Product Details

SW-MOTECH Skid Plate Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 

Whether you are getting stuck in the mud or running in a desert rally, the SW-MOTECH Skid Plate is a great piece of protection for your motorcycle’s fragile underbelly.

These skid plates are laser cut from a highly-durable aluminum alloy - 4.0mm thick aluminum is used for the base plate and 2.5mm thick aluminum is used for the side plates. The base plate is meant to take any direct impact and the side plates wrap around the engine block to provide both bottom and side protection. Unlike other skid plates which are welded together at the folds, these skid plates are held together by the same punch-rivet technology found on most modern german cars.

SW-MOTECH works closely with multiple motorcycle manufacturers on designing many OEM accessories. The information gathered from this is directly carried over into the design of SW-MOTECH products. This means SW-MOTECH products fit as good or even better than stock equipment.

Includes a cut-out for oil drain bolt to allow for easy oil changes.

A must have for off road riding
If truth be told I bought this plate for the look, price, and for the good reviews I have seen all over the Internet. Anyone who has even looked that the 2014+ V Strom 1000 and knows what's what can see that oil filter just sitting there between the front tire and the engine just begging to be busted up. Great for oil changes not so much when your Taking the bike up a rocky mountain trail 15 miles from help and no cell service. Now when I said I bought it for its look I mean it "looked" like it would offer great protection to that area of the bike. And I can tell you it absolutely does. I have a few nice marks in the plate from my most recent ride that has proven to me that it is worth the money and time to install, which if you install a center stand be read to pull the right spring.

Install wasn't hard just trying to make sure I did it right the first time and not wanting to strip out the motor casing screw holes. Took me about 2 hours to mount it completely and make sure it was solid.

Overall a great piece of protection to add to the bike, and it can take more than a few hits and be just fine. If you want a skid plate I'd say get this one and you'll be happy you did.

Great coverage and looks
I already have installed the SWMotech crash bars and center stand. So, when I purchased the skid plate, this was a no brainer. Install was a little over an hour while I was sipping my coffee. The hardest part was getting up and down from the garage floor to move to the other side. There is good access to the oil drain plug and filter so there should be no need to remove the plate for an oil change.
It comes with some extra spacers and such for use, depending what crash bars you have. So, you will have a couple extra bits left over.

Well Designed Skid Plate
The SW-Motech skid plate for my 2014 V-Strom 1000 appears very well designed to both protect and look like it belongs on the motorcycle.
If you will take the time to sort out the mounting hardware and follow the instructions, it's not bad but takes a few minutes.

Easy Install
Plate went on easily, seems fairly sturdy. I wouldn't want to put all the weight of the bike on it by high centering it, but it's good protection for the oil filter and exhaust.

Great bag.
I haven't had the chance to test it in a downpour, but I suspect that it will work fine. The construction is very solid and the attachments are good for securing to the bike. I use extra straps over the top for good measure. The hi-viz is nice, but I met a guy on his return trip to Alaska and the hi-viz on his bag had faded compared to mine. I've had mine out in the elements on several trips already and haven't had any noticeable fading, but now know what to expect. Overall, happy with the purchase.

I selected this skid plate for the reason it actually provides some protection to the engine case.

Does this plate go with givi crash bars?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes...have both
The site says this won't fit a 2015 DL1000. But I can't see why it wouldn't. Any advice?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think it would....fit 2014 perfect
will this fit 2015 dl1000 adventure's crash bars?
Kelly C on Jul 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Its fits my 2014's OEM crash bars. I am 95% sure the 2015 has the same bars, so it should.
does it have to be removed to change the oil?
David S on Mar 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. There's a cutout in the skid-plate for the oil drain plug. There's also a slot for oil to drain through below the oil filter mounting bracket.
Will this fit with the oem center stand?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. No problem. Fits perfect.
Do i need a center stand to install the plate?
ilan t on May 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Can be done without a center stand...won't be easy, but it's do-able. I already had a center stand on my VStrom and made the job a whole lot easier...took about an hour to install.
Does this skid plate work with the OEM center stand? Thanks.
Michael W on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have this skid plate mounted with the OEM center stand. In the install instructions for the skid plate, there is a little insert picture showing where two bushings are eliminated if you are using using the OEM center stand. Be sure to find that in the instructions and you won't have any problem.
