We carry a Full Line of Yamaha UTV Skid Plates including Aluminum Skid Plates, UHMW Skid Plates, and Hybrid Skid Plates for most Yamaha models.
Our "Hybrid" Yamaha UTV Skid Plates utilize a 3/16" Aluminum Skid with a 1/4" UHMW Overlay. By combining Aluminum and UHMW you are getting the best of both types of materials. Hybrid kits are the most expensive of the three kits available but you are getting the best protection for your Yamaha UTV.
Our Yamaha UTV Aluminum Skid Plates are Constructed from 3/16" 5052 H-32 Aluminum for exceptional durability and excellent weight to strength ratio. Aluminum Skid Plates are generally lower in cost than Hybrid and UHMW kits which can be a major factor when making a purchase.
UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) plastic is lightweight and provides a smooth and slick surface which helps your Yamaha UTV glide over obstacles easier than Aluminum Skid Plates. The smooth surface of the UHMW layer greatly reduces the chances of getting your Yamaha 'Hung Up" on obstacles and is much quieter than Aluminum. UHMW is also shock absorbing and will not dent like Aluminum can. UHMW Skid Plates are generally more expensive than Aluminum Skid Plates but generally lower in price than a Hybrid kit.
Aluminum Skid Plates provide great all around protection at an affordable price for your Yamaha UTV. If you are riding in mostly rocky conditions, we generally recommend going with the Hybrid Skids or UHMW Skids. No matter which kit you choose you will be adding significant protection to your Yamaha UTV.
Skid Plate Kits are available for complete frame, engine, and differential protection as well as floor board protection for most Yamaha models. Convenient access holes for all routine maintenance and mounting hardware is guaranteed for life on all Ricochet kits.
