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 2012-2021 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 adapter 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.

I personally believe that for 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 stainless steel rear bracket ensures to provide genuine protection. 

This plate is compatible with OEM & after market center stands and many aftermarket exhausts.



The Beast

Received skid plate and it is a beast. Appears to be made very strong and durable. Mounts are rock solid and made of thick steel. This plate provides the highest level of protection and looks great. Shipping was surprising quick to US.

Great product, quick shipping

Didn't take long to install, I suggest anyone wanting to fit one to loosen the foot rest bolt before you purchase, Suzuki uses really strong lock-tight, I have a 2017 Mk 3 V Strom and Givi crash bars. I did put a small piece of rubber between bars and skid plate where the Givi bars join. Six days to ship to New Zealand.

Probably the best

Superb service and quality. First, it was shipped very fast. Second, they responded immediately to an issue I had with mounting. Third, I beleive it's better than anything else on the market. Certainly better than the SW Motech I have on my DL1000.


    Fantastic Quality, Service and Price!

    The fit and finish are perfect and the skid plate looks fantastic! Installation was easy and shipping was very quick to BC (12 days). Solid construction and frame mounted installation make this the best deal around!


      Great product at a great price.

      I ordered this dl650 skid plate for a 2007 Dl1000 as I had been informed that some people have fitted it. Although the frames are the same I did encounter a couple of problems. Nothing that a cordless jigsaw with a metal cutting blade couldn’t resolve. The skid plate looks great on my bike and is worth the money.


        Excellent product

        I installed this on my 2017, 650 Vstrom.
        It's a really well made, quality product.
        Easy to install, and looks great.
        Very reasonable price, even with international shipping. Arrived to my door in 2 weeks (BC, Canada).
        Great customer service. If you are looking for a skid plate I cannot recommend this highly enough. Thanks very much

        Awesome skid plate!

        Skid plate installed on a 2014 VStrom 650 with no issues. Everything lined up perfectly. Well built and looks great. 100% recommended. Shipped to Montana, USA in about 1 month.

        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!
