F800GS Skid Plate Overview Video

This brief video details the features and benefits of the Touratech skid plate for the BMW F800GS and F700GS.

BMW F800GS, F700GS & F650GS Twin Skid Plate - A motorcycle as off road capable as the BMW F800GS, F700GS, or F650GS Twin deserves proper protection for the engine.  The heavy duty Touratech skid plate offer the best protection for the front and underside of your BMW twin's motor. 

Made of 4mm thich aluminum alloy, this engine guard is designed to give the maximum protection during hard hits on rocks, stumps, or bottoming out the bike off-road.  The folded ridges give the aluminum material best stability and rigity while also keeping the most ground clearance possible for this big adventure tourer.

The F800GS skid plate is mounted using 6 attachment points on a stainless steel base plate.  This thick baseplate is engineered to distribute the load of an impact around a larger area of the engine.

Two plastic sliders which are installed independently of the skid plate prevent mud and dirt buildup and protect the mounting bolt heads from impact. The plastic sliders are removeable and replaceable, look great, and help the big bike slide over rocks and stumps when riding off road.

This skid plate is also designed to protect the BMW F800GS, F700GS, and F650 Twin's vulnerable front mounted oil filter and cooler.  It extends upward in the front to provide full coverage to these two vital components, offering protection from rock and debris impacts from the front tire. 

  • Made of 4mm thick aluminum alloy
  • 6 bolting points on base plate
  • Full coverage for oil filter and oil cooler
  • Fits BMW F800GS, F800GS Adventure, F700GS, F650GS Twin, 2008 and newer
  • Made in Germany by Touratech

Seems very well built and though rather pricey, it looks like it will hold up to the task nicely. Very easy on the eyes however, the only downfall of this particular skid plate is that it doesn't cover the cat. converter. Ask yourself if your particular riding will warrant the need for that extra protection — if not then this product is for you but, if so look elsewhere.
