Designed for the CRF1000L Africa Twin to give critical protection for all key components at front, sides, and bottom of the motor.

Happy Trails Products

A quality skid plate is a must-have item for serious off road riding. Yet the CRF1000L stock plastic skid plate does not protect the engine from large debris and direct contact with rocks and logs, part of every back country adventure. Our Happy Trails skid plate improves upon a basic proven skid plate design that we have been offering for over a decade.

The plate is hand-bent, fitted, and welded at our factory in Boise, Idaho.


  • Custom fitted for the CRF1000L Africa Twin using adventure proven 3/16" aluminum

  • Protects the vulnerable water pump housing and engine side cases

  • Five point steel clamp frame mounting for secure attachment

  • Drain plug opening for quick and easy oil changes, while providing protection from rocks and other drain plug shearing debris

  • Compatible with OEM centerstand and highway pegs

Colors: Black Hammertone or Bare Aluminum (bottom cross bracket is black on Bare Aluminum option)

Dimensions: 16" W x 7" H x 14" L
Weight: 6.2 lbs w/ hardware

All Happy Trails products are crafted in Idaho
