I just installed the full chassis skid and swing arm skid. I ran into some problems and thought I would share them.

1. The top mount on the full chassis skid. The bolt holes were to small. I had to hone the holes out with a 5/16 drill bit.

2. Swingarm skid. PRM supplies you with two recessed bolts and you are suppose to use your other two OEM bolts to bolt the skid on. The problem with this is the OEM bolts are too short. I had to go to home depot and get new bolts.
Here is the pics and the bolt size. Bolt 8x1.25 ---30 mm long.

Maybe you guys will have better luck then me.

Ditto, same thing on my install of the PRM products. I'm running the .250 skid as that is the one part I don't want to bust up :)

I definitely need to get some protection for the underbelly and swingarm!! I race in the WORCS series plus I do a lot of offroad riding and find myself in some pretty gnarly conditions...

We'll see. I like the PRM product they seem to hold up pretty good!

I need those pictures e-mailed to me. [email protected] They aren't showing up. My PRM swingarm skid (.250) doesn't even come close to fitting.
