This Obie Link Guard is XTREME – Linkage Protection for KTM and Husqvarna 2-stroke and 4-stroke which are fitted with a specific skid plate. The XTREME – Linkage Protection link guard is made of a thick (20% thicker than Obie regular guards) durable plastic, is lightweight, and is contoured to fit snug against the linkage and skid plate.
Designed to work with T.M. Designworks Plastic skid plates only.
Always install the Obie Link Guard with the engraved "OBIE" facing up on the right (kick starter) side.
The linkage guard does what its designed to but at a hefty cost. The kit for my 300xc came with the guard, hardware and an aluminum plate retainer. Ill be honest. I feel for what they cost, is pretty steep for what you get. No complaints about the quality. If i had known it was gonna be this expensive for just the guard then I would have gone with the SXS plate instead.
I have one on my 300 and one on my 350 now. I have 200+ hours on the one on the 300. for the FX350 I was hesitant to pay the additional fee for the upgraded frame clamp but after I got it I don't have any issue with the increased price. The increase in durability is worth it IMO
