These skid plates are compatiable with the New style SWMotech Engine guards that attach to the lower frame tube and the Old Style SWMotech Engine guards that attach to the foot pegs.

A quality skid plate is a must-have item for serious off road riding. Yet the KLR650 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.

Based on customer feedback, we have added more room between the engine and sides of the skid plate in addition to more adjustability to the fitment slots. These features make it easier to install and align on any model KLR. We have also increased the height of the sides to better protect the critical water pump housing and left case cover in the event of a slow speed tip over.

The lower front air vents double as a bottle opener -- Hey, you asked for it, we did it!

The plate is hand-bent, fitted, and welded at our factory in Boise, Idaho before applying an ultra-stylish, durable Silver-Vein or Black color powder coat finish that you really have to see to appreciate.


  • Custom fitted for the KLR using adventure proven 1/8" 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

  • Bottle opener built in -- never forget that Beverage Wrench again!

  • Compatible with our centerstand and highway pegs

Tim Says: "Happy Trails started manufacturing skid plates for the KLR in 1991, inspired by fellow adventure rider Damon Powell of Team Dual Dogs. In fact, some of those original skid plates can still be found on a few early model KLRs. Our latest skid plate incorporates 20 years of customer feedback and experience to create what we think will be another industry leading design."
