What's wrong with the stock skid plate? why do people change them?


It does not inspire alot of confidence when crossing huge tree trunks.

Rode it in my local forest on fire roads and gnarly single track. Brought her home, washed and degreased.

Changed oil and filter (new stainless steel), new air filter.

Cleaned and degreased again while I had all the plates off.

Riding this weekend!!!

I spent yesterday wrenchin' on the wifey's Raptor. New twist throttle, large capacity oil tank, oil and filter change, new tires.

Thanks for the info on the skid plates!, I did not realize that they were plastic. What would be a good one to buy? (I ride over stumps and sharp rocks on the TT-R 230 with no skid plate now just a 'skid frame')

Flatland Racing in Kansas makes a very good one. You also can buy in combination with radiator guards (trust me here), which you should. Have already poked a hole in one. $300 to replace.

Put on a new GPR stabilizer and greased the headset bearings. Never ridden with one before so I guess I'll find out what all the hype is about tomorrow.:thumbsup:

Dude... where is your gear to protect you from injuries like that?

Or... are you the young, invincible type?

I washed mine while my daughter washed my old/her new 250 right next to me. Shout works great. Then we lubed the chains. Can't wait for our next trip in a week or so.

I figured out how to kick-start my new-to-me '99 400 then I tore around the woods with it for about 4 hours. Man, I should have bought one of these a long time ago!

Work done to '02 426:
-Degreased all the bad spots
-Turned Rear tire, lubed axle and bearings while in there
-Devol Skid plate and frame guards installed
-Installed Trail Tech Vapor computer
-Lubed chain

Interestingly enough, after I installed the computer, I pinched the wires from the computer that I'd sliced into the CDI loom with the tank bolt. This caused a frame ground, and no ignition. 45 minutes of kicking later, I back-tracked all I'd done and found this. Seems as though this could be one of those mystery reasons some bikes may stop starting suddenly, as this is a signficant pinch point for wires.

Future planned items:
-Make a mount for the Trailtech with aluminum to fit between bar pinch bolts.
-Order clear IMS tank from eBay
-Powerbomb header
-disc guards
-Plastics
-Valve adjustment and auto decomp HotCam (Winter)
