PRM Skid Plates

   MUDandDIRT riders have been known to be pretty rough on their bikes and on their skids. Our riders have broken almost every swing arm skid by either bending them into the chain or brakes or breaking the welds. PRM being the #1 skid on the GNCC circuit and a favorite with many other types of riders it was no surprise when we gave the PRM guys a call to order their skids for our prized and very fast 450R.
We opted to go with full protection from a-arms to swing arm. We ordered their .125 a-arm skids because the thicker skid was a little over kill for our riding terrain and we plan on installing some +1 a-arms in the future. We went with the .190 on the belly and the new .250 Z skid for the swing-arm.
   The install went pretty good. On the full chassis skid we ran into some holes that were not drilled exactly on center. But with a file and 5 minutes we had it under control. We didnít feel this to be too bad considering how new in production the bike and the skids are. We have had a lot worse than this on some well-known bikes. The swing arm bolted on with no troubles.
   Something else to point out about the PRM Z swing arm skid is that it does not cover the rear shock linkage. This is a good thing for the racers. If you want to swap the rear linkage out for an Elka or a GT Thunder linkage you can do so and still run a swing arm skid. This is a big plus for any XC type racer or serious type rider. I have run about 75 miles with these thru racing type conditions at a hare scramble track in Maplesville, Al. This is a venue on the Mid South Winter Series Hare Scramble Series and is known as a tough course. We have had no problems with the skids and are really please with the amount of ground clearance the rear swing arm skid gave us. MaD
