ATV Skid Plates

 We all know how often rough terrain can threaten the bottom of your ATV and that is why you will need the protection of ATV skid plates. I ride in the mountains of Colorado every year; and it never fails that used to get rocks damaging the bottom of my ATV. I would get them caught in the chain drive, and even in the fuel line! Last year I bought a ATV skid plate that saved the bottom of my quad and I've never felt more assured about taking a few more risks, in terms of terrain.

The last thing you want to do is have to worry about the belly of your quad; and yes, it is susceptible if you don't protect it. There are all sorts of swing arm skid pans and belly pans available, and they are all made of durable stainless steel, or space age plastic. They do add weight to the quad, but it's not a risk that I was willing to take.

ATV Skid Plates That Are Inexpensive
Cheap skid plates will crack if you hit something hard and they do not like cold weather and they will shatter on impact. They have also been known to show stress cracks after six months to a year. There are however ATV skid plates made of either steel or plastic that will stand the hot and cold temperatures and will not crack.

When you are looking for ATV parts, especially skid plates, try and find ones that do not deform on impact, like some of the aluminum ones, and also a major benefit to plastic is that it will not rust. It's important to guard all your ATV parts and accessories, and the skid plate will protect the under belly of your ATV. Remember that skid plates are for safety purposes and you must read the instructions before installation.
