    Great bang for your buck!
    Skid plate is very robust yet looks awesome, it will definitely stop rocks and roots from bashing your frame and cases. For the price it's definitely a good buy! I would definitely buy it again...

    Not sure why you would spend more on the others. It looks and fits really well for a lot less money.

    Plan on disconnecting header for install. I did not have to remove completely.

    Claiming it protects you linkage is a stretch but you could get an extending plastic guard and still spend less than others that don't have linkage protection either.

    Fits tight & secure.
    The skid plate is great. It fits much better on my 2017 KTM 450 sxf wirh the new mounting bracket than with the mounting scheme used on the 2016 KTM.

    It's not a link guard..
    First technical ride on new bike, big chip out of my linkage which will cost me 200 to replace. Should have bought an actual linkage guard. It does not even come close to covering it... I wonder what they were thinking. For moto it would be fine, but it's false advertising or incompetence to claims it's a linkage guard.

    Great skid plate
    I have this on my 2017 KTM 450sxf. One bolt to take on and off. I've raced with it and it worked very well. Highly recommend, especially at this price.

    Does its job
    It is heavy but if you put enough holes in it you can reduce the weight close to 50%. I mistakenly bought this for my FC350 and it was made for a FC450 and i was able to make it work by turning the front mounting bracket upside down and had to bend it a little to get the bracket to fit between the frame engine mounts. It is strong and really protects the engine cases.

    Great Dispatcher from Acerbis
    What a great value! Really strong material and absolutely great coverage around your engine. Also, a linkage guard! So many nice looking color schemes and is easy to install. The one bolt makes it easy to install and take off when your performing maintenance on your bike.

    Does this skid plate have holes to access the drain plugs on a 2017 Husqvarna FC 450?
    Ronald A on Feb 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have a 2016. LOVE THE SKID PLATE. I can say that it is so simple to remove and replace. So I remove the plate, Wipe down the frame and the skid plate. Re-Install
    Is this plastic as strong and thick as the OEM Kim/husky skid plates?
    Jamie W on May 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it is, with the acerbis mc skid plate I was able to get strength and a nice looks all in one. It has taken several good size rocks and used to help hop logs and never had a problem or any cracks. I have had it for about 8 months and it has held up very good. I'm not sure what type of coating is on the skid plate, but I have the white and blue it is has not stained or got grody looking. Of course that come with just bike maintenance and cleaning. But 2 thumbs up for this plate.
    I have a 2018 KTM 350 SX. I think the frame is the same as the 450 SX but not sure. Will the skid plate fit a 350 SX?
    Gustavo A on Jul 26, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Two different frames, just plug in your make, model and year and there is a skid plate for your bike. Same as a 250sxf.
