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 G 650 GS.
Made of 1/8 inch anodized aluminum, the skid plate offers full coverage to the sump of the engine. 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.
No matter where you ride, you can keep going without worry by installing the AltRider Skid Plate for the BMW G 650 GS.
Skid plate is compatible with centerstands.
Hand TIG welded not riveted together like other skid plates
Well designed & executed skid plate
This is a stout and well designed skid plate. It provides good forward, rearward and lateral coverage without interfering with side stand or center stand operation. It also hugs the underside of the bike pretty tightly so as not to reduce ground clearance any more than necessary. Large oval oil drain plug access hole which some manufacturers inexplicably don't provide. Installation took about 15 minutes thanks to clearly written instructions & illustrations.

Nice looks and finish, but cut outs may have a down side
The Altrider bas guard for the G650gs is a nicely finished bit of kit...the stock plastic one on the BMW leaves a person with the sense that the Reg/Rec would be in mortal danger, were you to actually use the bike off road. My only reservation about the Altrider unit is that it has a lot of cut outs (weight savings and good looking), but would let quite a lot of gunk thrown by the front wheel through the front - might not be quite as clean a design as the Tourtech offering which is solid. Over all decent and easy to install.

Very nice, it definatelly works.
Very good protection. Every time I go off-road and I hear a rock hitting the skid plate very hard and loud, I'm really happy is there and my bike continues undamaged.

Great quality and design
I've been waiting for months for AltRider to release the skid plate for the BMW G650GS. I could tell by the design of their other skid plates that this one would be sweet. I wasn't let down. Got the black one and think it looks great on the bike. It more or less disappears because of the color, so if you want contrast then go for the clear aluminum. Easy install with three connections. Plate has an access hole for the oil drain plug so that the plate doesn't have to be removed to change oil. Plate has nice welds and feels very sturdy, but not heavy.

Marcelo C:I have it on a regular 2012 G650GS . The regular G650GS and the Sertao are pretty much the same bike with taller suspension and different wheels but everything else is the same, so my guess is that it will fitMay 7, 2014
