Has yardsale came out with these yet or Tag put there's out. I really don't want to go with an aluminum rear skid for clearance reasons racing harescrambles. I'd like to find a someone that makes a good poly or hardened plastic. I love carbon fiber but it is too damned expensive. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Do you race XC by chance? Here in Iowa we get rutted out real bad half way through a race and start getting hung up. I'd actually like to lower the rear end a bit for a better ride but can't do it because of clearance.

I ride in ohio, and all the places I ride are real rocky, or rutted up. Thats why the skid plates are the first thing I bought. Th skid tucks up nice, doesnt hang any lower then stock, getting high centered is just gonna happen sometimes.

We only have a couple of tracks here that you have to worry about rocks. I have to have a skid plate when I race in Missouri though, they have got alot of gnarly rocks. Usually I run no skid with a sprocket guard but need a good skid for the rock tracks. I haven't raced my 450R on any rock tracks yet, just my kfx440. I also race in the afternoon class so the track is already broke in and tearing up good when we get to it for our 2 hr session and we don't run with bikes it is a quad only series.

Right on, I'll be looking forward to seeing them and getting a report. I can get a sponsorship with TAG but they don't have much out for our machine yet and I need stuff sooner than later.
