        Skid plate, great coverage especially for rocks

        Easy install, but I used the original bolts with threadlocker added. Using the Torx bolts did not seem to be an enhancement but would be a pain if i need to remove the diff cover. Excellent design and will do exactly what I want, which is to protect the diff. from the very large rocks which are always on the trails.

        A Great Cover

        I bought these skid plates because I wanted protection for my differentials but didn't want to pay for a whole new cover for my Dyna 44. I painted them and look great. Rear one red with black lettering and front one left black with red lettering. (They come in black) My advice is to be ready to change the differential fluid and RTV. I tried to get away from it without changing anything and once it leaks it continues to leak. I re-did everything and its good now, no leaks. So buy differential fluid, buy RTV and get ready to do a change. Search for videos in YouTube on how to do it. Only problem I had was one of the allen screws got messed up while I was torqueing it. Other than that, they are great covers. and will do the job.
