AltRider Triumph Tiger 800XC Skid Plate

Where you see riding and adventure, your engine sees rocks, ruts, and danger. Make your next ride fun by keeping it safe for the vulnerable parts of your bike – install the AltRider Skid Plate for the Triumph Tiger 800 XC.

Made of 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) thick anodized aluminum, it offers substantial coverage to your headers and oil filter. AltRider worked hard to incorporate their corrugated plate design, adding strength where you need it most  while simultaneously protecting the fasteners and maintaining light weight. The skid plate mounts using OEM vibration isolation mounts to help absorb impact, as well as the stock bracket to keep the plate from twisting and shearing the vibration isolation mounts unnecessarily.  

Wherever you ride, be prepared by installing the AltRider Skid Plate for the Triumph Tiger 800 XC.


  • Compatible with OEM center stand
  • Oil plug can be accessed with skid plate installed. Skid plate needs to be removed to change the oil filter


  • Made of 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) thick anodized aluminum
  • Height: 21 inches
  • Width: 14 inches
  • Depth: 8 inches
  • Weight: 4 lbs

Great product holds up well, doesn't just look pretty Haven't had this long but have already put it to the test and it does very well. I like the welded construction vs. the rivets of many other plates. A quick note on install. It is was not super easy but not extremely difficult either. It's made to go on a stock bike so you may need to do a bit more tear down than the instructions say (like I did due to engine bars I had already on plus the fog lights' harness, blech).

Excellent product. A little costly but you get what you pay for. Easy to install. Nice hardware. Finish looks great. August 12, 2013
Perfect weight & fit I definitely wanted something lightweight as I recently helped a friend install a steel skid plate. This skid plate is very well built and lightweight. Looks good on the bike as well. Having only installed it a few days ago I have not "tested" it yet, but I look forward to it. Regarding installation, an extra pair of hands helps. The instructions are very clear, however it is a bit difficult to align all the screws, hold the plate, and tighten one at a time. Other than that installation took about 30 minutes. Definitely recommended. July 1, 2013
Pricey, but Awesome This is a great product. I was hesitant to pay more for a skid plate than I did for my crash bars, but ultimately I feel this piece is very solid. Great finish, installs in minutes, and it gives you the piece of mind you need to hit the dirt. Very well made and protective. June 3, 2013
Solid choice to protect your belly This is up there with the rest of the AltRider products that I have seen. No rivets or crews holding it together, just a nice, welded item, with no fitment issues. Mine has taken a good amount of rocks and debris, with only minor marks which are to be expected, while protecting the vitals completely. March 11, 2013
Easy install,looks great Very well made product,easy to install.This product doesn't provide any protection for the oil filter though. October 12, 2012

Yohan B: Yes to both of your questions! I have the OEM crash bars and Center stand and the plate fit without a problem!

Did an oil change last week and removing the plate and all took me 25 minutes!

Scott T: Thanks Yohan B for the quick response. Do you have a 2013 Tiger 800 XC as well? Apr 17, 2014
John B: Just did something similar to mine last weekend. Factory center stand is not in the way when installing the skid plate. I can't confirm the crash guards, I put the ALtrider guards on mine and really like them. Bit of a pain as the mount to the frame, but I think they provide better protection. Just my .02.

The Altrider skid plate is a beast. Huge improvement over the OEM plastic one. My Triumph is also a 13.

John T: I ordered and installed the skid plate prior to installing the Alt Rider crash bars. I was easily able to install those crash bars after the skid plate was on. I don't know if the OEM crash bars will work with that combination or not.

I am sorry I wasn't able to offer more help.

Miles K: I can't speak to the OEM crash bars, but I have the OEM center stand installed with the AltRider skid plate and it works like a dream. I'd imagine there wouldn't be any issues with the lower bars either. Apr 17, 2014
