Great Skid Plate
Looks cool. Beefy and up to the job. A bit hard to install as rubber bumpers have to be compressed for hole fitment. But rubber bumpers important to eliminate vibration. Be careful as I dumped my bike trying to get holes to line up by pushing underside of plate for hole alignment (my fault) with broken fairing. Dohhhhh! Well built and made with precision. Costly compared to other plates.

AMAZING SKID PLATE
I recently purchased the Altrider skid plate for my 2014 KLR650 to replace the cheap useless factory plate. Prior to this purchase i installed the Givi crash bars of which created a tremendous amount of vibration through out the bike at around 45 MPH in conjunction of the existing vibration of the primal motorcycles single cylinder 651cc engine. Once installed the Altrider skid plate with all 8 dampners like magic even the majority of the pre existing vibration prior to installation of the engine guards was gone. I am extremely stunned by this since some KLR owners in the past result into upgraded piston kits to achieve a smoother ride and all i did was install a skid plate. Over all coverage is great it protects the water pump, valve cover, and more then 75% of the oil sump and the hole in the bottom for oil change purposes works flawlessly in the plates functionabilty. great finish and solid yet light weight. I found that for anything that covered more then this plate is in the upward 280-300 dollar range and appeared less attractive to the eye and functionabilty all around on the bike seems questionable. I am really impressed with the out come of this purchase and will highly suggest this to any other KLR enthusiast.
