When riding an adventure touring bike like the V-Strom DL650 off-road, protection for the underside of your engine is critical. This skid plate from Touratech acts as armor for the bottom of your V-Strom, keeping it protected rock, stump, and debris impacts while riding off the pavement.

The V-Strom skid plate is constructed out of strong and lightweight aluminum alloy, and rubber mounted to the front of the DL650's engine so that no damage to engine case can occur.

Very easy to install. Comes with all necessary hardware and instructions. No modifications to motorcycle are necessary.

Installed the skid plate on my Wee Strom as soon as possible. I did not like how all of the road gunk was getting flung against the oil filter. Initial install was tedious because the rear mounting points were held in with 5lbs of factory locktite, but was still not bad. After changing the oil with it on, easy job! 4 bolts drop the plate and leves the vibration isolated bracketry on the bike. I am going to try and find stainless steel wing nuts for those bolts so I ont have to lay down to get a wrench on them. Overall, the plate is beefy and well constructed, like the look too. 5 stars Touratech! P.S. it fits perfectly level with the HT center stand.

I put this skid plate on my new 2012 V-Strom Adventure. The Adventure model comes with tubular guards that protect the tank & loop down in front of the engine. I had also added a centerstand before mounting the Touratech skid plate. No problemo. The skid plate fits fine with a center stand & Adventure model guards. Well made product. Instructions ain't great. Put the plate brackets on with the bike on the side stand. That's easier. Centerstand gets in the way if you don't retract it.

Like this product. A bit smaller that others but still beafy enough for what'll do with the bike. Happy to report that the lower plastic cowling of the '13 Adventure model does still fit over this skid plate. A little bit needs to be dremmelled off one of the ventings on the right side of the plate and a slightly longer bolt.

This thing is a work of art. Almost too nice to put on the bike. Quality of the welds unbelievable. Perfectly Simple clear instructions - no words just drawings. Fit like a glove. Existing Rear mounting bolt on bike was tough to remove.

Received and installed the Touratech Skid Plate for my 2012 Suzuki V-strom Adventure. The skid plate is of high quality with the hardware being packaged in groups for easy installation. Only problem, as mentioned in the review above, was with removing the front kickstand bolt due to Suzuki's over use of locktite. I have the OEM Suzuki centerstand and the skid plate installed perfectly. Touratech's customer service is the best.

Put this skid plate on last year, and got to test it this year on an AMA dual sport ride in the Rocky Mountains. I totally slammed into a huge rock with it right dead center of the plate, in between the pipe and filter. I hit the rock so hard that it almost threw me off the seat. The skid plate did it's job and took most of the brunt of the force. The pipe did get bent, but without the Touratech skid plate on there with it's thickness, my weekend would have been over and I would have need a 4x4 to rescue me. I rode all the way home 1,500 miles after that, with only a minor dent in the pipe. Worth every penny!
