    Solid investment
    A necessary addition on the Husqvarna without braking the back. It has held up good so far taking some solid hits. Fairly easy install

    Easy install and good protection for minor scrapes and impacts
    Meh... it covers the lower linkage and most likely protects from minor scrapes and bumps. I’m afraid that In a real hard impact situation. This wouldn’t do a lot to protect. I have yet to find out yet.

    Well worth it!
    Bought my first Obie link guard when I purchased my ‘14 250XC off the showroom floor. Just now replaced it 4yrs later after Enduro Racing, Riding in the Rocky Mountains and all the other adventure beatings it has received. I ride atleast once a week and go over logs all the time. Never hangs up, falls off or fails. Fits as advertised and is extremely easy to install.

    So far great product love it
    I would consider this item to protect the linkage it's cheap insurance if you have a hard time installing this item lay on your back underneath the bike and push upwards it works well if you have the stock plastic skid plate

    Nice but
    should cost less. It's a good enough piece of protection, but way overpriced for what it is. Just installed it so can't comment on effectiveness or longevity.

    4 stars but worth still worth it
    Works as designed! Glides right over rocks and logs without damage to the linkage and does't get hung up while doing it!
    My only complaint is with the link guard installed to the skid plate, it is very difficult to get the skid plate back on the bike. The factory skid plate has a plastic loop at the back that hooks around the rear of the frame. To install the skid plate u have to hold it at a 90 degree angle to the bottom of the bike and put the loop over the frame, which as stated above is very difficult with the link guard installed. It takes a lot of force and about a 60 degree angle to get the loop over the frame now. luckily i don't have to take off the skid plate very often. Usually just for oil changes. So the benefits of the link guard out way the difficulties of installing the skid plate.

    Drilling the stock skid plate was the only hard part
    I measured 8 times and drilled twice. The angle you are suppose to drill it is not exactly strait into the plastic. It was easy to install back onto the bike once it was mounted.

    Will this fit an Enduro Engineering skid plate (for a 2018 Husky FE 350)?
    WILLIAM S on Aug 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No, that Obie Link Guard will not fit for the 2018 Husky FE350 with EEA skid plate. You will want to order part #OLG-KTM125450-16-P3E for that bike year and skid plate.

    Thank you for choosing Obie Link Guard!
    Is this for the TM designs skid plate?
    A shopper on Apr 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: This particular Obie Link Guard is for use with the stock skid plate. We do make an Obie Link Guard to fit the TM Design skid plate for both the old chassis and new chassis bikes.
