Acerbis Plastic Offroad Skid Plate with Linkage Guard
I got this for my new KTM 350 SXF but didn't really pay much attention to how well it covered the water pump, ignition and linkage and it is thick. Since I only do moto with this bike I ended up trimming off the side coverage and about half of the linkage guard to make it more like a glide plate. Looks good, functions well and best of all it is the easiest skid plate to put on and take off than any other I have owned over the last 50+ years of dirt biking.

Good coverage/protection but suspect mounting
I put this skid plate on my new 2019 KTM XC. Install was very straightforward, easy enough but the mounting plate is only secured by two zip ties. Despite snugging the zip ties as much as possible, the mount & plate still shifts around. I have no concerns about the protection and like they way it fits otherwise. The front edge does make contact with the pipe on my bike though and wish it had a bit more clearance to avoid vibrating. I may trim that area back.

Damage Linkage - Poor Fitment
Caution, poor fitment on new KTM’s and can cause damage to linkage. The extended linkage guard rubs heavily and damaged the linkage on my new 250 SX. There is almost a 1mm deep wear groove in the linkage after 3 hours of riding with this skidplate. If you have a newer KTM, double and triple check that the linkage guard is not rubbing, it can damage the linkage knuckle. I reached out to Acerbis and they were unwilling to help or investigate the issue.

Beware 2020 KTM Models
Does not fit 2020 model KTM. Rocky Mountain is aware of the issue, and is letting me return the item. Not sure if Acerbis is aware or not, but I would assume after talking with Rocky Mountain return specialist.

Great Plastic Skid Plate
2019 KTM 350XC-F - excellent coverage of frame and linkage. Needed to grind a bit off the rear to account for the kickstand (like others have mentioned). Fitment was spot on after accounting for the kickstand and the plate has held up to a fair amount of abuse without any issue. I would not hesitate to buy again.

Improper fitting for bike.
So I purchased the Acerbis Off-road Skid Plate for my 2019 KTM 350 XC-F. A little disappointed. When mounting the screws on frame the Holes on the skid plate do not line up with holes on bike. Also, I hade to cut the back left side of skid plate that goes under the door peg in order for it to fit with kick stand that comes with the KTM.

Cheap skidplate
The skid plate part is a nice durable plastic, and when it's all mounted up looks rather nice. On my 2019kx450 I could not use the linkage cover because the angle from where it mounted on the frame was not even close!! Youd have to bend the ever living shit out of it to get to mount flush. AND the oil drain is in the wrong spot!! So I had to drill mine out.

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.
Will this fit a 2020 Husky 501 and does it cover the linkage?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: According to the online selection chart, it is not specified for the 2020 501. That does not mean you can't make it fit, but that'd be on you to solve. Most likely that it will fit the frame is the 501 frame is like the 450 frames. FOr example, I put a 450 skid plate onto a 350 which has a 250 frame. It took a little modification to the mounting brackets but it worked well for two years. The rear flipper fin aft or the hook arm to hold the skid plate to the lower frame rail is extended to protect the rocker linkage, and it does a pretty good job at it.

Can you add an additional linkage guard? Obie makes a linkage guard that fits with the Acerbis plastic mx skid plate, but will it work the mc version? If not is their another option?
Andrew W M on Mar 13, 2019

Ryan P on Jan 14, 2019

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?
