AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Skid Plate

Rocks and debris are no match for the AltRider Skid Plate for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200. Constructed of 3.175 mm powder coated aluminum, it reaches high on the left hand side to protect the stator, and provides extensive coverage of the headers on the right. The skid plate features hand TIG welds and stainless hardware, and is manufactured in the United States.

The AltRider skid plate is the solution for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200, no matter what adventure you take.


  • 3.175 mm anodized aluminum
  • Hand TIG welds
  • Stainless hardware
  • Height: 12 inches
  • Width: 18 inches
  • Depth: 24 inches
  • Weight: 8 lbs

Note: The AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere skid plate will not work with OEM Yamaha crash bars because of interference with crossbar on crash bars. Skid plate will mount up but cross bar will have to be removed.

Note: Skid plate must be removed to change oil filter. If using aftermarket oil filter, it must be the same 2" length as OEM to avoid interference. Oil, alone, can be changed with skid plate installed.

AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Skid Plate 4.6 5 15 15
I'm no mechanic, but had little trouble installing the skid plate. The instructions were easy to follow and the installation went very smoothly. The only difficulty I had was tightening the front bolt on the kickstand side. It's very difficult getting a wrench on the nut next to the oil filter, but got it done. The skidplate fit and finish are perfect and it should perform as needed and advertised. April 7, 2014
High quality product High quality product with easy to understand install instructions. Looks great on the Super Tenere and works as advertised. Very happy with product. February 26, 2014
It takes a beating daily! I use my Tenere as my commuter bike and I get to take 6-8 miles of offroad. It's a lot like your video "the commute" The loose river rock I ride thru really puts the skid plate to the test! Altrider makes a great product! August 8, 2013
Great product, free shipping. I love the Altrider skid plate. It protects the oil filter and other areas of the bike. Plus, Revzilla offers free shipping on this product and with your purchase, you earn Revzilla bucks. January 28, 2013
Great product. Install was not too bad. Fortunately I had some thread lock at home or I would have been screwed on the install, as I did it late at night and all the stores were closed. Plate looks good on the ride. I am very satisfied. December 31, 2012
Sturdy for the occasional hit This skid plate should suffice for the terrain the Super Tenere was made for. It probably won't withstand big rock hits with the full weight of the Tenere on it. My only issue is with no easy way to change the oil filter without removing the plate. If doing just an oil change the plate can remain. This only adds another 10 minutes to an oil/filter job.

one of the best skid plates available for the XT1200Z This is a skid plate on an expensive adventure touring bike, so I really don't want to test it if you know what I mean. Skid plates are insurance, you want to have it there just in case. This product is typical Altrider fare, which is to say it is top quality. The instructions are very thorough and accurate enough that installation was followed with no mis-steps. Hint - an angled driver will ease holding the inboard fasteners. The product is well designed: good coverage (important for a skid plate), thoughtful bracketry, the fitment was excellent, good powder coat finish (black version), and it looks good too (style is subjective, but let's face it, some skid plates are ugly without being more functional.) I have several Altrider products on this bike. They're not cheap, but they are about as good as you can get and made in the USA too! October 29, 2012
That'll do Seems that there is no perfect skid plate. This plate is no exception. Installation is a little worse than normal. The included instructions will lead you down the wrong path with wrong sizes of bolts and black and white pictures . Search online for the latest instructions from AltRider or hints from the Super Tenere forums. I think you have to put it on twice before you get it on with no issue. I haven't had my skid plate sing to me like some ST owners have had, but an easy fix has been found for that. I also had some initial issues with my shipment from Revzilla. I only mention that to give a shout out to their customer service department. Rock stars. After all that, I've dropped the plate twice for oil changes, it adds an extra 12 minutes round trip. I guess it could be prettier, but I have a lot of faith this plate will survive the forest service roads and two track I have and will explore. Ping-ping-ping is already a pleasant sound I have gotten used to from debris hitting the bottom of this plate. :-) I'm a huge fan of AltRider. The instructions were a little disappointing, but the product is solid. There are some better options our there for beauty or armor, but this is the best compromise I am aware of. October 2, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Michael A: Very well made and fits my bike perfectly. You need some patience to fit the nuts on the inside of the skid plate. Looks great on the bike and should provide great protection for the bike. Apr 2, 2014
Robert D: Recommendation from fellow riders. Jan 12, 2014
Mike S: Good reviews from users on ADCRider forum Jan 8, 2014
Sean M: Prior to this purchase I had a cheap aluminum skid plate. While doing a little dirt riding I hit a small branch that pushed a mounting bolt from the skid plate into my sump pan and put a hole in it. Altrider is what I should have gone with in the first place instead of taking the cheap route. Lesson learned. Oct 3, 2013
