Dirt Bike Skid Plates and Guards

Imagine yourself riding a wicked trail, navigating each section with technical perfection, practically sailing through the woods with near ease. Why risk damaging or cracking your engine cases or other things the trail might throw out you when you can prevent it with a skid plate? A good skid plate can protect your bike and allow you to keep your mind on riding.

Dirt bike skid plates are no joke, and Rocky Mountain ATV/MC understands that. Your motorcycle is a phenomenal machine, but it isn’t invincible. Rocks kicked up from your front tire can cause serious damage and require expensive repairs. A good skid plate can help you avoid that by acting as a solid guard and helping protect your engine from any unexpected impacts.

Skid plates are available in aluminum, carbon fiber and plastic, but every material is made to withstand abuse. If you frequent the trails, you can’t afford to put off getting one. It only takes a single rock to make you wish you had one.

We stock skid plates from brands like Ricochet, Works Connection, Cycra, Acerbis, Polisport and others. (For original stock replacements, take a look at our OEM section.) Each skid plate is designed specifically for the bike it fits, so you know you’re getting maximum protection regardless of your choice. Enter your motorcycle’s make, model and year to see what is available for your bike.

    good skid plate

    Very good thick aluminum skid plate. It really takes a beating on the rocks. My only problem is the drain hole is not near big enough. It drains good when u first pull the plug but once it starts to slow down it drains all in the skid plate. I fixed it by cutting it bigger. And I bought one for my 2013 KTM 250xcw and it had some ears that came under the peg mounts which caught on some chain link and threw me over the bars... I cut them off too. But I like the thick quality and the fit on both my yz and xcw .

    crappy protection

    This item looks good and bolts on with ease but has 0 durability. Paid alot and cased on 1 double and completely ripped out all mounting screws on impact. It did save my case but I would hope more than once. Go aluminum.

    Well-designed --- Fits Like a Glove

    I got a Kawasaki KLX140L this past Spring. The first time I took it over rough terrain, the stock, plastic skid plate cracked down the right side of the frame. I bought this skid plate and installed it with no problem. (You must have T30 and T40 Torx bits to install this skid plate.) My only concern is how well the bolts will hold up to the pounding, as there is no indentation in the skid plated for them and they â??stick outâ?? below the plate, especially using the washer. That being said, the skid plate, itself, looks strong enough to take any beating I give it. I have now done an oil change and found that I can still use my 17 mm wrench, although there is little room to turn the wrench. Patience is the key. The drain hole in the plate is correctly aligned so that there is no problem with the oil spilling.
