Another tip is to always ... land rear wheel first, with a little bit of power on, so that the chassis "rolls into the landing" instead of expecting both ends to just absorb all of the load ...
You can't launch a 420+ lb bike like its a 250cc race bike
The 950 can take High speed launches as long as you land like Hilslamer recommends above
Also wheelie over Rough Obstacles to where the plate never touches.
Watch the Factory Riders in the woods
They ride liquid smooth so they don't abuse the the bike
Eliminating the center mounts, puts tremendous stress on the oil tank
This is why I'm still running the OEM Stock Skid Plate
