This Bumpskid was one of my first purchases. I had my 2018 RTL about 3 weeks before I ordered/installed this product. I never bottomed out or hit a big pothole but I wanted the added protection of this product. One of the first things you do during install is to remove the factory skid. Couldn’t believe I already had scratches on original, also couldn’t believe Can Am would put such a cheap skid on such a nice machine. I do not want many LED’s on my Spyder, but the bumpskid w LED made sense to me. Extra visibility, does help light up the road and really looks cool. I feel the Bumpskid and Missing Belt Guard is a must for every Spyder. Extremely thick and well made, very bright LED’s.
