07 flatland skid plate

17 posts in this topic

Got the new skid plate from flatland racing for my 07 wr 450 and talk about awesome! It looks amazing and fits perfect. By far the best fitting aftermarket part ever installed, fits better then the factory one. I wish I had pics. to send. And the way it is mounted is awesome. It also fills the gap in the frame where the stock one did not. Great job to Flatland racing!

I can tell you by looking at the Utah skid plate that there is no comparison, not to bash anybody but the Flatland skid plate looks awesome and is really solid. Still at work today, will try and get some pics. on Monday.

No bashing is needed, the whole point to this forum isn't to see who's bike/product is better than the next but to keep the dirtbike community updated as to what's out there. If everyone can see all the different configurations we all have then the products for our bikes will continue to get better. Flatland doesn't have the site updated yet, so I will be waiting to see the pics of your skid plate. Thanks--WR Dave:prof:

Exactly. And, if the Flatland plate provides coverage for the bottom frame spars towards the back of the plate, I would definitely consider dumping the Utah plate I have now, and buying a Flatland. So.......hurry up with the pics, please! Take lots, especially of the underside. Thanks.

I do not see a listing for an 07 WR450F...only a listing for the 07 WR250F.

Here is the pic from the Flatland racing web site.

Is there another one for the 450...or does the 250 Skid Plate fit the 450?

Thanks.

There is another one for the 450, they have them in stock now just not on there site yet. They look a lot like that for the 250 but the plate goes all the way up into the "V" of the frame and uses a "T" bolt to hold the upper portion of the plate in place. I spoke with Mike at Flatland Racing and he sent me the first one he had finished. I'm working on the pic's and will try my best to have them this evening.

I have to agree! I put the Flatland on my 07 WR450 last week and it is very nice! It looks much better than the one for the 07 WR250. There are no hooks for the bottom frame rails to fight with like the 250. It amplifies the motor noise a little but not nearly as bad as I figured it would.

anyone out there with similar style of skid plate but in carbone fiber? i have a Eline on my yz 250 and is tuff enough. i have always had aluminum skidplates for heavy rock hits, but now i am into these carbon fiber plates. super light and no rattling or humming.

ah, maybe i'll just go buy some foam and cut to fit the stocker to hold out the mud.

I've got the flatland on my 07 WR450. The only thing I don't like is the noise it deflects from the motor. It also sounds like it's vibrating on the bottom side of the frame. Think I'm going to try and put some thin weatherstriping on the frame where the plate touches and see if that helps with the vibrating. Anybody else try something to that effect? I can say that it does provide awesome protection, and I like the fact that it has the holes in it to allow some cooling on the bottom side of the motor. I'd highly recommend it!!

I used weatherstripping between the frame and the skid plate , it dulled the noise but didn't stop it. These engines are noisy. As far as cooling goes, the radiators do 99 % of the cooling not the bottom of the engine, so I wouldn't worry about that aspect of the skid plate. Just think how cool your crankshaft will be after a rock opens up the bottom of the cases. It's your money! :) WR Dave

I usually put a bead of silicone on the skid plate where it contacts the frame. Let it cure before you put the plate back on the bike and it will give it a good cushion and quiet it down.
