Aluminium Adventure Skid Plates. 

Stainless steel rear mounting bracket with side mounted bolts for a smooth snag free underside. Excellent underside ground clearance and length protection. Front rear adjustment allows for multiple crash bar installation combinations. Increased vents for cooling and fording. Oil and filter changes can be done with the plate installed.

Welded Plate Features:

Laser cut from 4mm aluminium and CNC folded. Double sided TIG welded seams to provide a strong shell with a durable black powder coat finish. 

Bolted Plate features:

Same proven design and laser cut from aluminium with a 4mm base plate and 3mm side plates CNC folded for a precise fit. There are several bolted plates on the market these days but the Ravetech design allows for the bottom plate to fold up around the outside of the side plates making for a very strong snag free construction. being bolted provides a plate that can truly absorb impact and should you treat it rough enough to bend it severely then it can be dismantled for repair. We are also delighted to offer combinations of colours to bling up your Strom. 

All these skid plate are suitable for a variety of crash bars including 2012-2018 Suzuki OEM, Givi TN3101, Kappa KN3101 and 2012+ SW Motech SKU: SBL.05.757.10000.B. Which are most commonly used on the new generation DL650 (Glee) 2012- present day model.

We have an adaptor kit available should your bike is fitted with the older type crash bars such as Givi TN532 and SW Motech SKU: SBL.05.674.10000.B which are more commonly used on the DL650 (Wee) 2004-2011. Please see the other listing.

Simply click on which plate you require when placing your order.

I personally beleive the fro serious protection, frame mounted skid plates are the only way to ensure your engine does not take any ground strike energy. Using the combination of crash bar front mounting and frame mounted steel rear bracket ensures to provides genuine protection. 

This plate is compatible with OEM & after market centre stands and most aftermarket exhaust systems except Yoshimura.

Installation instructions can be found via a pdf file at the bottom of this page.

Great Product, Great Value,Great Turn Around

I installed my new Ravetech with little or no fuss (minimal mechanical know how required) Not only does it look great when on, for the money you can’t find a better product.

Only thing I would change and I probably will is the front U-bolt clamping mechanism’s to a higher quality stainless steel clamps and nuts.

Otherwise this product is beautifully designing and functional. Oil changes will be a breeze as the drain plug is accessible and access to filter is there as well.

Also it was at my doorstep 2 weeks after ordering.

Haven’t really had the opportunity to experience it off road yet but I’m sure it will stand up to whatever Happens to come our way. Nice job Ravetech!

    Very Positive

    I just came back from a 500 mile trip around the Texas hill country, with a lot of off-road riding. This skid plate took a few good dings but didn't budge and it protected the engine perfectly. I also think it looks really sharp -- better than the shiny cod-piece-like alternative that I was considering. I got great customer service from Ravetech when I snapped a u-bolt putting it on (my fault for overtightening, but it is something to be careful of). They sent me another FOC. Over all, the installation was straightforward and not too time-consuming. I feel like this was an excellent purchase for my 2012 V-Strom 650.

      Sturdy and Beautifully Finished

      After looking around for a suitable bash plate that didn't bolt straight onto engine cases I settled with the Ravetech product.
      Price was good compared with similar bash plates and finish is perfect.
      Haven't fitted yet but instructions look clear and straight forward.
      Very happy with this purchase.

      This is the one!

      After looking at nearly every skid plate available for the V-Strom 650, I settled on the Ravetech. The fit and finish are flawless. The design matches the lines of the bike very nicely. The skid plate will provide excellent protection for the sump, oil filter and oil cooler. I like that the attachment points insure that shock from an impact will not be transmitted into the engine case. I couldn't be happier with the skid plate and even with the overseas shipping, the price is great. Thank you for an outstanding product!
