Special Note: This item fits the KLR650 ’87-’07 with or without SW-MOTECH Crash Bars. If you would like a skid plate with a little more protection and you will not install a set of crash bars you can order Part # MSS.08.347.10001. You will NOT be able to install a set of crash bars with MSS.08.347.10001.

All hardware needed to mount the skid plate is included. Typically installs using basic hand tools. No welding cutting or drilling of existing frame or body parts required. Designed to work with OEM components — we cannot assure fit with aftermarket exhausts or other accessories. 

The KLR650 “Doohickey” (the left-side balancer chain tension adjuster) is accessible with the skid plate installed. We knew you’d like that.

The skid plate’s front mounting point is hinged so that the skid plate can be pivoted out of the way after releasing the two rear skid plate mount bolts. This makes maintenance and oil changes much faster than with our competitor’s non-hinged skid plates. 

Produced exclusively for Twisted Throttle by SW-MOTECH.

    Basic protection upgrade, no more


    First of all, what this IS: it’s a big step up from the stock plastic bash guard. Easy to install, it’ll protect even a stock profile drain plug and it won’t buckle on baby heads.
    What it’s NOT: it’s not a true skid plate. The bolts on the bottom are NOT recessed and may shear off with the right rock.
    I’m glad I got it– fair price, great manufacturing– but aggressive off-roaders may want a different design.

    Very easy to install!


    Bought this because it fit with SW-Motech crash bars. Really easy to install. Not as rugged (plate is thinner) as some other skid plates, but when combined with crash bars I think everything is well protected.

    Killer skid plate


    GIt this to go along with the crash bars. Very happy with the quality. Mounted very easily and actually gives you access to the drain plug.

    All Business!


    Comparing this product to the OEM factory plastic version, it is superb in every way. This should provide protection in most any situation you and your KLR find yourselves.
