Happy Trails KLR650 Gen 3 Skid Plate Impact Isolator Kit, This is the insurance policy that assures you the skid plate will do its job.
A quality skid plate is a must-have item for serious off-road riding. Our Happy Trails skid plate for the KLR650 improves on a basic proven skid plate design we have been offering for. One of those long-standing features has been to incorporate noise reduction technology to reduce reflected noise to the rider. But even more important is this kit's design to promote impact dissipation rather than transferring all energy to the mounts.
Years ago we found with the KLR650 skid plate that we could go from 3/16 inchť to 3/8 inch aluminum bottoms but direct impacts on the skid plates could bend them and potentially crack the case. The better solution was using rubber matting on the floor of the skid plate and having preload with the bottom of the case. With this approach the impact would cushion and disperse the point of impact so the skid plate does not dent, bend or flex causing destruction of the case. This has been an in-shop service we haveve provided for years for local customers at Happy Trails and on our own personal bikes.
You will receive: Rubber insulator and instructions
Install note: The pad "squishes" up against the case and the installer needs to fully understand the concept. If it is tight it can't compress.
