The skid plate it awsome, and it looks great. Just do not put Blue Locktite on the screws, just do it on the bolts, you will have to heat up screws to heat them out of you Locktite them. I upgraded the screws to bolts, so I no longer have this problem.
I've used other brands of radiator guards in the past and when I got my new bike these were the only ones available. I was shocked as to how strong these things are, way tougher than anything that I have used. Will definitely be ordering these for my next bike.
Installation was super easy, most of the bolts lined up properly. (Pro-tip, thread in each bolt by hand for 4 or 5 rotations. This allows the plate to move around and get the bolts in straight before tightening).
Took the bike out the next day and my wife used that skid plate. It works as advertised and offers better protection than most skid plates out there for the XT250. Metal > plastic.
Great product, exceptional quality for the price, installation was as simple as a few bolts.. Highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to replace the stock guard with something that will provide significantly more protection.
