    I didn't want to hijack the TCI skid plate thread so here we go.

    -TCI products skid plate with engine guards, .190" thick $240+shipping

    -MSR $95

    -Ricochet .160" $105

    -IMMIX (3/16 or 5/32 where applicable) $95+shipping

    -Happy Trails 5/32" $75+shipping

    -Moose $100+shipping

    The TCI looks like it would offer the most protection but at the cost of weight and $.

    Do you guys have experience with these other skid plates and by any chance know which one offers the most side engine protection out of the bunch?

    According to this....

    The Moose and Happy Trail units are just re-branded Ricochet.

    Keep in mind when pricing them, most of the biggie online stores have free shipping for orders after a certain price point.

    Most of them do look quite similar and are likely re-branded or copied Ricochet.

    The MSR is different. It looks to have taller side "wings" but less upward protection towards the rear.

    Any comparisons between the MSR and Ricochet?

    I've decided that the dualsport and adventure TWs I'm building will have detachable 1/4-inch heat treated 1045 hot rolled steel skidplates that double as shovel spoons, with screw-on handles that double as crutches for tire repairs. The plates will clamp to double downtubes, part of the new chromemoly frames. Case sideguards will not be part of the spoon.
