skid plate for '14 ktm 500xcw ?

'14 KTM 500 XC-W(yeah, the more off-road version they didn't put skid plates on ).

I like the idea of the quick release if they aren't self-release if you catch my drift. I'd like light weight, little sound reflection, good protection. And of course a good price

Most of my riding is in West Tn with a good bit of mud so I'd rather have one that doesn't collect mud. We have very few rocks, mostly small, loose ones. Lots and lots of log crossings. I do take a trip to Colorado every year or so...

Acerbis makes the KTM one, not a bad skid if you like poly. Acerbis sells one that's bolt on as well. I like the emperor racing aluminium. If you want to spend the coin the p3 is really nice. http://p3carbon.com/shop/ktm-sp/p3-b...-450500-12-14/

That flatland looks good. Simple, small, drain holes.

The OEM quick release plate is excellent but is not very heavy duty. I cracked (broke) two of these, one on my '04 540 EXC and one on my '08 HTR 350 XCF-W. If you do not ride in rocks, you should be OK with the quick release plate. I had to switch over to aluminum plates for better and longer-lasting coverage.
