Default Installation and Review: Roest Racing Skid Plate for Yamaha Nytro

I just received my new Roest Racing Skid Plate for Yamaha Nytro, and was impressed with what arrived and wanted to share some impressions with everyone.

The kit arrived via US Mail, Priority, all sealed in one small neat box.

NOTE:
All photos are raw, untouched, shot in ambient light, with a hand-held camera on a white background. So you can see the color/white balance has NOT been corrected.

Upon opening the box I found it well stuffed with crumpled newspaper to protect the Skid Plate in shipping.

Removing the packaging revealed my brand new custom YAMAHA BLUE Skid Plate.

It should be noted that I ordered this in a custom color for my sled as I wanted to have more contrast than the stock BLACK plate both for show as well as for photography.

Roest was more than accommodating in my request!

The package contains 3 items.

The Skid Plate

The Nuts/Bolts pack

The mounting instructions.

First shot of the skid plate.

Having been in the marine business for years, I have done a ton of powdercoating and know the game very well.

I was happy to see that whoever Roest is using has done a competent job. There were NO runs, NO drips, NO missed/thin spots, NO bubbles on the metal. This tells me the metal was properly cleaned and prepared before the electrostatic charge was placed on it and the powder applied before going into the oven. It also says that the sprayer did not apply too much powder as there were no runs.

I also detected NO burrs under the powder. This all suggests a good job in prep!

In this image you can also see where it has been run through a CNC milling machine to remove some metal to make it fit better. The cuts on the milling "feel" very clean and smooth.

In this image you can see 5 small mounting plates that have been riveted to the skid plate.
The rivets at the bottom are countersunk into the plate, while the other 4 sets are surface mounted.
They all appeared/felt Tight and looked solid.
Alignment on all of the plates was very clean, and not off.

This is the outside of the plate that will see the rocks, where you can see the other side of the rivets.

While my intention was to have this mounted on my sled this afternoon, the package didn't clear my local post office early enough for me to get that done.

So it will be installed next week, with the rest of this review to be posted then.
