10. P3 Carbon Skid Plate, $189.95-$219.95
Buying someone insurance as a holiday gift might seem awkward, but that’s basically what you would be doing if you give someone a P3 Carbon Skid Plate. We’re fans of P3 Carbon’s products as we have experience with them, including on our recent DirtBikes.com/Rocky Mountain ATV-MC/Vertex Husqvarna TX 300 project bike. P3’s skid plates are hand-made in the U.S.A. from a composite material that contains Kevlar, carbon fiber, and biaxial fiberglass, which are combined using P3’s specialized resins to create an impact-resistant plate with a smooth finish and a seamless construction. P3 molds and fits their plates to a specific make and model of machine so each plate installs easily using P3’s quick-release bracket. Each skid plate extends from the branch of the downtubes back to the end of the frame in front of the linkage/swingarm with slight variations for each application. The skid plate also extends over each side to protect both engine side covers.

7. Motion Pro Steering Stem Bearing Tool, $142.99
Sad but true, our dirtbike’s steering stem bearings take a pounding and yet they are often the most neglected bearings on the entire machine, mostly because the average home mechanic lacks the proper tool to remove and replace them. Motion Pro’s Steering Stem Bearing Tool is a proper tool at a reasonable price. The tool comes with everything you need to remove and install steering stem bearings, including the tapered roller bearing at base of steering stem, but Motion Pro makes it clear that the removal process requires cutting outer sheet metal cage from bearing assembly.

Its blue anodized bearing protectors are made from 6061 billet aluminum and laser etched for easy identification.
