Utah, flat land racing and devol all make nice sturdy plates. I have a flat land and have been happy with the fit and strength. For the last year, I have been using a carbon fiber plate - its smacked rocks hard and still is fine. (Ty Davis uses carbon when he needs a plate) Carbon is pretty strong, light and makes less noise from the engine. But if want bullet proof go with the Utah, Flat land, Devol option.

I went with the Flatland Racing unit and am very pleased with the fit and look. Bolts right up to the stock locations with no hangers. I only have one problem, two of the cap screws are about 1/4 inch too short to reach the mounting brackets on the frame. I am not able to send e-mail from home at the moment due to PC difficulties so I will be calling them tomarrow to see about getting longer bolts. Just wanted to let everyone know what I ended up with. Thanks for all of the suggestions and help.

I am running the Yamaha GYTR skid plate on mine, it is a direct bolt-on with no hangers or loops to mess with.


Running the GYTR on mine and love it. :applause:

I have a MSR skid plate on my TT-R250. Know what you mean...the hangers suck. :D

Moose...awesome! It has clamps but still faster to remove and put on than the devol that bolts directly to the frame. Thicker too. The devol dissintigrated on a little rock taking out the mounting point.

IIRC moose plates are made by Utah sport cycle.

How about the only vote for B&B Bash Plates.
Made in AUS by B&B Aluminium.
It cost me around 90US shipped....
Beats the CR#P out of Utah for finish..but does require an internal hanger (just behind gear lever in pic.) . All Allen bolts are are SSteal, recessed and plugged except for one at the top front.
PIC here (when new)
