Yes, yes, KTM, we know you were trying to save weight with the stock skid plate, but an easily shattered thin alloy? Really? Which is why, if you’ve dirt or gravel adventure fever, the first stock piece to replace on your 990 or 950 is the Skid Plate. Nothing will end a trip or engine faster than all the oil draining out after a rock’s gone through the sump. So this skid plate is better insurance, that you’ll get out of any plan touted by a gecko. The plate is a hearty piece of industrial kit composed of 4mm aluminum, mounted on a tubular frame to help spread the force of any impacts, which mean’s it has survived a Baja outing. Also compared to other brands out there, and we’ve done our comparative homework outfitting separate 990, this skid plate provides higher side coverage; preventing branches grabbing the wiring or reg/rec in your KTM’s tender underbelly. That said, the installation is a bit fiddly as it requires the relocation of the positive terminal block, and we found the relocation bracket needed to be angled additionally to achieve a proper fit. Still, better a little extra work that your 990 spilling its innards all over the trail. A nice and convenient touch is, once installed, the tubular frame pivots it quickly out of the way for oil changes.
