A quality skid plate is a must-have item for serious off road riding. Our Happy Trails skid plate improves upon a basic proven skid plate design that we have been offering for over a decade.

Many 650GS models come with a thin 2mm (0.08") aluminum protection plate which is usually adequate if your plan is to stay on the paved roads or maybe some low speed gravel. But for anything more, it leaves too many vulnerable areas, especially on the sides of the engine case and bottom rear of the engine where large trail rocks or tree branches can easily punch through the case and quickly end your ride. The optional OEM tubular skid plate "cage" does add some additional front and side protection, but still leaves the rear of the engine vulnerable -- and weighs in at 6.7 additional pounds.

Happy Trails utilizes 3/16" (0.188) fully welded aluminum throughout for maximum durability and protection while providing plenty of side and full bottom of the engine protection. We then mount to the frame at 5 locations for a very secure fit. And finally we provide rubber frame rail isolators to help disperse impacts to the bottom of the plate while providing a level of sound dampening from flying rocks and debris.

All HTP skid plates are hand-bent, fitted, and welded at our factory in Boise, Idaho, before applying a durable Hammertone Black color powder coat finish to match our racks and Nerf bars.


  • Custom fitted for all G650GS/F650GS Single Cylinder models 2000 or newer including Dakar and Sertao

  • Protects the vulnerable engine side cases to a higher degree than OEM plate.

  • Adventure proven 1/8 inch aluminum plate is used throughout for strength and long term durability

  • Rubber frame rail isolators add impact dispersion and sound dampening features.

  • Since we can cut whatever shape holes we want, we added some premium engraving to compliment the bike.

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

  • Compatible with our PD NERF engine guard

  • Can the skid plate for bmw Dakar be just plain aluminum without paint? Thanks ;)
    Question by: Edwin on 2018-10-23 01:59:00

    Yes it can be ordered in Bare Aluminum. HTP1-3-88 is the number; it is not stocked at this time due to volume. It would be 2-3 weeks out. Give us a call @ 800-444-8770 and we can get it on order for you.

  • Can I get this skid plate without the HTP welded into the sides?I might like BMW or GS welded into the side.And, do you ever have a sale?Thanks
    Question by: Martin on 2016-05-31 18:10:00

    The sides are cut and engraved with the HTP when we make them, That is the only option.

    Sales on that product are not common.
