The new V-Strom 1000 is a very capable adventure mount, but one look at the front of the engine and you can see why a quality skid plate is such an important addition. Right out there in the open just waiting to be dented or punctured by a mischievous rock or branch are the oil filter, exhaust and starter with the engine cases not far behind.

Our Happy Trails Products skid plate is designed specifically to fit the new V-Strom 1000. We use adventure proven 3/16 inch aluminum to provide critical protection for all key components at the front, sides, and of course bottom of the motor. All of our HTP skid plates are CNC cut, bent, and hand-welded at our factory in Boise, Idaho black powder coat. 

  • Custom fitted specifically for the new V-Strom 1000

  • Compatible with OEM crash bars, GIVI Engine Guards as well as Happy Trails Nerf Engine Guards.

  • 3/16" aluminum plate which is 100% welded for maximum strength, not riveted together like some competitors

  • Designed to help protect all the critical areas of the oil system, engine, and exhaust

  • Strategically placed vent holes for air flow to the oil cooler and lower engine while maintaining strength and protection

  • Four mounting points for secure attachment. (2 frame, 2 crash bars)

  • Skid Plate and center-stand are compatible
  •  Black Hammertone powder coat finish is standard.

Fitment Note: Our skid plate requires the use of either OEM or our crash bars/engine guards for the front mount points.

  • Will these fit the heed bars? It has been asked before - just wondering if you have more recent information. Is the fitment with crash bar issue just the diameter of the bar & skid plate mounting hardware?

  • Your description says newer model but seems to show the first generation vstrom in the pictures. Will this fit a 2004 dl1000. I already have your crash bars.
    Question by: Nathan on 2018-01-02 18:28:00

    Yes it will fit the 04 DL 1000, We don't have it listed due the plastic deflector you have to remove and our instructions don't cover that.

  • Will this skid plate support the weight of the bike?
    Question by: scott on 2017-12-28 01:18:00

    Our skid plate will support the weight of the bike if you are using the skid plate as a lift point.

  • Does this skid plate need to be removed for oil change?
    Question by: jim on 2017-10-06 04:35:00

    Some people loosen the front clamps and then remove the rear bolts. This lets it swing down.
