AltRider Skid Plate for 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 (4.75mm) 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.

Specifications:

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

Skid Plate
This was a super installation, and based on the the thickness of skid plate you would be hard pressed to damage the bike with this installed. Very solid product. Can't wait to bash some rocks.

Very well made plate!!
I have had several of the German made skid plates. Alt-Rider has made this one on par, if not better, than the German products. The skid plate looks great, is functional, and is very high quality. One of the things I was concerned about was fit and installation problems. Do not be concerned about this!! The skid plate took about 10 minutes to install. It fits perfectly with no clearance problems. I highly recommend this product.

Solid skid plate
I bought this as a last-minute decision before riding part of the Washington BDR. During the ride, I heard constant "klangs" from rocks being thrown up into it - everything from pebbles to baby heads - it took all of them without denting or any noticeable scratches. Because the Alt-Rider plate also provides coverage for the regulator and oil filter, I could only imagine what kind of mess I would have been in if I had just kept the stock plate. You just can't beat these in terms of protection. Easy install, excellent build quality, very happy.

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!

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.

Gravel Grinder
With over 8000 miles of gravel roads and just 6000 paved here in Vermont it was a no brainer that getting the under belly of my 2014 F800GS protected was job # 1. Altrider makes top notch products and I have just about everything they make for my bike. Only down side to this unit is that you need to uninstall for oil changes but that will be the case with most good skid plates.

Good Fit, Good Looks
Easy to install and good fitment. This plate is built plenty strong to protect the header and oil pan. The black one doesn't look out of place on the bike either. This skid plate does prevent use of a long automotive type oil filter though. There is no hole to acces the oil drain plug so you either have to remove the plate (which is easy) or drill a hole to stick the alan bit through (easier).

Great piece
Very very nice. Solid well built piece, the finish on this thing is amazing considering its meant to be smacked around. Its not cheap, but when you consider what its protecting, its more than worth the price and piece of mind. Would highly recommend for your F800GS, or any other bike for that matter. Looks great and would buy again if i had to. Definitely read the instructions and keep everything loose until all of the bolts are on otherwise you'll be fighting it. Bottom line if your looking for a solid, high quality, protective skid plate for your bike, get this!

The oil filter is a weak point on the BMW GS. This skid plate offers great protection and was super simple to install. Also made here in the USA...

Did some extensive researching and talking to others and this is the skid plate that got the best overall reviews. The stock plate is okay but for added protection, I liked this one.

Will this skid plate fit the new 2014 F800GS Adventure?
Brian J on Sep 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I put one on my 2012 but under This product Fits on REV Webb site says 2008-2013. You better call and ask about 2014 ADV!
I didn't see any mention of using locktite...would it be advisable to use some blue on any of the bolts?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2012
BEST ANSWER: While AltRider does not call for the use of Loctite, using Blue/Medium Loctite will not hurt and ensure everything stays mounted.
Will this skid plate fit with the OEM engine protection bars?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a 2013 F800gs ...got the black skid plate..Had to trim a little along the shifter and break area ...Did this on the bandsaw..and a little handwork with a nice new mill file,then a little black paintpen or marker on the shinny new area!!!! I looked at a lot of skid plates ..This one looked to be #1 I love it, don't worry about $ or cutting on it!!! You will worry about$$$ when your case is BUSTED !!!!!! It plays a nice Tune when the gravel is bouncing off it!!!! JOE
When I watched the video, it says I will need vibration isolation mounts in order to install this on my F650GS. Where can I buy them?
A shopper on May 30, 2012
BEST ANSWER: There is a specific part number for this skid plate that includes the OEM rubber vibration isolation mounts for installation on a F650GS.
