After seeing Gary's (scuzz) torn CV Boot, I began to think i could suffer the same fate. I know the utility guys have brush guards on thier a-arm skid plates to protect thier CV joints, so I'm searching for the same to fit the XX. This is one I found so far, made by Ricochet and sold as a four piece set for $125. I'll keep searching too.

Ricochet makes the best skids period. I have a set on all my other bikes.

I know PRM makes front and rear guards as well as full and swing arm skids. I have the rear guards but not the front. I think they were $85 for the set. Very nice quality. I have the Ricochet brand swing arm guard on my 400EX and it's very nice quality also.

It seems like all the pics I find of Rear arm guards are with the bike tipped up and no clear shot of a brush guard from the front, is there coverage there? Can someone post up a pic to show?

What is that piece that covers the rear "swing arm" it goes up around the rear suspension .Is this overkill?
Brush guard, Its helps protect the CV boots from being torn by sticks and such that may be kicked up by front tires.

Yes it is a shame to cover it up.

So, if you had to piece meal (to hide from wife). Do you get front, full, or rear skid first?

I was thinking front because factory has something for middle and rear frame (better than nothing). and rears last because they have something that represents a plastic web.. not sure what this is supposed to be.

Get a new Wife first then buy everything, just kidding.:D it's probably best to cover the engine first then the rear.

I went with the PRM full set because they recess the mounting bolt locations. The Ricochet set that I saw had the bolt heads sticking down and in the rocky places I ride, I didnt want to have to drill out the bolts when it came time to take them off. If you ride only in sandy areas i guess this wouldnt be a concern

The Pro Armor skids have recessed mounting points as well. I like having two separate skid plates so that it is a little easier to remove for oil changes and sprocket swaps.

Looks good. They didnt have any when I got mine. PRM was the only one making them at the time. I like the 2 piece plate as well

im just going to throw this out there i cut the side plastics on mine do to the nerf bars being instaled (looks sweet) if you where wondering but eny way you can get to the sproket from the side easier and with the prm skid you dont have to take to change the oil it has a hole cut for the plug
