Product Details

AltRider Skid Plate for BMW R1200GS Water Cooled

With 125 horsepower, the new BMW water cooled boxer motor is an impressive machine. All that power flying down the trail can produce some tough hits to the bottom of a 500 pound motorcycle, requiring much heftier protection than the thin stock plate.

The AltRider skid plate was completely redesigned for the 2013 model. To maintain greater ground clearance, a flat plate of 3/16” (4.76mm) anodized aluminum is utilized, with no bolts on the bottom side to snag. This revolutionary mounting system allows the move from the AltRider original corrugated design, saving over half an inch of ground clearance. The plate was designed to be extremely narrow at the bottom to maintain the great cornering ability of the R1200GS. It is a one piece unit that provides tire to tire protection. From the leading front corner of the headers to just before the rear tire, the entire bottom side of the motor is shielded from impact. Even the catalytic converter is safeguarded. There are no gaps in protection or plastic pieces to break and no parts to continually repurchase--just one smooth 3/16” (4.76mm) plate that provides complete coverage. In an effort to maintain simplicity, AltRider designed the skid plate so it doesn’t require removal to change the oil on the bike.

The AltRider Skid Plate is the only design on the market that doesn’t rely on the engine as a mounting point. The inherent weakness of all other current designs is that they use the motor itself as an anchor point. No matter the number or complexity of brackets, they still transfer impact directly to the motor. The front of the AltRider plate gets its brute strength from 3/16” (4.76 mm) stainless steel brackets that mount directly to the frame. The brackets are secured with the two sturdy M12 torx frame bolts, preventing the flange from pivoting on impact. Another key innovation of the AltRider design are the rear mounting points. Other plates attach to the frame cross member below the swing arm using thin or complicated brackets. These long brackets have more leverage, allowing impacts to create shearing or bending forces that break the mount. The AltRider skid plate is held in place with two custom machined fasteners that replace the center stand pins, lowering the mounting point by a notable 4” which dramatically reduces leverage. This mounting system is an industry first that provides an extremely clean look, while remaining very powerful and simple to install.

The one piece skid plate is simple to install, and all stainless steel hardware is provided.

The AltRider Skid Plate is designed to link the skid plate to the AltRider BMW R1200GS Crash Bars (sold separately), distributing impact evenly throughout structure. The skid plate may be used without the AltRider Crash Bars by ordering the Without Crash Bars option.

Features:

  • 3/16” (4.76mm) hand TIG welded anodized aluminum
  • Protects entire bottom side of the liquid cooled motor including headers and catalytic converter
  • Oil change does not require removal of skid plate
  • One piece unit that provides tire to tire protection

Armor plating baby!!!
Installed this along with the Alt Rider lower crashbars on my '15 GS and it looks like it can withstand a bomb!! Have not ridden on trails to really test it yet but have no doubt that this thing will protect my engines underside. Install was a bit of a pain trying to get the 2 rear bolts in and getting the wrench and bit diver on the fastener to tighten proved a challenge as well. Good thing is you don't have to remove it to do and oil change cause that would of been a deal breaker. Other wise great product.
