    Great skid plate for XT250.
    The holes lined up perfectly and installation was straightforward using four supplied bolts and washers to mount to pre-threaded holes on the frame.

    There is a hole beneath the drain plug so removal of the skid plate is not needed for an oil change. That’s a nice touch.

    Seems like a pretty solid skid plate and it looks great. Very happy with this purchase.

    XR 650L Skid Plate
    This fit my 2012 Honda XR 650L perfectly. Plenty thick protection. And has the necessary drain bolt. Vented in the front to allow airflow. I did my research on these before buying and chose this carefully. Buy this! You will not regret I promise! Great quality.

    Worth the money
    I picked up this skid plate to protect the engine of my daughter's Honda CRF 7O. The skid plate went on with no problems and seems to be very durable. The best part of the skid plate is the 70 will not sit on a bike stand. I would highly recommend this very anyone with a 70 or who want's solid protection for their bike.

    Really liked this skid plate has full coverage of the motor and first ride I took with it I counted 8 rock hit the plate, so I guess it works great. Only thing is that it echos back at you while riding

    Protects well, doesn't look good doing it
    Fit my 2000 KTM 200EXC fairly well, and is the only option for my older bike. I'm happy that the plate is thick (~3/16") and still surprisingly light weight.
    Finish is not great, however. The aluminum was very raw, the welds were sloppy (though strong- bead was very prominent and not dressed at all), and the layout lines for bending weren't removed. I expected a little more finish to the product and after test-fitting, dressed the welds and polished the plate. I know it's a skidplate but it should at least be smooth to go over logs easier.
    Installation is a bear. There are four clamps that don't hold themselves to the frame. Once one clamp is loosely installed and the plate is held near the bike it's much easier to get the remaining three.
    The clamps themselves use a locking nut- good idea- but they are the kind that permanently damage the bolt threads. Also, the bolts are Torx heads. Not a big deal, but why not use hex keys?
    Overall I would recommend the plate since it'll do it's job and keep engine cases in tact. Coverage is great and doesn't interfere with shifting or braking although it looks like it will. It doesn't.

    Great fit, good protection, great price. Good choice for the klr650.
    Bought this for my klr650 before heading to ride the COBDR. Good coverage, much more durable than the stock plastic one. Highly recommend getting the Tusk low profile drain plug along with any skid plate. Hardware wasn’t the best quality, but the skid plate itself seems pretty tough!

    I'm wanting to install this on a 2008 KLR 650 with the Tusk Crash bars installed. Will this fit my ride without having to take the crash bars off to install? Thanks for the help!
    Matthew K on May 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have the tusk crash bars on my 2017 stock KLR650 and it went together very smoothly.
    There is no listing for a 2017 KTM 690 Enduro. Will the item for the 2016 fit?
    Thomas F on Mar 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have checked with Ricochet Off Road and it will fit the 2017 model.
    What's the difference between the aluminum skit plate and the anodized black skid plate??? Also I have a 2013 Kawasaki klr 650 and I installed the tusk crash bars.. Is there any other skid plate that will fit with the tusk crash bars??
    Thank you
    Michael F on Nov 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Anodizing is a simple electrochemical process developed more than 75 years ago that forms a protective coating of aluminum oxide on the surface of the aluminum. The lifetime of the finish is proportional to the thickness of the anodic coating applied.
    what kind of clamps doe's this use ?
    BARRY K on Mar 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: ON the WR250R it has no clamps. It uses the 4 bolts into mounting holes in the frame.
    I searched all feedback but couldn’t find anything specific to my bike.

    I have a 2017 Yamaha TTR230. Will this fit? But more so any mods needed? Thanks in advance for any answers or advice.
    Ryan I on Nov 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: got it for my ttr230 also 2017. will fit but either missing hardware and need to drill frame or I don't understand its install. If you figured it out please let me know.

    How does this skid plate work on a Yamaha super tenere?
    A shopper on Jun 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I don't know about a Super Tenere but, on tight twisty stuff with roots and rocks, it worked so well on my KDX200, I got another for my CRF230F. It's way cheaper than a busted crank case!
    Does this work with Tusk crash bars on a 2012 klr 650?
    Nathan G on Aug 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It works on my 2008 KLR650, which is also a Gen 2 KLR
    Can you get replacement mounts for this skid plate?
    A shopper on Jul 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I haven't needed replacement mounts since I've initially put it on. It's been very secure and I've been grateful it's been there on many occasions. So far I've only had to tighten them once and I used a thread locker to help.
    I just had this delivered for my 2012 we. What are the brackets for? Does this not just bolt into the original threaded holes where the plastic one was?
    Sam S on Apr 11, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: On my bike the holes do not line up. The brackets wrap over the top of the frame rails and the bolt runs up through the skid plate into the bracket. I actually wound up mounting mine in place with the engine removed because I had hard time getting things lined up around the engine case.
    If the original holes line up, definitely use those.
    Other than that, it really is a really good quality unit.
    Does installation on KLR 650 require any modifications to the plate or fasteners?
    Eldon H on Mar 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: My KLR 605 is a 2016, I did not have to do any modifications and I used provided hardware. It took a bit of time and patience, just take it slow, Just like most anything that a person has not installed before. More: the stock oil drain plug does protrude slightly past the new guard. You will want to buy the low head drain plug.
    I have an ‘08 KLX 450R. The sub frame is square. I noticed in the pictures that the brackets are rounded. Do they come squared to fit the subframe on the KLX?
    Grady H on Nov 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: For the one I bought they were round and no square brackets were included. But why use the brackets if you can locat and drill hole in the plate to match the frame you should be able to go without the brackets. I only used a couple of the brackets

    Alternatively you could shape the brackets with a vise and hammer

    Good luck
    I have a 2008 KLX 450R with a boyesen waterpump installed. Will this fit?
    Grady H on Oct 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I’m sorry, I’m not able to answer, meaning I used the skid plate on a KLR 650 2008. However, I would think it would the Boyesen pump is very similar to a stock pump in the over all width.
    Will this fit a 2004 crf230f with out cutting or drilling?
    A shopper on Jul 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: when ever you purchase this Item for your bike it will fit I purchased one for my KTM. Perfect fit no drilling required it has clamps that hold it onto the frame from my experience racing cross country it is advised to use some lock tight at least blue lock tight
    installation - do i need to remove the small front bar on the xr650l before installing this skid plate? i cannot see where the screws underneath connect to? is this a requirement for the xr650l install? Anyone have pics on where they put the clamps they can show me?

    thanks

    tj
    Terry J on May 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It has been a while sense I installed the plate. I remember it lining up with no issue what so ever. I would remove any factory skid plates or protection this plate should bolt directly to the frame. If it does not send it back you might have been sent the wrong one. Good luck mate!
    okay , has anyone used this skidlplate on a RM250 ,if so what kind of clamps ?
    BARRY K on Mar 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I installed one on a 06rm. The clamps are like conduit clamps. A circle cut in half that wraps around the frame and a tapped flange that screws into the plate itself. Real simple to install just a pain to hold it in position and start the bolts.
    Will it fit a 2006 klx300 ?

    I have 2005 kdx200 and it says it will fit but I'm wondering if it'll wrap around the engine like other bikes. Will it?
    Ghent T on Jul 21, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it has some small wings that deflect debris pretty good
    I have a 2016 Yamaha XT 250 (Duel Sport) and I just ordered and received a Ricochet skid plate on line though you guys. However it doesn't fit. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I bought the bike new from a dealer here in California.
    There is a funny looking part that is welded to frame right where the upper left hand corner of the plate wants to go. It looks like a filter of some kind about 8 inches in circumference and about 5 inches tall with a couple of small rubber hoses going into it. One of the hoses comes from the gas tank near the top of the tank.

    Could this be something required on California bikes only? They have a few rules and regulations that most other states do not require. 'The plate looks great but it wont fit with that filter-type part there. I am wondering if someone makes a skidplate that will accommodate this or is the filter something that can be removed?
    Steve J on Jul 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: From what I have found, California does have different emissions regulations so they add parts to the bike to keep the emissions down. This would need to be removed in order for the skid plate to work but that might cause issues if you are continuing to run the bike in California. Unfortunately I dont show that we carry anything else that would fit with the extra parts for the California models.
