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 -

    Easy to mount ...good bolt sizes too. It doesn't use wimpy 6mil bolts. I suggest putting anti-sieze on the the bolts if you plan on going long periods of time without removing the skid plate. I had one considerable dismount and bent the left side of the plate up to the outside of the case cover, couldn't expect any more from a plate that took a hit like that. I would recommend this product. EE always performs.

    The orange is not the same as the KTM orange, that is why I did not give it more stars.

    Hard to keep it on

    I don't trail ride more than once per year and enjoy a good day at the track or on the ramp. I wasn't looking for anything too heavy or bulky so i opted for the small design of this skid plate. I came up short in a rhythm section once and it folded the mounts tearing them trough the metal allowing the plate to mold around my linkage. Granted this was 85 ft, it still was not violent enough to make me crash or even come close. I bought another one thinking maybe i hit harder than i realized... round 2 lasted 10 laps and the same thing happened. I don't even remember coming up short on anything so if it hit it wasn't very hard at all. Not very impressive
