Its a full floating canoe..

That so called Shok Block is a joke to...

There are better built skid plates out there...
Yah,its not KTM's design flaw,they didnt build that plate. That's amazing to bolt a skidplate to a oil reservoir. Having a dirt going bike with an oil reservoir under the engine is a excersize in hope.
