    Details

      Spending most of your time on the track doesn’t mean you can leave your bike’s belly unprotected. Mis-timing a jump, crashing, or rocky dirt can all damage your bike, but you don’t want to get slowed down by a skid plate’s added weight. Not a problem. With the Works Connection MX Skid Plate you get protection for vital components and still stay at trim fighting weight.

      Works Connection makes the MX Skid Plate from .125 inch thick 6061 aluminum alloy for rigid protection, and goes the extra mile creating plates fitted to your machine’s specific make and model. The MX Skid Plate also features pre-drilled mounting holes along with an oil drain for easy mounting and maintenance. Works Connection even tosses in some factory foam to deaden any extra noise.

      Specs:
    • Provides excellent protection without adding unnecessary weight
    • Made from .125 inch thick 6061 T6 aluminum alloy for outstanding strength
    • Features pre-drilled mounting holes, oil drain access hole, and anti-vibration foam

    Overall great product
    The skid plate fits perfect, looks awesome and provides excellent protection.

    Tips for installation - Must be done on the left side of the bike. Because of the floating bracket for the front to bolts it is a little tricky to get them lined up on the right because of the water pump. The bike has to be on the triangle, which is leaning towards you, which makes it a little cramped. Or leaning on a stand on the throttle side. Then you can line the bracket up with your free hand. The opening for the drain bolt is adequate and won't catch and oil.

    Overall satisfied with my purchase.

    I've been using Works Connection since the first started up in the early 90's. Remember driving to his house in NorCal to pick up my first plate. All my bikes since them have had Works Connection protection. Never had one fail to deliver.

    Product fit perfectly, super easy to install, and far superior interior mounting brace than other skid plates like Acerbis. Quality part from Works Connection.

    good but could be much better
    when I got the plate it looked awesome, and super durable. it came with packing to prevent dirt from building up in between the plate and the bike. I could not find bolts in the box though that is when I figured out it does not come with them it says in the instructions to just use the OEM ones. though I wasn't super thrilled I did not have time to buy others so I used them for the time being. I cut the foam pad to fit, took off the OEM plate, and put the new plate up to the bike I started with the front bolt and put it in most of the way. then tried to get the back ones to thread in they would not line up. me and my brother tried pushing on the plate horizontally to line it up and then tried back bolts in and doing the same to line up the front and pushing to get it to line up. it would not until we only put the short OEM bolts barely in and then stretched it into place and got the front bolt started, we could then tighten all the bolts down. it is tight but I think it should come with nice longer bolts like most plates do. also the fit is tight which is hard to install esp with the OEM bolts but is probably a good thing as it will stay on better.

    Great purchase
    Good protection for lower case.. bolted right up to the frame with no complications. Plate will bend with the bike when tightening bolts but secured it tight enough that it doesn’t rattle whenbike is running. All in all, great purchase.

    Does this cover the frame underneath?
    Adam G on Mar 21, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, it covers the frame just to the outer edges of the frame. Full frame coverage!

    Also, as a tip, save your toilet paper rolls! You can stick them through the oil change hole and push the paper tube right up against the engine... Clean drain and less mess!
    Does it come with the bolts to mount it?
    A shopper on Feb 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes this kit came with everything needed to mount it up. The skid plate is awesome I have had zero issues.
    Do you have to remove the skid plate bolt to change the oil?
    Matt L on Aug 4, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: To get a clean drain you have to remove the bolts but personally I leave then in and wash the bike after the oil change. It’s a great skid plat for the money Looks good too.
    Does this protect the linkage as well as the engine/frame?
    Paresh G on Aug 31, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Just from objects hitting the crankcase. No linkage protection. Sits flush with the frame below crankcase.
