New skid plate! The upgrade includes the Outback Motortek "signature" embossed ribs on the bottom! Skid plates must be mounted to the Outback Motortek Crash bars, as a System. It will not mount separately.
The 2016 Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L is the most anticipated bike on the adventure/dual-sport motorcycle market. Outback Motortek couldn't miss out on the chance to have this amazing motorcycle outfitted with protective and off-road accessories. Compatible with DCT models, the skid plate was designed to truly tackle hardcore terrains and adventure. It is also the ONLY Africa Twin CRF1000L skid plate on the market that attaches to three mounting points!
Two of these are factory mounts, and the third mounting point being the Outback Motortek crash bars. You will not find anything like this anywhere else. Outback Motortek takes this bike seriously, just as Honda advertises it: the True Adventurer. Period. Only compatible with Outback Motortek Honda Africa Twin crash bars.
Bash Plate Features:
- Protects crucial areas of the engine – oil pan, engine case, oil cooler, oil filter and exhaust header! That’s a long list of very expensive parts to expose to any sort of damage that will reduce your Africa Twins value in no time.
- Uniquely designed vent system – Not only unique but very-well thought out. No unnecessary holes were designed on this bash plate. As a result, your engine will less likely to overheat when mud and all sorts of debris from off-roading fly at the engine and get stuck between the skid plate and the engine/exhaust header.
- True off-road and adventure shape – What does that even mean?? It means we have experience in building top-notch bash plates. We avoid designing skid plates that are shaped like boxes, have sharp edges and corners and will guaranteed to restrict your rides off road. We design and build skid plates that you will only benefit from while riding on rough terrain.
- The only known design with ridges on the bottom of the skid plate – Ridges help the skid plate glide over hard objects with the least resistance. Most importantly though, these embossed ridges will REINFORCE the bottom of this bash plate without adding unnecessary weight.
- 4mm thick laser cut aluminum – Nothing is ever an overkill on an adventure bike, hence we choose to build our bash plates from this ridiculously tough and thick, yet lightweight material.
- Tough mounting hardware – No cutting corners here (either)! Precision laser cut pieces for perfect fitment using 5mm thick metal mounts. These parts absorb a lot of impacts from riding through (off-road) hell, rather than your bikes chassis or engine that are worth thousands of dollars.
- Stainless Steel Hardware – These quality bolts and nuts will always and forever look nice and shiny. Unless your bike is covered in mud and dust…
- Sandblasted to achieve the best possible adhesion of the coatings – it’s an extremely vital part of our manufacturing process. Sandblasted surfaces will withstand most surface scratches and give you a longer-lasting product.
- Powder coated – combined with sandblasting it’s a killer combination to protect your product’s surface. No frills and tough just like your ADV/Dual Sport bike!
