Skid or Glide~Aluminum or Carbon ~which is better
Posted May 05, 2003 - 05:04 PM
I've read all the post I could find on this subject and I am not sure if there's a clear choice of which may be better and why. Everyone has different riding areas and types of terrian (mud, sand, etc..) so I am sure that figures into each decision.
Would someone be better off purchasing the carbon fiber glide plate and then possibly add the ignition and clutch covers which may fit closer or get the aluminum skid plate which covers all but possibly collects mud and other debris.
Apparently carbon fiber doesn't keep it's good looks after some minor use and aluminum can at least be polished to improve appearance after minor use.
I'm guessing weight comparison is not a factor since protection is the important thing here...

Get the protectors for the water pump/clutch and ignition as well. Beats walking back to the truck.
