    Well made quality skidplate
    Solid slid plate. Fits well. Cutouts provide enough room for drain plug access. So far survived a year of trail abuse.

    So far not so great on the installation. Might have stripped all the torque screws.... should have read the introduction about adding oil to them.

    Solid construction, much better than stock plate for klr650

    Not disappointed with this bash plate at all. Install was easy enough. Fitment was excellent with no modifications needed. I was stunned by the quality of workmanship, appearance of this skid plate. I liked that it fit beneath the motor mount since my Dirtracks brand crash guards were already attached to the motor mount location. The coverage of the skid plate reassuring and will provide the needed protection I wanted. Looks great on my KLR!

    I'm wanting to install this on a 2008 KLR 650 with the Tusk Crash bars installed. Will this fit my ride without having to take the crash bars off to install? Thanks for the help!

    What's the difference between the aluminum skit plate and the anodized black skid plate??? Also I have a 2013 Kawasaki klr 650 and I installed the tusk crash bars.. Is there any other skid plate that will fit with the tusk crash bars??
    Thank you
    Michael F on Nov 29, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Anodizing is a simple electrochemical process developed more than 75 years ago that forms a protective coating of aluminum oxide on the surface of the aluminum. The lifetime of the finish is proportional to the thickness of the anodic coating applied.

    BARRY K on Mar 20, 2017

    I searched all feedback but couldn’t find anything specific to my bike.

    JEREMY M on Jan 30, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I don’t know, but it works great! I ride enduro events and a lot of technical riding in rocks, logs, and roots. It has taken a beating and still holds it shape.
    Does the skid plat come with the bolts or no?
    A shopper on Nov 9, 2018

    How does this skid plate work on a Yamaha super tenere?
    A shopper on Jun 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I don't know about a Super Tenere but, on tight twisty stuff with roots and rocks, it worked so well on my KDX200, I got another for my CRF230F. It's way cheaper than a busted crank case!
    Does installation on KLR 650 require any modifications to the plate or fasteners?
    Eldon H on Mar 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: My KLR 605 is a 2016, I did not have to do any modifications and I used provided hardware. It took a bit of time and patience, just take it slow, Just like most anything that a person has not installed before. More: the stock oil drain plug does protrude slightly past the new guard. You will want to buy the low head drain plug.
    Does this work with Tusk crash bars on a 2012 klr 650?
    Nate on Aug 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It works on my 2008 KLR650, which is also a Gen 2 KLR
    Can you get replacement mounts for this skid plate?
    A shopper on Jul 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I haven't needed replacement mounts since I've initially put it on. It's been very secure and I've been grateful it's been there on many occasions. So far I've only had to tighten them once and I used a thread locker to help.
    installation - do i need to remove the small front bar on the xr650l before installing this skid plate? i cannot see where the screws underneath connect to? is this a requirement for the xr650l install? Anyone have pics on where they put the clamps they can show me?

    thanks

    tj
    Terry J on May 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It has been a while sense I installed the plate. I remember it lining up with no issue what so ever. I would remove any factory skid plates or protection this plate should bolt directly to the frame. If it does not send it back you might have been sent the wrong one. Good luck mate!
    I am seeing a few users applying carpet to their skid plate...why?
    A shopper on Apr 11, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I did it to keep it from vibrating and making a lot of rattling noises. I love the protection it gives!
    it is perfect when you jump over logs & large rocks.
    Have a 2000 KLR650 with Motech Bars will this fit?
    Nikolaus H on Mar 12, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Nikolaus H,

    The Ricochet Offroad skid plate should fit even with Motech Bars. I installed one on my KLR and I had crash bars as well.
    I just had this delivered for my 2012 we. What are the brackets for? Does this not just bolt into the original threaded holes where the plastic one was?
    Sam S on Apr 11, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: On my bike the holes do not line up. The brackets wrap over the top of the frame rails and the bolt runs up through the skid plate into the bracket. I actually wound up mounting mine in place with the engine removed because I had hard time getting things lined up around the engine case.
    If the original holes line up, definitely use those.
    Other than that, it really is a really good quality unit.
    I have an ‘08 KLX 450R. The sub frame is square. I noticed in the pictures that the brackets are rounded. Do they come squared to fit the subframe on the KLX?
    Grady H on Nov 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: For the one I bought they were round and no square brackets were included. But why use the brackets if you can locat and drill hole in the plate to match the frame you should be able to go without the brackets. I only used a couple of the brackets

    Alternatively you could shape the brackets with a vise and hammer

    Good luck
    I have a 2008 KLX 450R with a boyesen waterpump installed. Will this fit?
    Grady H on Oct 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I’m sorry, I’m not able to answer, meaning I used the skid plate on a KLR 650 2008. However, I would think it would the Boyesen pump is very similar to a stock pump in the over all width.
    Will this fit a 2004 crf230f with out cutting or drilling?
    A shopper on Jul 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: when ever you purchase this Item for your bike it will fit I purchased one for my KTM. Perfect fit no drilling required it has clamps that hold it onto the frame from my experience racing cross country it is advised to use some lock tight at least blue lock tight
    okay , has anyone used this skidlplate on a RM250 ,if so what kind of clamps ?
    BARRY K on Mar 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I installed one on a 06rm. The clamps are like conduit clamps. A circle cut in half that wraps around the frame and a tapped flange that screws into the plate itself. Real simple to install just a pain to hold it in position and start the bolts.

    GREG F on Oct 31, 2018

    I have 2005 kdx200 and it says it will fit but I'm wondering if it'll wrap around the engine like other bikes. Will it?
    Ghent T on Jul 21, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it has some small wings that deflect debris pretty good
    I have a 2016 Yamaha XT 250 (Duel Sport) and I just ordered and received a Ricochet skid plate on line though you guys. However it doesn't fit. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I bought the bike new from a dealer here in California.
    There is a funny looking part that is welded to frame right where the upper left hand corner of the plate wants to go. It looks like a filter of some kind about 8 inches in circumference and about 5 inches tall with a couple of small rubber hoses going into it. One of the hoses comes from the gas tank near the top of the tank.

    Could this be something required on California bikes only? They have a few rules and regulations that most other states do not require. 'The plate looks great but it wont fit with that filter-type part there. I am wondering if someone makes a skidplate that will accommodate this or is the filter something that can be removed?
    Steve J on Jul 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: From what I have found, California does have different emissions regulations so they add parts to the bike to keep the emissions down. This would need to be removed in order for the skid plate to work but that might cause issues if you are continuing to run the bike in California. Unfortunately I dont show that we carry anything else that would fit with the extra parts for the California models.
