I have an '06 WR450 and bought the TT one from their store, I like it.
Price was fair, and as a newb they take a percent off your first order.

I went with the BRP plate, but the Works Connection plates are very nice. Just a little spendy though.

I have a hyde racing teflon composite skid plate. In my opinion the composite material is better than aluminum and carbon fiber.

I used the TT on my DRZ and it was great. I have WR450 now, and did the GYTR and it rocks. You have good choices!:crazy:

I got Flatland Racing plate. I really like it because the bottom mounting holes are recessed for protection from sheering on rocks. They also look trick and light, unlike Utah (which is an excellent bash plate but it looks like tank armor). See "MY GARAGE"

Props to XRMarty. Best one around.

I have put the Flatland Racing one on my 07 WR450. With the stegically placed holes, I think it loks like the best on the market. IMHO.

I have a GYTR skid plate and it is good. Thinking about getting those carbon ones.

I have the one from the tt store and it is great. Same as the one that is shown on bleeds blue too. Love it and it is tough! Jason

The Flatland Racing one is super beefy and as already stated, the bolts are recessed. This is the best one that i have seen so far.
