High-quality skid plate by ALTRIDER, suitable for the liquid-cooled BMW R1200 GS. Available in two versions covering the MY's 2013-2015 and from 2016 - please select from above!
This skid plate was completely redesigned for the a. m. BMW model. To maintain greater ground clearance, a flat plate of 3/16” (4.76 mm) anodized aluminum is utilized, with no bolts on the bottom side to snag, saving over 1 inch of ground clearance. The plate was designed to be extremely narrow at the bottom to maintain the great cornering ability of the bike. From the leading front corner of the headers to just before the rear tire, the entire bottom side of the motor is shielded from impact. Even the catalytic converter is safeguarded.
The ALTRIDER skid plate is the only design on the market that doesn’t rely on the engine as a mounting point. The front of the ALTRIDER plate gets its brute strength from 3/16” (4.76 mm) stainless steel brackets that mount directly to the frame. The brackets are secured with two sturdy M12 torx frame bolts, preventing the flange from pivoting on impact.
Another key innovation of the ALTRIDER design are the rear mounting points. These long brackets have more leverage, allowing impacts to create shearing or bending forces that break the mount. The ALTRIDER skid plate is held in place with two custom-machined fasteners that replace the center stand pins, lowering the mounting point by a notable 4” which dramatically reduces leverage.
