AltRider Releases Skid Plate for Kawasaki KLR 650

Killer Coverage – KLR 650 Skid Plate from AltRider

With only one major update since its inception over 25 years ago, the venerable Kawasaki KLR650 is an off-road workhorse.

However, one of the Kawasaki’s weaknesses is a serious lack of protection for the bottom of the motor. Adventure motorcycle outfitter AltRider now offers a smart solution with their skid plate for the KLR650.

The AltRider skid plate fits all KLR650’s 1987 to present. Post-2008 owners have the option to upgrade the stamped sheet metal supports that attach the plastic stock skid plate to AltRider’s robust 3/16” stainless steel brackets – giving the best protection for real adventure action.

Brackets are automatically added for pre-2008 KLR’s. The tough skid plate protects the sump, water pump and dangerously exposed oil lines from pesky logs, rocks and other trip-ending trail debris. The robust styling perfectly complements the rugged lines of Kawasaki’s adventure motorcycle. The skid plate is available in silver or black.

Seattle-based AltRider specializes in producing top-quality adventure motorcycle accessories that are 100% designed and manufactured in the USA. AltRider utilizes only the highest standard in production techniques – Hand-TIG welding, CNC tube bending and 5-axis laser cutting are just a few of the methods that set them apart. AltRider is also known for their public involvement with the riding community offering training events, access to exclusive riding terrain, and more.
