The oil lines on the right side of the engine are exposed without any protection. The Utah skid plate will protect that area and more.

That is what you're missing... :D


Thanks. Does that large wrap-around skid cause heating or noise issues? Maybe its because it's for a 4-stroke, but it's much larger than the Enduro Engineering skids on my KTM 2-stroke.

That's a good looking skid. Do they make one for the wr? And yes, it does make a noise issue. The first time I rode after I installed it, I thought my bike was coming apart ( not knowing at first what it was ). But it didn't take but a few minutes to figure it out. It kind of sounds like a table saw running. All of the sound of the bottom end reverberates up...
No heating or any other issues. It's a great piece.
