I got the Pro-Armour Swing arm one because its got a built in tow hook thats has come in handy a few times. :thumbsup:

Went with GYTR on A-arms for the 700r cut out and got the pro-armour chassis for no particular reason lol

I have Pro Armor all around and I am very happy. Great fit, very strong, and the Oil drain hole is in the right place. Check but GYTR have not had both oil holes placed in the right space.

I am happy with my GYTR skids. Had to fix the hole for the oil tank. It is pretty retarded they did not get that right, but it only took 15min to fix. Especially considering the fit and finish was perfect, with that one exception.

I have never used the Pro Armor, so I can't comment on them.

I have the GYTR skids. I like to kinda use one theme and i liked the cut out on the a arms so i went with the rest GyTR to match. You wont be dissappointed either way though. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I have full pro armor skids and i love them. Both oil holes line up and the swingarm skid is 1/4' thick so it wont bend when you hit a rock like the gyt-r one did on my 660.

Here is a pic of tow hook :thumbsup:

Can you tell me how much clearence there is between the skid and the rotor/sproket??

I have a prm that is holding up pretty well, except that it didnt have a lot of clearence to begin with, so only a little bending on the sides has resulted in draggin rotor/sproket.

After a year of abuse at an extremely rocky place to ride. It has bent up some but I still have over 1/4 inch clearance for the brake rotor. :thumbsup:

Show how bad it is my buddy busted his PRM skid after 2 rides on his 450 lol

GYTR has a ton of room in this respect. On the bad side, it hangs REALLY low because of this. On pavement I can barely get my fist under the skid with the stock tires.

I bought GYTR skids about a year ago and I had to drill the oil drain hole in the right place. My friend just bought a set of GYTR's and now the hole is right where it should be.

Using DG Laser Cut Stainless Steel ones, still look good after many trips over the rocks, though some deep gouges. I ride in the cinders alot and they eat away at my aluminum nerf bars.

A friend of mine with a 400ex has the laser cut SS DG. He hit one rock on the first ride with it and bent it into the rotor. Its too thin in my opinion. Nice looking though. Still think the thicker Aluminum especially for the swinger is better.
