    Quality product.
    Very good looking skid plate decently thick plastic and a good amount of fasteners to hold it to the bike. Took about 30-45 min to install. Luckily it was pretty self explanatory because the instructions did not include my bike.

    The biggest problem i have with this skid plate is that i couldn't get the screws to sit flat agains the plate. this probably won't be an issue but i feel like they could snag on things when trying to glide over it. over time mashing them may make them hard to remove.

    The wing that is supposed to protect the fly wheel cover presses against the cover which may or may not be a problem. I suppose time with tell.

    Excellent quality all around
    I had a plastic skid plate from Scorpion on my old Gas Gas that was nowhere near as good as this. The TMD skid plate is thick, burly, fits extremely well and offers good protection. It doesn't magnify the engine noise like an aluminum plate does either.

    TM Plastic Skid Plate works well
    TM Plastic Skid Plate worked well and fit properly on my 2017 KTM 150 SX. The protect is there and the coverage is fair and good enough.

    I know some people have written complaints that it's hard to get your bottom bolts going since the screws are not to long. The screws are long enough but the skid plate needs to be seated or pushed onto the bikes frame well before they bolts engage onto the provided cross bar.

    The trick to mount the bottom bolts onto the bracket that holds the skid plate into place is first, tie the bike front end down by the handle bars like your going somewhere like on a trailer or truck. This will keep you bike from falling over. Then use a bottle jack to push the skid plate up onto your bike frame. Then it's easy to bolt it on. That's the trick because if you try hold and push the skid plate onto the frame while trying to bolt it on, it's hard. You don't want to buy longer screws because it may run into your case etc. Try my method and you'll be happy that you did.

    Fits well but a PAIN to get to fit
    I swear I only got this one because I got lucky with the attachment... It floats in the frame and took me and a friend about 1.5 hours.

    Once you are beyond this it is a sweet set up.

    Tough as nails
    This skid plate is the bee's knee's. I've had it on my 2016 YZ250x for the last few years and it's withstood everything I've thrown at it. I ride at an Expert level in the deserts of southern NV (Rocky single tracks, sandwashes, ledges, waterfalls, boulders, gravel roads, silt, mountain ranges, you name it). Highly recommend it.

    TMD
    Must read directions when installing. I tried to put this on without reading and nearly gave up. Once I read the instructions installation was simple. Removal of pipe on TX 300 makes it much easier also. Great fit, great looks, great protection including shock linkage coverage. TMD continues to impress with ultra quality, ultra fit finish, ultra performance at reasonable prices.

    Does this protect the linkage on your rear suspension?
    Rodney G on Jun 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, to do that you'd have to add a bolt on piece that attaches to the shock clevis like the Bullet Proof Designs item or something such as the Enduro Engineering or Obie link guard. For the last 150 hours I've used the Obie product and prefer it compared to items I've used in the past that bolted over the linkage and shock clevis.
    I have a 2013 KTM 350 xcfw is there an oil drain hole or will I have to remove entire skid plate to change oil?
    Michael D on Mar 28, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: There is a hole but it's too small to really use. It'd be pretty easy to enlarge. I like to remove it so I can clean out all the leaves and mud.
    Would this fit a 2013 rmz250 and what is the best fitting linkage cover for this skid plate?
