I have ordered the J-n-J Racing skid plates for every quad I have owned over the last several years and want to RAVE about the product. Great fit, style and company to say the least. Joel is now offering Rear A-Arm Guards and starting making the Swingarm plate this week. A must have product in my book.

Not raining on your parade, but rave about them? :confused: I have them and installing them was a bitch with those brackets and tightening them not to mention the annoying vibration on the frame.I personally think all theseplates should have some type of mat on them to absorb the vibration. They are pretty thin also. I bought them so i must like them, just not raving about them. :coffee:

I guess the bang for buck is the best thing about them. I ride rocks and they save my cases on everything I ride. Better than factory plastic guards that do NOTHING! I always use 1 inch weather stripping between the frame and skids, sticky on one side and works great.

J N J Great product......

Got my skids the 1st of the week. Picked up a roll of 3/4" window seal sticky on one side foam on the other, worked great.
Install was tricky, but when done skids worked very well. I needed it for this last race, rocks every were. It seamed if i looked at a rock i hit it this weekend.
I give the(install)a 6 out of 10
(skids chassis and front arms) 10 out of 10
worked perfect/no rattle/very happy.....:thanks::xx:

Very good product and great coustomer service. I purchased mine from eBay.
I installed the full set on my xx. As recommended on here I installed them with stick on weatherstripping, = no rattles. You just run a border of weatherstripping around the perimeter of the plates. I used the grey stick on stripping, 3/4 wide x 3/16 thick. I only had one small fitment issue, one hole on the main plate was a 16th off, I had to dremel the hole a little to align it.

i just installed moose racing body and rear skid, only reason i bought them is because they were on closeout from parts unlimited for cheap cheap, they seem to be thick enough, but i dont like the welds and they do vibrate, install was pretty simple, i also bought the rear pro armor one which was also on closeout, it is smaller than the moose one but hands down better quality, just waiting till i destroy the moose one to put the pro armor one on

Pro Armor rear plate fit's like a glove, main chassis will need some tweaking. At least mine did, but no vibrations.

Even if you don't ride rough in bolder strewn areas just the small stuff in time will pit and ding your under carrage. I think for the price J & J would be a better buy but I'm going to hold off until I can do some more research.

I picked these up when I got my XX, installation could definitely have been easier with the crappy mounting equipment they give you and my chassis skid snapped at the front where it connects to the front bumper. But it is a good price for skids, even if they have some issues, they might need some individual tweaking though.

My rear bolts in the body plate didn't align too well. Had to improvise. One of the rear arms wasn't so hot either. For the price, you can't complain

These were a good deal awhile back, but for a few dollars more you could of got genuine Honda that fit perfect. Well around $215.00 shipped for all 6 pieces.

I have JnJ skids from ebay and they are pretty good. Fit was a little tight getting all the cable clamps on the frame. And there is a drain hole for changing oil but it does catch some oil on it. But the price is right and they do the job.
But if you are looking for premium quality skid plates I would look at http://www.ricochetoffroad.com/
Although I can't speak for the 700xx, I bought them for my 400ex after lots of research looking for the best plates and they were perfect. And they have anodize color options!


Hope I don't sound like an advertisement...:)

Just a tad, lol. There still pricey @355 plus $28.54 in freight. I like the anodized options though for sure! IMO The Genuine Honda Skids are a much better deal, "now that there on clearance" and are proven to fit like a glove.
