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.

    Enduro Engineering Aluminum Skid Plate

    I used this several times on rocky rides at Hatfield-McCoy. It is very durable and very easy to take on and off for cleaning and servicing. It is somewhat difficult to see the oil sight glass, but it does protect the sight glass.

    Worth The Money

    Had this puppy on for over a year. I ride in some brutal areas that im always climbing over rocks and logs and i have not had one issue with the guard coming off or any lack of protection. In my opinion plastic guards are the way to go, way cheaper than aluminum or carbon fiber. They also don't have any annoying rattle like the aluminum guards. Two thumbs up for Acerbis.

    Poor Engineering from KTM

    It took one day at the track for the skid plate to be torn off the bike. Seems out of the ordinary for KTM to put something out there that doesn't hold up. I've witnessed another skid plate of theirs fail on a different day at the track. Apparently KTM doesn't have a warranty for impacts on their skid plates. Would not recommend their quick release skid plate. Spend your money on something able to do it's job and take impacts.
