    Ricochet Skid Plate

    After a couple of close calls with some rocks that were hidden in deep grass, I sprung for a skidplate. Decided to get it in black anodized finish to match the bike a little better. Hopefully the anodizing won't wear off quickly.


    Here is a picture comparing the stock with the Ricochet

    Your old skid plate looks like mine. I need what you got but my horse is spending all my money. I'll just be careful a little longer. Fingers crossed.

    Looks nice!

    Never knew you could get it in black. I guess you could get it powder coated, if you wanted to. Interesting. Thanks for sharing. I don't want to HighJack: Trailscout you need one of these, I saw your rides on YouTube, Wow!

    When you click to purchase, it will ask what color. I purchased 2 Ricochet skid plates for our 2 TW200's and they came in today! The problem I have is with no instructions, I can't figure it out! I think I received the wrong ones. Any body that has one please let me know if this is what they look like. I'm posting 2 pics.photo 1.PNGphoto 2.JPG I will post an introductory post soon to introduce myself to the forum. Right now it's almost 11;00 pm and I'm tinkering with the T Dubs in the garage!

    Those definitely look different. The mount points don't match, and the oil drain hole doesn't look like it would line up. They may have sent the wrong ones.

    I ordered a plain jane Richochet off of ebay and just installed it this week. It was $79 shipped. I like the anodized ones, but figured the plain aluminum would match my frame close enough (that and it was 10 bucks cheaper ). Much thicker than the stock plate and heavy - I should have weighed it, but I estimate at least 4 lbs of metal. I probably don't want to know .

    Yeah, dat ain't da one I got! Thanks HappyHiker I am sure I was mailed the wrong ones. I sent an email to Ebay seller and hope to hear back from him tomorrow. Bare aluminum is defiantly a closer match to frame. I may "under coat" mine anyway!

    I ordered one 3 weeks ago from Utah. Installed it in less than an hour. The one you have is not the correct one. I rode the bike for 2 days then removed the skid plate and applied Xtreme Dynamat sound deadening mat to the upper side. Made a difference in reflective sound. Not a whole lot but it is quieter. I would post pics but I'm not very computer savvy. Sorry. Mark
