SW Motech Aluminum Engine Guard Skid Plate For Suzuki DL650 V-Strom (2012 - 2016), V-Strom 650 (2017 - 2019) & V-Strom 650XT (2015 - 2019)
The SW-MOTECH skid plate can be used with:
Front mounting bracket connects directly to the motorcycle without the need to connect to a crash bar. Recessed rear mounting bracket prevents damage to screw heads when sliding over rocks. Front and rear connection points are rubber mounted to reduce vibration, which lowers noise and the possibility of fracturing the skid plate. The shock absorbing mounting points can be inexpensively replaced if damaged.
The skid plate has a pre-drilled hole in the bottom so that the oil drain plug bolt can be accessed without removing the skid plate. This allows the oil to be changed without removing the skid plate.
To change the oil filter, the skid plate must be removed. This can be achieved by removing four bolts from the bottom of the skid plate and four additional bolts from the front end of the skid plate. The four skid plate mounting brackets can remain attached to the motorcycle. The process of removing and reattaching the skid plate from these points should add no more than 10 minutes to an oil filter change.
Fitment Note: This skid plate was designed to work with the stock exhaust system. We cannot guarantee fitment or compatibility with any other aftermarket accessories.
