Fit Perfectly, Easy Installation
After doing some research for a good skid plate for my 2014 DR-Z 400S, I kept coming across a lot of recommendations for this skid plate from Devol. Living in Canada, options for venders are somewhat limited, and I was weary of having to deal with cross-border shipping. After reading many reviews from sites like Amazon, eBay, etc., I found many complaints that, while less expensive than ordering direct from the US, the skid plate did not always fit properly, or required some tinkering to get a proper fit. Not wanting to deal with the potential headache, I bit the bullet and decided to order directly from Devol and could not be happier with my decision. Devol was kind enough to offer a service member discount and their customer service team made the shipping process seamless. All in all, the maybe $50 I would have saved by purchasing from a vendor was well worth the guaranteed excellent build quality, condition, and 10-minute installation that fit perfectly. There were some complaints about noise with skid plates on the DR-Z, but I can hardly notice - I think the vents Devol has on their plate helps with this, and helps reduce the amount of crud that would gather with other non-vented skid plates. It looks a lot meaner too! If you're in Canada, skip the headache and buy direct. Will definitely be purchasing more products from Devol in the future.
