Excellent fit and appearence. Now for the endurance testing!
This is an out of the box and install review. Long term review to come.
Honestly the cost of maintaining this bike is more than I thought it was going to be when I began to realize how hard it was to get parts and how much they cost protecting what was there and working well was really important to me. I researched for hours. Days. I ended up here. And am so happy I did. Absolute perfect fit! Exceptional craft. and as small as or might seem I'm so glad the stickers included were black and didn't clash with the colors of the bike.
Good design, enveloping, easy to install. Very good if durability ok.
Quality product easy to fit.
A $200 piece of plastic seems at first glance like a foolish idea, and the idea that said plastic can protect the engine of your $10k+ motorcycle seems even more so. Looks can be deceiving. Is that plastic worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!! This skid plate is 3x as thick as the stock plate on the Husky 701 Enduro, plus it has an extra piece on the bottom that even doubles that. It also protects your rear suspension - something that the stock plate should, but doesn't. It thereby allows the bike to more easily slide over protruding rocks or downed trees. Mounting is a snap with the provided hardware. Literally 25 minutes: 5 minutes to prep the new plate and 20 minutes to remove old and install new. Great fit - they even thought of the notch to allow the rachet extension to access the mounting bolt. Ultimate? For sure!
