Clark, Months ago you recommended the e-line carbon fiber skid plate. I am considering purchasing one. I have a few questions. A photo would probably cover 1 and 2: 1) How well is the water pump protected? Does it protect the metal tube to the water pump? 2) How high up does it extend in the front? (lots of mud riding) 3) How durable is it to hitting rocks? (lots of rocks where I ride) I currently have the aftermarket full Aluminum skidplate from Yamaha.
