A skid plate is a must for the serious woods or cross country rider. It will protect your bike from expensive frame and engine case damage.
Note: For F650GS / F700GS models you must purchase F800 rubber skid plate mounts from BMW (Part #71607704773 - Mounting Parts Set) or the rubber mount kit below (SPL279-RM). Here is a picture of the kit. The skid plate fits the F800 without modification or addition of the kit.
Torx 40 bit/driver required for skid plate installation.
It is not in stock. I get them the next day. You can come into to the store.
There are no fitment issues with the side stand or center stand.
There is a separate mount kit that is required with the F700GS bikes it is in the drop down menu on the listed skid plate as an option. This will be required to mount your skid plate to your bike. To the best of our knowledge nothing has changed on the 2015 F700GS bikes from the previous years as far as mount points, so this should work just fine on your bike.
