Well it didn't take that long. After having the quad for 5 days I've cracked the swingarm guard. What a POS guard but what do you expect from plastic. :roll: oh well. I did some research and I'm going with ProArmor's swingarm skidplate. It looks the beefiest(1/4" thick) and I like tow rope cutout in it. Does anyone else have ProArmor protection?

Zero Z400 I'm thinking that the shock linkage protector comes with it. I was at there website and there is no separate listing for it. For that price it better come with it. I guess I'll find out when it arrives!

the shock linkage plate does come with the swing arm plate...but if you buy the suzuki one, they are two different things...and ive been reading that the suzuki ones are thinner too...

Z400 is right. The suzuki skidplate is only 3/16" thick while the Pro Armor is 1/4" AND the suzuki plate is $67CDN more up here even with our crappy exchange rate.

I have all the pro armo guards and can't be any happier with them. We were beating up some rocks and cinder blocks with the swing arm skid to test them out and they were just demolishing everything we hit. As far as the rear shock linkage is concered, the plate does come with the rear skid. Don't forget to put the spacer (included) between the rear shock skid and the rear shock or the skid's fasteners will come lose. Get the pro armor skid, you won't regret it.

The only reason that I didnt get pro armor was the price...I got full skids and bumper from PRM for $30 less then full skids from Pro Amor...I was about to get AC skids, but to get the chassis skid, you need to buy the AC bumper, and AC doesnt make a arm skids, so i just went with the PRM...my dad ordered the bumper without telling me...more work for me to do to pay for it...LOL...

I did ALOT of research before choosing my skids, and I decided on the PRO ARMOR pieces. They are AWESOME, I liked them so much I opened a dealer account with them.
So if anyone is interested email me at [email protected], and I can get you some descent prices on them :)

Thanx,
LOBE

I put on my PRM skids today...I had trouble with the swing arm plate...the bolts seem too long, I had trouble putting them in all the way...I almost stripped a few because of the holes, not being able to see them when its one the ground, so i put it up on the grab bar to put the swing arm plate on...but besides that, they are nice plates...everything else was easy to put on...they look like they will last a long time...

Well I finally got my Pro Armour swing arm skidplate in the mail today. I am very impressed by its construction. The 1/4" aluminum makes it look indestructable! I guess time will tell though. Can't wait to put it to the test! Installation time was about 15 minutes. Too easy!
