and smooth for gliding over obstacles, protects the linkage very well.

  • Obie Extreme Linkage Guard for Enduro Engineering Aluminum Skid Plate

    Daniel in IL

    Some adjustments required to fit

    Well made product, although a little expensive for a piece of plastic. The mounting holes needed customizing, and the installation instructions on the Obie website have not been very helpful for this particular model guard. Hopefully, my photos will help guide others. The two outer holes had to be enlarged to 10mm, in order to fit the thread sleeves present on the EE skidplate. The EE linkage guard instruction sheet is showing the guard mounted below the skidplate, but I think it makes more sense for it to be sandwiched between the skidplate and the frame as shown in my photos. Going to test the durability of the product next, although I'm not expecting any issues there.

  • Obie Linkage Guard for T.M. Designworks Platic Skid Plate

    Daniel in OR

    Great protection, AWFUL to install

    Great coverage, super glad I got it! ZERO install instructions, ZERO mounting hardware or instructions, (ordered the one to go with my TMD skid plate, ZERO interface functionality between them, virtually impossible to remove or install as ll skid plate to service bike without disassembling the whole system (skid plate and obi). Fortunately I'm a very experienced problem solver, intimately familiar with hardware options. I have tools and shop...average joe can do it, but you will have to be creative (drill holes, buy special T nuts, find or manufacture screws to work between plastics). Still would get it again because it's the only good option for my linkage and it works. But Obi needs to spend some more time making these user friendly.

    Buy a skid plate with linkage guard.

    Doesn’t fit with skid plate. Would recommend buying a skid plate with a linkage guard.

  • Obie Extreme Linkage Guard for T.M. Designworks Plastic Skid Plate

    Michael in WA

    Better to buy an integrated slide plate.

    The linkage guard does what its designed to but at a hefty cost. The kit for my 300xc came with the guard, hardware and an aluminum plate retainer. Ill be honest. I feel for what they cost, is pretty steep for what you get. No complaints about the quality. If i had known it was gonna be this expensive for just the guard then I would have gone with the SXS plate instead.
