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.

I purchased a Ricochet skid for my WR450f and loved it. Fit and finish was perfect, and I put it through heck bouncing off rocks. I am convinced it saved my water pump multiple times. I recently upgraded to a XCF-W 350 and ordered another Ricochet skid. Overall quality is good, but the front holes were definitely in the wrong place. Maybe they fit another model, by my front motor mount is in the wrong place. After drilling new holes and chasing threads on the mounts, it should work great. Keep in mind, this is a heavy skid (almost 3 lbs with hardware). It will take any abuse though. Pro tip, A little sound deadener makes a big difference in engine noise.Read All Reviews
