AltRider Skid Plate BMW R1200GS

Kicked-up debris can endanger your BMW engine, but the AltRider skid plate for the R 1200 GS has it covered.

Made of sturdy 4.75 mm anodized aluminum, the AltRider skid plate features a corrugated design that multiplies its strength.  The 1 3/8 inch radii flanges mirror the profile of the headers, which creates a unique shape that tightly conforms to the underside of the bike.

Close turns, brush, and other off road dangers won’t pose a threat to your vulnerable header pipes, because this product gives them substantial coverage. And when the front wheel spits back rocks and dirt, the AltRider skid plate will protect your header’s cross pipe.


  • Easy installation
  • 4.75 mm (3/16 inch) anodized aluminum
  • Mounts using OEM fasteners with supplied bolt/spacer
  • Length: 18 inches
  • Height: 3.3 inches
  • Width: 14 inches

Lots of protection! It adds a lot of protection for the crosspipe and headers. Mine does have a funny ring when I ride. I haven't tried to dampen it yet but it is exciting a resonance. Great protection for my 1200 GS. September 1, 2014
Great Product Made in the US is big for me. This is well made and covers a bigger area then stock. Looks great also. May 28, 2014
A must have for off road Looks great and build quality is excellent, it has taken the full 500+ lbs of the bike at speed multiple times and still shows no sign of abuse, love it November 4, 2013
The fit and quality are second to none! It took longer to pull tools out than it did to install onto the MY R1200GSA (2011).looks great and works very well. May 28, 2012
High end upgrade Easy install Nice finish 100x better than stock Pricey April 9, 2012
Great It's a lot bigger than the OEM part. I haven't been able to take it out and beat it up yet, but I feel a lot more confident it will protect my R12GS Adv. It's a solid well built piece, and installation is simple and exact. No need to try to make it fit as with some aftermarket parts, it's just bolts right on. April 2, 2012
HEAVY DUTY WOW, this is true off road protection! You can see in the pictures I'll upload that the guage and coverage is much better then the stock plate from BMW. I believe that BMW should use this plate by AltRider on every GS Adventure they sell. February 22, 2012

James M: Good protection. More durable than original equipment; Price May 26, 2015
E R: Altrider parts are of the very best quality and fit.

The skid plate is super strong and very well designed to fit the R1200GS and its exhaust pipes.

Philip N: damaged the stock skid plate at the GS Trophy qualifying - upgrading to better protection. I chose this over Touratech and SW Motech because it offers an alternate forward mounting. Sep 28, 2013
A shopper asked: Does anybody know if this can be fitted on a 2013 R1200R? It seems the screw holes for a skid plate on the R are the same or at least similar in position as for the GS. thank you. Aug 2, 2014
