Nice look Givi give's you the protection without the cost. great look on the bike April 21, 2015
Quality product Happy with product and serves my purpose exactly. I plan on mostly road riding, pavement and stone, with light off roading. If I planned to scrap rocks and logs on a more regular basis I would get a better skid plate. Meaning one that mounts to the frame and engine guards. January 26, 2015
Protective and bulking looking Added this to my 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 650. It's protective but a little bulking looking. Not bad, just a little biggish. It does add some noise or echo, but I added a layer of truck bed liner spray and all is well. November 3, 2014
Worth the money PRO 1. Not easy but much easier than others I have tried to put on. 2. Good price 3.Looks good and does the job. CON 1. throws engine heat straight to your legs. Great in winter, not so good in the summer. September 4, 2014
Good protection for an aluminum plate. I ride a lot of paved and gravel roads and this plate works good for this application. It will protect the oil filter from small rocks and sticks that kick up off the front tire. Not as heavy duty as a steel plate but works good for the average back country rider. August 11, 2014
Looks great and does the job. For an aluminum skid plate it will do a good job of protecting your oil filter and other parts from minor road and off road hazards. Obviously it is not as good as steel or such, but looks great and was very easy to install. Great look and great price. April 28, 2014
Fits well, but a bit flimsy Fits great on the bike and will offer decent protection for minor bashing or flying stones. My dirt riding is mostly on fire roads, and this will work well for my purposes. If I did much trail riding, I would have likely spent the extra $ on a heavier skid plate, but I have another motorcycle for that. It is the cheapest option that does what I need it to.

Fit and Looks are Great The skid plate was pretty easy to install, however I did have to take a dent out of it that probably was a result of transport damage. If I could do it over again, I would probably order a steel skid plate as opposed to an aluminum one. I just can't imagine what the plate will look like after I hit something substantial. I should have sacrificed the weight for the durability. My bad. It is what they advertized though. I did expect it to be a welded one piece plate and not a riveted plate. If you can put up with it being aluminum, it's a nice product. September 16, 2013

Grant A: Yes, the 2012 through 2013 models years are the same, and the skid plate attaches directly with the supplied hardware. Nothing extra required. Installation is easy, but getting to some of the nuts in order to tighten can get a bit fiddly at times, especially if you have larger hands and fingers. One piece of advice: there are four rubber washers/pads that must be inserted between the inside of the skid plate and the mount holes (which are on the engine case). Very little room to get your hand in there to line them up with the bolts. I found that using some double sided tape to secure them to the inside of the skid plate directly lined up over over the skid plate holes, and then poking a hole in the tape with an awl made lining them up for istallation much easier. Keeps them secure when your hands can't.

Plate must be removed for oil changes. Pain in the neck, but no more difficult than installation.

Additional note: if your're looking for a skid plate for serious off-road thumping as opposed to just general protection for the pipes and oil filter you may want to consider something more rugged. The Givi is very nice and definitely does the job for road and light off-road, but it does mount directly to the engine, so if you're going to really pound the underside you should go with something that attaches to the frame and crash bars/engine guard.

Craig M: No additional brackets or modifications are needed. Yes it does need to be removed to do an oil change which takes about 3 minutes. Other skid plates with a oil plug access hole drilled in them would probably need to be removed and cleaned anyway as I can't imagine every drop of oil would make it out without some ending up on the inside of the skid plate.
