Product Details

AltRider Skid Plate Suzuki V-Strom DL1000

Protect the vital engine cases and oil sump without giving up ground clear with the AltRider skid plate for the Suzuki V-Strom DL1000. Constructed of impact resistant 4.75 mm anodized aluminum, this skid plate provides ideal protection for off road conditions. Your exhaust header pipe is also fully protected without sacrificing ground clearance. The oil cooler is well protected while still allowing optimal air flow.

Made with the rider’s convenience in mind, the skid plate can remain installed during oil changes on the center-stand or side-stand since the relief is cut so oil can be drained while the bike is upright or on the side-stand. Included with the skid plate is a redesigned rear bracket that allows for easier installation and more overall strength. The skid plate matches up perfectly to the V-Strom crash bars using hidden fasteners for a clean, finished look. This product is also available in silver.

Take a moment to watch the installation video (click the thumbnail to the right). You’ll see everything that comes with your purchase, the tools you’ll need to complete the installation, and tips and tricks to make the process easier.

  • Seamlessly integrates into V-Strom crash bars
  • Made from 4.75 mm (3/16 inch)  thick lightweight anodized aluminum
  • Protects oil cooler without restricting air flow
  • Full exhaust header protection
  • Change your oil without removing skid plate
  • Finished in your choice of black or silver
  • Hidden fasteners
  • Known to work with the SW Motech center stand

Note:  You may need an extra set of hands during installation to help you hold the bike upright if your V-Strom isn't equipped with a center stand.

Made in the USA

Want the best... this is it!
This skid plate was purchased because my previous skid plate could not take the beating I was giving it. I bent the snot out of it beyond repair.<br><br>Because of the off road riding I do, I need the beefiest plate I could find. This AltRider is it. The mounting system is as it should be! Its somewhat easy to do the initial install. The mounting bracket under the bike is not the simplest to get to. It takes patience and u-joint socket of sorts but it went on without too many curse words.<br><br>The plate is very stout and has already proven to be the right choice for my riding.<br><br>If you need a gnarly skid plate to take a beating in rough off road conditions, this is it.

Muffler in the way
Install sucks a bit due to the location of the kickstand bolts that have to be removed. If you don't have a 19mm open end wrench, go out and buy one before starting the install. It could save you an hour or two in install.<br><br>Also, the back plate bolt goes directly into the muffler so I have not been able to install that bolt/nut yet to make it fully installed. I'll either need to drill an alternate hole of have the bolt chopped of to fit.<br><br>This works perfectly with the AltRider crash bars.

DL1000 AltRider Skid Plate
Great skid plate overall but installation can be a chore. First prying out the right muffler mount to put in the skid plate bracket means loosing all muffler mount bolts. Then aligning the holes to get the muffler mount bolt back in is a chore also. If you do not have a AltRider crash bar you will be drilling hole in your crash bar to mount the front of the skid plate. This skid plate seems larger than it needs to be, not hugging the bottom of the engine. You definitively can change the oil filter out without removing the skid plate as long as you have plenty of rag under the oil filter. Overall a good heavy duty skid plate but easy of installation is another thing and much more room between the engine and the skid plate than other brands.

The 2012 DL1000 instructions need an update
The instructions were a bit generic, but adequate. On my kit the bracket had 3 mounting holes. So there was no play on the initial install. Also, the bolts that hold the skid plate to the bracket were too long on the left side. The bolt actually interferes with the exhaust pipe. I installed 3 washers between the skid plate and the mounting bracket to make it work. While that seems like no big deal... when you spend $300 on a skid plate, everything should fit perfectly.<br>Also, when mounting the front 4 hex head bolts back to the crash bar you can access them with an extension through the lower holes. It's faster and way easier than the install video.<br>Overall its a nicely finished piece, and necessary to help protect the engine.

Disappointed with the lack of attention when the manufacturer was picking the fasteners for my kit. My kit didn't have all the fasteners.
The product is very well made. The engineering was not so good. More attention needs to be given to how physically difficult it is to install the 4 fasteners to the crashbar. This takes an inordinate amount of time to get these 4 fasteners in since you can only rotate the fastener in some locations maybe a tenth of a turn. The other gripe is that bag of fasteners for my assembly had 4 of the largest fasteners (only two needed) and only two of the 6mm fasteners (should be 4) for attaching the skidpan to the crashbar. Had to run to the hardware store to buy two fasteners. This needs to be "stupid proofed" at the factory. A full sized reference display for the person picking the fasteners that he/she can compare to if confused might be helpful. Nicely made, just need to focus on making the assembly less difficult and a way to help the people bagging the parts plus better QA verifying the correct components are bagged,
