Great product, needs modification for KTM XC-F
Love this product, but when it arrived for my 2019 KTM 350 XC-F the mounting tabs didn't line up with the holes.. I really wanted to like it so instead of sending it back I decided to modify it. The problem is the kickstand, I had to notch the plastic so the kick stand would go down. a quick trip to the bench grinder to remove about 1.5" from the left side under the foot peg and perfect fit now.

-m-2019 KTM 350 XC-F--
Now it will line up with the mounting tabs

Great skid plate
Installed on a 19 KX450. Just make sure you follow the directions because you have to hold the backing plate/bar right where it says to by the water pump in order to get the bolt threaded. Also what I am assuming is the hole to drain oil through doesn't line up with the oil drain bolt, but not to big of a deal as I always remove the skid for oil changes as oil will always end up on the skid plate if not.

I wish RMATV had the option of the green linkage guard that is shown on the Acerbis website!!!

Great skid plate.
I put this on a 2018 TX300. A little bit of modifications and used different mounting than provided. If it would've gone on a 4stroke it would be perfect.

Great skid plate. Creative installation.
Thick, sturdy, good looking skid plate for the price. I've used acerbis stuff for a long time and am usually very pleased. Plate has great coverage for the frame and motor. It by no means has a linkage guard as advertised, but it could deflect some loose rock or something I guess. Had to get creative to install it (see picture) which may be for the best so I don't lose anything as easily. Would buy again!

-m-2017 KTM 450 SX-F--
Good coverage
This made installation way easier and may prevent losing a piece, who knows.

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...

Great Value
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.

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
BEST ANSWER: It depend on which bike you have, some of our skid plates have linkage guards already.
I looked up to see what it would fit. It is listed as fitting a 2017 450sx, but will it fit 17 350sxf as well?
Ryan P on Jan 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The 350SXF is a completely different skid plate listing.
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.
