I have been looking at skid plates and kind of like the WER design. Does anybody have any experience with them on WR's (I have a 99 wr400)?

The popular choice around this forum seems to be the Utah Cycle plate...www.utahsportcycle.com my '98 came with one and it's taken some serious abuse from me in the short time I've been riding.

Utah Cycle is the favorite amongst folks that like the pick through the boulders and need heavy armor. There's only been two complaints about it. 1) It's inconvenient to take off for oil changes for folks that remove the smaller, lower drain plug. 2) It looks like a shovel strapped to the bottom of the bike. That said, I've got one on my bike and wouldn't buy anything else.

p.s. If you find a Moose skid plate for cheaper, buy it. They just put their name on the packaging. Mine even said Utah Cycles on the mounting instructions.
