Reducing Skidplate Acoustic Resonance


Did you add a skid plate? And now it makes obnoxious noise and vibrations? Try this... cheap sound dampening mat with a foil backing... I used "fat mat" because I had some left over from a stereo install.





My Honda CRF250L used to resonate in a tone that made my fillings vibrate... godawful to say the least. Now nothing... it still reflects more sound up than no plate but no more nasty resonance.

That's a good tip.  My old skid plate resonated a lot too but I ended up with another more durable  plate that doesn't do that probably because of padding that secures it to the engine case.  I like the safety cable too because my old one came off way too many times and I'd end up using bailing wire to secure it until I got home.
