I was wondering if anyone had any bottom pics of the chassis/frame and swingarm skids installed on their bikes. Thanks.

I was wanting to see some pics also.... i just got done reading about wdy69 and his fuck up on his bike.... i have a-arm skids and engine skid... but i would like to get a swingarm skid.... which one do you all suggest? I heard some ppl say that for the swingarm skid, that the plastic one is the best bcs, when you hit something it will just bend back, where as the metal/aluminum ones will stay bent (maybe into your chain or something) and you have to keep bending them back.... what do you all think? ? ?

Very good thoughts 8)
I may stay with the stock skid on the swingarm.

I ran with the plastic skid on my swingarm for a few rides and managed to ruin my rear brake rotor, rear sprocket and my rear sprocket hub. More then $100's later in repairs (that was used parts too) I got me a swingarm skid and will never look back. AZ is very rocky though but to me its the most important piece on my bike.

Yes. I do somewhere on here. Pro Armor like my sig says.

Here it is:


If you use search and type in "well this sucks" you'll see a pic of where I had to notch the sides for my nerfs to clear.

I had to do the same thing on my 660. The skid's are really high quality but are setup for non-nerf bikes, still its an easy easy fix!

I have a PRM 1/4 thick rear swing arm plate. works excellent, I have bashed it a few time and it has not moved.

i put on the GYTR swingarm skid and after 1 day of riding, both sides were jammed up and one was pressed up against my chain/sprocket, and cracked both welds on the braces. i put the stock plastic one back on and haven't had a problem since, plastic bounces back, and if it doesn't it wont ruin anything.

I got the full Pro Armor skids and the swingarm skid is 1/4 inch thick and i dont think i will be bending that any time soon. As far as the plastic one throw that away ASAP. Here is a shitty camera phone pic ;)

Hey another guy had proarmor and he had to cut or something to get the nerf bars on it. Do you know if you would have to cut if you actually buy the Proarmor nerfs.
