Constructed of a 4mm-thick aluminum base plate and 3mm-thick side plates for heavy-duty, light-weight protection. Where the base plates and side plates overlap, it forms a riveted 7mm-thick rail for extra rigidity. Base plate includes side protectors that wrap around the engine block to provide both bottom and side protection.Special Note: This item fits the KLR650 '87-'07 with or without SW-MOTECH Crash Bars. If you would like a skidplate with a little more protection and you will not install a set of crashbars you can order Part # MSS.08.347.10001. You will NOT be able to install a set of crashbars with MSS.08.347.10001.
Video review of the Twisted Throttle Kawasaki KLR 650 Demo Bike:
All hardware needed to mount the skidplate 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 infamous KLR650 "Doohickey" (the left-side balancer chain tension adjuster) is accessible with the skidplate installed.
The skidplate's front mounting point is hinged so that the skidplate can be pivoted out of the way after releasing the two rear skidplate mount bolts. This makes maintenance and oil changes much faster than with our competitor's non-hinged skidplates.
