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.

I ride a lot of gravel roads and some of it is big gravel for heavy truck traffic. I was concerned with the large gravel pinging off my crankcase and my oil drain plug hanging just below the frame tubes so, I ordered this for a little peace of mind. Easy install and perfect fit on the KLR. It did increase engine noise a bit but, not noticeable while I'm moving. Best price of any skid plate I looked at and looks and feels bulletproof. I like that it protects the water pump and alternator covers on the sides. Great product at a fair price.Read All Reviews

Initially the skid plate looks great and feels like it would hold up very well, unfortunately that's where the good ends. With the provided bolts, there was no way to get it to work on my bike. The quality of the bolts and threads are also cheap. The pre drilled hole to drain oil is no where near close to my oil drain bolt and the only way to get to my oil drain plug would be to basically completely remove the back tab that slides between the engine cases and the frame. If I have to pull this thing off for every oil change I doubt I'll be putting it back on. I may call about returning it.Read All Reviews
