I thought this would be a nice piece to have to protect my linkage just because I ride in areas with a lot of rocks and roots and logs. I was wrong. Did not come with instructions however did have you go to their website BUT THEIR website was not helpful at all and on top of it all they said they would need a longer bolts but did not supply the longer bolts. Overall the intentions of this product are good but the fitment absolutely sucked I had to tap my own holes into it because this predrilled holes we’re not big enough. I would not reccomend it.
I've only got a few hours with it so far. Had one hard impact that I know of and it did it's job. Installed with an aluminum Enduro Engineering skid plate. The online instructions weren't much help. had to widen the mounting holes with a drill and the guard holds the skid plate to far from the frame to get the mounting bolts in. I used three C clamps to pull it close enough to get the job done.
Well worth the price and very easy to install. The big bulky and over priced linkage protection in the past is now outsided, this skidplate does the job and also keeps flying debris and water off your linkage, thus increasing the lifetime of your linkage and reducing maintenance cycles.
