AltRider Skid Plate BMW F800GS

Adventurous routes are fun for you, but can pose a threat to your engine. Protect it in style from rocks, dirt and kicked up debris by installing the AltRider Skid Plate for the BMW F800 GS.

Made of 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) anodized aluminum, the skid plate offers coverage to the oil filter, heat exchanger and header pipe. It closely conforms to the underside of your bike for protection that doesn’t sacrifice ground clearance.

This design incorporates four flanges into its shape, creating a robust piece that deflects dangerous debris from your bike. It attaches with OEM fasteners that are completely protected, eliminating the possibility of snags. A 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) stainless steel bracket is also included for mounting, and it maintains the BMW rubber mount for ensured motor safety. The bracket extends the life of the rubber mounts by providing an extra cushion on bumpy rides, while also keeping the skid plate from twisting and shearing the mounts.


  • 3/16 inch (4.75) mm anodized aluminum construction
  • Utilizes OEM fasteners and included
  • 3/16 (4.75 mm) stainless steel bracket with stainless steel flat head fasteners
  • Hand TIG welded
  • Compatible with OEM center stand.
  • Can remain installed while changing oil filter
  • Confirmed to fit with Givi crash bars
  • Height: 19 inches
  • Width: 14 inches
  • Depth: 8 inches
  • Weight: 5 lbs

AltRider Skid Plate BMW F800GS 4.8 5 20 20
great coverage Bought this in preparation for a 4 day ride that included a lot of off road single track, unfortunately didn't make the ride this time. HOWEVER, a friend that did go punched a hole in the crankcase of his 1200GS while he had the BMW enduro plate installed. Take a look at youtube or Google it, it's not terribly uncommon seriously off-roading these big bikes. I may have gone a different route had I known this first, there is a plate out there that directs some of the stress to the frame instead of just the case. Anyway, the Altrider plate is made very well and has great coverage, 15 min. install including removal of the stock plastic one I had mangled up a bit. I can't attest to durability or performance, yet. Let's hope it does its job as it's pretty pricy. August 11, 2014
Quality, Overbuilt Protection! The minute you open up the shipping box you can see the level of craftsmanship that went into building this piece of undercarriage armor! Overbuilt, but surprisingly not overweight. Precision welds throughout, accompanied with high quality stainless steel hardware...hard to beat! I chose this manufacture over the OEM part because, it's thicker than stock and also provides more coverage. Would buy again, but doubt I'll ever need to, and would recommend to a friend!

Perfect Skid Plate Imagine a product that installed in minutes, covered all the critical bits and looks awesome - you would have the AltRider skid plate. Couldn't be happier. My first AltRider purchase for my BMW F800GS and it's proven to be a very expensive one as I'm now buying more of their wares. Can't go wrong. April 21, 2014
perfect fit to bmw f800 gs makes perfect fit whit the color of the engine, is lightly and strong, very useful for on/ off roads, cover all engine, i recommend invest i this item like insurance December 10, 2013
A nightmare to install Dosen´t fit in the motorcycle, I need to use heavy machinery to blended to fit… so real nightmare. October 28, 2013
Great value and "Bing Bang" for your buck! Bought this after reading reviews and specs on other bash plates out there. I thought the others were great, but for the price and overall look of this Alt Rider bash plate for my 13 F800GS, I had to go with it. It was super easy to install...took less than 15 mins. This bash plate saved the components on my bike on several occasions I'm sure of. I here heavy rocks being thrown up for miles. "Bing," "Bang" is what I heard and knew it was doing it's job. It overs the oil filter and cooler as well! No issues or complaints with this product! October 14, 2013
Couldn't be happier. Installed the skidplate very easily, have been banging it up now for about three months. I ride off road a lot so it's taken some big hits, still looks fine and no broken parts. If I still had the stock skid plate I would have caused serious damage to the oil filter and headers by now. This skid plate fits around my after market Arrow headers no problem.

This is a "must have" for the f800gs I have taken my f800gs on long 8 hour rallies and 2 day Dual Sport Adventure Weekends (the Berkshire Big Bash in MA, the Seven Mountain in PA). A big bike like the GS can do way more than you think it can, when you push it, but you have to make some changes to stock to protect it. I don;t have alot of money (my ex wife is now loaded) so spent a lot of tim making the decision on what to get. Must-have for offroad: tires (obviously) then bark busters to save the levers on the bars, a set of crash bars to protect the body, and this bash plate. This bash plate is a work of art; every time a stone hit it, it "dings" like a Swiss Cow Bell, and you know you just saved $100 bucks of damage. Off road in the north east is all rock: even fire roads have rocks the front wheel will pick up and "ding" into the engine and exhaust if not protected. Get this bash plate. It is enormous, covers everything, and is bullet proof. Comparing this to the small plastic plate which comes as stock is comparing a crash helmet to a baseball cap. It is easy (and fun) to fit, and it is precision cut and formed. Mine ha seen huge abuse, slamming over rocks, pivoting over logs, through water, the works, and it looks brilliant still.

Probably wouldn't hurt though.
