We at Sik50s sell a carbon fiber skid plate. It retails for the same as most aluminum skid plates out there but stands out above the rest!



In stock and ready to ship!

i think aluminum wouldnt be a very good material to make a skidplate out of, at least for a xr style mount. it has so much flex in front of the welds a fatiuge crack is enevidable. c.f. has properties to withstand that abuse. for any other bits, a gas cap(is that possible?)wheels(am i nuts?)hubs...

this gives me an idea for a new topic in the roost arena :twisted: seeya

you guys are nuts! i totalled an aluminum skidplate coming up short on a 30 foot double, did not feel good. it bent so many places like creased it back over the 2 footpeg bolts. if that was a carbon fiber skidplate it would have shattered and my cases would have been cracked. :twisted:

A complete carbon fiber bike would be good for...? uh a show bike? and even than IMO it'd look like horrible, overkill.

We (Jardine) had this bike in our booth at the Indy show. It's a Synergy Q450, manufactured by a supplier and friend of teh company. The frame is 100% carbon fiber and the bike weighs something like 218lbs completely fueled up. Point being, a complete carbon fiber bike is very possible...
