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.

    Excellent protection and peace of mind.

    I have had a chain break and crack a case. It will ruin your day and cost a lot of money to repair. I purchased this for peace of mind. It has held up great and it fit perfect. Excellent instructions and took ten minutes to install. You don't need to bleed the clutch after installation if you follow directions.

    Great product that holds up to the abuse

    I've raced hare scrambles for several years with this skid plate and I love it. It takes constant abuse from rocks and logs like a champ. It's light, durable, and quiet.

    Good coverage, but bad mounting!

    At first I was pumped when I mounted the skid plate. But as soon as I draged it across a rock or log it would come off. It has thin aluminum mounting brackets that bend really easy. If you add more brackets and change them to steel it might stay on. A lot of money for the hassle, wish I went with aluminum!
