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.

  • Cycra Speed Armor High Impact Skid Plate

    Cycra Speed Armor High Impact Skid Plate

    Jeff in CA

    Good for protecting the cases

    This skid plate was a good general protector for rocks and other things hitting the cases. If you are looking for a solid skid plate that can "skid" across stuff, then look at a higher end product. this is held on by heavy duty zip ties that will break if you contact them to the ground (rocks, hard dirt, logs, whoops, etc.)

  • Enduro Engineering Clutch Slave Cylinder Guard

    Enduro Engineering Clutch Slave Cylinder Guard

    Will in AL

    Great guard but needs better instructions

    This guard is really cool and protects your fragile slave cylinder as well as looking super trick. My only complaint is I felt that the included instructions were lacking in detail especially since they didn't mention that you will probably lose clutch fluid and possibly have to bleed the system after installation.

    T.M. Designworks Full Coverage Plastic Skid Plate

    jeromy in NE

    Favorite item

    This is my favorite skid plate out of the half dozen I've bought and installed on various bikes in the last year. Rugged, no rattling, no frame noise, doesn't stick on rocks your sliding over like some of the alluminum ones tend to do.
