If we had to name one thing Honda does well, it would be building machines that are both reliable and durable. Whether it’s lawn equipment, powersports machines, automobiles, or jet engines, Honda goes above and beyond to make sure their products are designed with longevity in mind. Honda Pioneers are no exception. Straight from the factory, Pioneer UTVs are some of the toughest machines on the planet. They come trail-ready and eager to hit the ground running with a proven off-road performance pedigree. Having said that, there are still a few things owners can do to improve the armoring of their UTVs. In particular, one of our foremost recommendations is addressing the lack of undercarriage protection with a Honda Pioneer skid plate kit.
Without a lift kit or larger tires, Honda Pioneer skid plates will do wonders for protecting the numerous components on the underside of the machine that deserve protection. Stock Pioneers have decent ground clearance, but they are still susceptible to scraping and high-centering on uneven terrain. With Honda Pioneer skid plates, however, you won’t have to second guess that technical route or backtrack because of jutting rocks, roots, and other hazards. Everything Honda Offroad is eager to help you protect your UTV for the long haul, so we offer all the top name brand Honda Pioneer skid plate kits and components from Strong Made, Trail Armor, and Ricochet Off-Road.
When comparing Honda Pioneer skid plates, it’s easy to recognize some are clearly better than others. A good skid plate should be thick where the joints overlap, be able to endure repeated punishment, provide complete coverage, and incorporate proper drainage into its design. Without enough correctly spaced drain holes, poorly-designed skid plates will trap mud and other debris in a hurry. Not only does this make them difficult to clean, but overaccumulation of water accelerates corrosion while excessive organic matter increases the potential for starting fires on hot summer days.
Owners who want to upgrade their machine with complete undercarriage protection should look at our various skid plate kits. Whether you have a Pioneer 500, 700, or 1000, we have a skid plate kit available for you. Our full-frame Ricochet Off-Road Honda Pioneer aluminum skid plate kit is ideal for Pioneer 500 models. This three-piece set incorporates a built-in bash plate and is guaranteed to never rattle loose with low profile, heat treated, and zinc-plated steel mounting hardware. If you need a Honda Pioneer skid plate kit for your Pioneer 700 or 1000, then you should consider the Trail Armor full skid plate kit. This premium option is made of a proprietary blend of high molecular weight polymer with complete undercarriage protection. The polymer plates are ultra-lightweight, corrosion proof, and absorb impacts better than aluminum while also being more resistant to dents. In addition to being durable and equipped with a superior drainage system, the Trail Armor Honda Pioneer skid plate kit wraps around the edges of your machine for improved sliding abilities and protection to your frame edges, wheel wells, and rocker panels.
On the other hand, some owners just want some added protection for their CV boots and a-arms. If you simply need Honda Pioneer a-arm skid plates, then the Strong MadeStick Stoppers are your best option. Available for both the front and rear, these Honda Pioneer a-arm skid plates do exactly as their name implies - they protect your CV boots and a-arms from sticks and rocks that threaten to incapacitate your UTV. Though they offer great coverage, their advanced engineering design also allows for both easy installation and cleaning.
There are innumerable hazards on the trail you need to consider while driving your UTV. Unfortunately, some of the most important parts and systems in your machine are unprotected and exposed on the undercarriage, so investing in proper protection will save you tons of money down the road by preventing unnecessary damage. Thankfully, there are tons of great Honda Pioneer skid plate kits available to ensure your machine gets the protection it deserves. At Everything Honda Offroad, we carry all the top name brand products to help you protect your machine for the long haul.
