This Richochet Skid Plate is perfectly shaped and manufactured specifically for this model bike and does not match the sample picture shown. Ricochet skid plates are built with an "ears" design to protect vulnerable engine components and mounted with super tough chrome-moly steel clamps and locking nuts. Every Ricochet Skid Plate is made from 5/32" or 3/16" aircraft aluminum, incorporates cutouts for easy maintenance, and has a clear non-corosive anodized finish. You'll recognize the value of Ricochet's time-tested design, with hundreds of thousands of skid plates sold since 1972.
Please remember that the skid plate you're ordering here will not look exactly like this picture. It will be molded with the proper shape and mounts to fit the specific year, make and model that you buy.
note: Ca customers may need to trim the skid plate or relocate the charlcoal canister
Skid Plate of My Dreams!

This is really only a partially informed review, since I have only had this skid plate for 2 days, but thus far it's been great. The installation was incredibly easy, it doesn't add too much noise, and so far it seems to be doing it's job very well!
solid plate but horrible bolts

I have the ricochet for my GS650 twin and it's great so thought I would get another one for my XT250. The plate isn't extremely heavy duty but will offer modest protection unless you get into the really gnarly rocks. Fits on the bike extremely well and is super easy to install. My only complaint is that all of the bolts had sloppy machine work and seems to be in between tool sizes. We will need to replace these with quality bolts in the very near future. For the price we paid, it's a fair product.

Nice, tough plate. Mounting was perfect. I switched out the Torx bolts for regular hex-head bolts (M6x1.0, 30mm). That way I don't need to carry yet another tool. The plate does reflect the engine noise up to the rider; you get a little more throaty sound, but that's to be expected.

Solid product with nice looking welds, fits perfectly, mounts in 5 minutes. It uses the mounting brackets on the bike and is not mounted with clamps, as other products. Would definitely recommend.

The hardest part of installing this skid plate, was taking the cap off the lok-tite. Was very impressed with the quality, and the price was very doable. All in all a great product at a great price. I would highly recommend this item.
