Don't risk catastrophic damage to your R1200. We have also seen what happens
when the stock skid plate comes in contact with too many large, unmovable trail
hazards. In the worst case
(since the stock plate is mounted to the engine oil pan) the mounting bolts
punch a hole in the engine causing oil loss ... and an unhappy rider.
In less severe cases, the rubber mounts holding the skid plate to the bottom
of the engine soon separate from each other and you have a skid plate
left on the trail somewhere, or maybe caught in time to zip-tie it
in place until you get to the next BMW dealer.
Our Happy Trails skid plate solves these problems with our custom fit, full length 3/16” skid plate. It is
not mounted to the engine oil pan and does not use failure prone rubber
based mounting spacers. We mount directly to the frame rails at the rear and
to the most substantial engine mount available at the front of the plate. Our unique bracket design absorbs the energy from larger hits
before transferring it to the engine case.
Unique mounting brackets help prevent engine
case damage and potential “ride-ending” oil loss
Extended protection for the front, sides, and
back of the engine and exhaust system
Adventure proven 3/16” aluminum plate is used
throughout for strength and long term durability
