my skidplate is nut and bolt magnet

8 posts in this topic

it seems like everytime i drop nut or bolt when im working on my wr it just happens to fall between skidplate and engine.it doesnt what part of bike im working on or where im standing.a couple weeks ago i was working on my kx250 and drop a bolt. i searched for hours and couldnt find it a couple days later took skid plate of my wr and there it was.i was at least 4 feet from wr when i had drop it.the thing that pisses me off the most is it is absolutely impossible to fish the nut or bolt out without taking skidplate off.does anybody else have this problem?

There is the foam you place between the engine and skid plate. The idea is to prevent mud from packing in there. In your case(s), it will prevent WR parts from packing in there. :)

hope this makes you feel better... my buddie was putting on a YZ tank, with works conn. rad. guards, and he dropped the spacer and gas tank bolt into the magnetic hole twice!! Both times he had to take the E-line carbon plate off (instead of leaving it off until finished) It was really cool to actually see smoke pouring out his ears :D i just laughed (because it has also happened to me) and then I gave him a extra piece of foam like i put in my skid plate. now the parts can bounce onto the floor. ( or if your like my friend, into the tall grass.... ha ha ha, I was rolling :)

have fun!!!

Thats a good Idea, Skid plates aren't hard to find when the wing nuts vibrate loose...But those wings are going to be a (*&% to find.

Bonzai.... :)
