ek5446 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Chain case side dented. Hit a stump

Hit... Landed on.... either way needs a fixing. Its not bad by any means. Probably going to pull the chain case cover and pound back into shape.
But is it worth replacing the entire part? Anyone done this. Its like $60 from Doo. and looks like it just rivets on.

Pound it out. Thats what were going to do. But the thought of replacing the part has crossed our mind.

Ours is just a little dent.

But the paint had cracked. So fun!!!!

Those rivets are royal pain to drill/ grind off. Should be able pound back out though if itís not too bad.

Best available protection is the RPM composites skid plate. 3 pieces and is pretty much bombproof, drive over with a truck proof, slides over rocks like butter, and snow doesnít stick or build up on it.

^^^^ This is a great skid plate. $$$ but I like being "bombproof" as Summit74 said.

EDIT: I found it real easy to remove the chaincase piece to drain/fill at the end of last season. Loosen a couple bolts on the center section, remove the 2 or 3 holding the side piece and it slid right out (went right back in too).

Yes itís way more than the plastic doo skid plate, but it actually offers protection to the critical areas of the drivetrain. Good insurance and can easily be removed as Adam said above to change oil and etc. also when you sell your sled, it come off easy and can be put on the next 850 you purchase. People will spend $400 on exhaust can that makes noise, why not put that money to some bombproof protection that is going keep you riding and avoid down time in middle of winter.

Iíve been running one of those since 09 on various machines. I quite ripping front heat exchangers off on the XP Chassis. Excellent protection.

Smoke a boulder the size of a VW beetle a few years back. Sled flew 40ft one way I flew 30 ft the other way. Rolled sled back over, couldnít even tell it hit a thing.
