AltRider Skid Plate Husqvarna TR650 Terra / Strada
Best protection available for the bike.
With so few after market accessories available for this bike it's pretty surprising to learn that there are about 8 different skid plates out there for this bike. I'd spent hours online reading about them all and must say that for the aggressive riding that I do this is hands down the best option. Much more coverage and much more durable than the factory Husky skid plate that was an option.

Great product, well made
searched and searched for a good skid plate for a good price. Alt rider's skid plate is the best when it comes to protection and price, plus it looks good.

Easy Install Good Protection
Installation of this piece was extremely easy and it seems to offer good protection. The only downside is that it feels sharp on the edges (if i were to wreck without wearing proper boots i am pretty sure my ankles would be shaven off)

Great skid plate!
As a newcomer to the dual sport/adventure bike genre (Harley rider for 30 years), I wanted gear to protect me & my ride in the case of the inevitable contact with the ground!
The Terra comes very bare bones, so protecting vital components was first on my list. I liked the look of the Alt Rider plate, was not disappointed when I installed.
Installation was a breeze, everything fit great! Now I get to go out & see if it is durable!

Easy to install and protects engine as I needed it to. I also like the fact that now I can put the bike on a bike stand and is sit level. I also like the black finish, looks good.

You won't be disappointed.
2013 Husqvarna TR650 Terra
Of the skid plates available for this bike AltRider is the most expensive. After reviewing all solutions I felt it provided the best overall design & protection and therefore the was worth the price. I have not been disappointed in my decision.
- simple 2 bolt Installation (< 30 min)
- no exposed hardware
- well crafted, rigid design, welding
- protects critical areas
- front side is higher than most protecting hoses
- black powder coat is strong (I tested on downhill ledge)
- opening for oil drain plug
- does not hinder brake & shift lever operation

The Best Design, The Highest Price
When I bought my Husqvarna TR650 I quickly figured out that a skid plate was a must. There were no less than 7 options out there from $100 bash plates that would certainly do the basic job, but with marginal attachment systems and have to be removed for oil changes.
It took some time for AltRider to deliver on their design, but when it did come it was clearly the best design out there--and the most expensive. The attachment system is superior, coverage is exactly the right amount in the front and the sides, and the touch of an oblong oil drain hole anticipates draining oil with your motorcycle leaned over on the kick stand. Nice touch.
Anodizing is top notch and the aesthetics match the Husqvarna in styling.
It was worth the wait.
