Has anyone else had problems with their polaris skid plate welds breaking? I have 2 with broken welds - left A-arm skid plate and the swing arm skid plate. Both broke right at the weld, as if it was not welded corectly. Called my dealer - waiting for a return phone call on whether they will cover the replacement.

Yes - the aftermarket and custum made one are cheaper. A friend of mine just got the pro-armer skids - they look great and alot stronger. If the dealer doesn't fix/replace these I'll just have someone who welds aluminum reweld them. Hopefully they won't break in other places.

I've broken mine twice on the right side. Took it to a friend and added gussets from where the factory welded gusset ends and went forward all of the way to where the cut in the plate ends. We made a cardboard template and cot some stock and welded them in. No problems since. Pretty easy fix and I believe still having the plastic guard on offers added protection. Just think what the brake disk would look like without the plastic still there.

I got the PRM belly skid and A-arm skid plates. Fit and finsish is good. I have run PRM on my 400 for about 3 yrs now and have no complaints with them.
