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

    Frank in NM

    perfect fit

    Installs easily and provides excellent protection for frame and engine cases. The zip ties are easy to manage on install and so far after 10 hours of rugged enduro conditions only one has gone missing and the skid plate stayed in place. Product comes with extra zips so just a spare handy and your good to go! Would by this product again and recommend it.

  • Ricochet Offroad Skid Plate

    James in IN

    Well Constructed

    The skid plate is nice thick aluminum with really nice looking welds. It fits real well and wraps around the clutch and stator covers nicely. The attachment method makes it kind of hard to reinstall/install the plate. Overall, it is a very nice and strong skid plate.

    T.M. Designworks Full Coverage Plastic Skid Plate

    CORY in CA

    Good protection if it stays on.

    I bought this for my new 2015 KTM 500 EXC because it seemed to have great protection and it does, if it stays on. The brackets are junk and after a day in the rocks it was hanging off. I had to zip tie it back on to finish the ride.
