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.

    the fit was perfect but it should be removed before oil change because the drain hole doesn't line up perfect

    Great Look

    I have the "Six Days" 350 XCF-W with the factory orange frame. These orange frame guards are the final touch. Shame on the factory for using black ones to cover up the beautiful frame. These are strong and durable. However, the area next to the mid pipe will melt since these do not come with a heat shield. Take the one of the original guards and glue it on. Problem solved.

    Don't case or drag this thing over anything!

    Very disappointed with the quick fastener skid plate. Love the idea - hard plastic, easy to remove, good coverage.... however I've gone through 2, yes two of these already. Both times the skid plate has hit either a rock/root or just bottomed on whoop and tore right through the plastic. The dzues fastener remained, the skid plate did not - tore right through the plastic, twice! If you plan on riding where you might use your skid plate, save your earned cash and go aluminum or at least a different plastic one.

    Perfect fit, no issues.

    As with most EE products, it's intelligently made, fits great, and does the job. Should save the master cylinder if I decide to just be a lazy bum and not do any chain maintenance.

    Protect your swingarm.

    These fit really easy and are a great and cheap way to protect your swing-arm from rocks and crashes. They will pay for themselves when it comes time to sell.
