AltRider Skid Plate - BMW S 1000 XR

The bottom of a motorcycle is the most susceptible to hits from curbs, rocks, debris, and nearly everything else and needs the most solid protection. Gain long term confidence for your BMW S 1000 XR with an AltRider Skid Plate. AltRider's team has brought together a smart design leveraging knowledge from Altrider's long list of existing skid plates as well as addressing the challenges the XR presents in terms of its frame and low clearance. AltRider has added new and innovative features to bring forth Altrider's best skid plate yet.Constructed of 3.175 mm (1/8”) lightweight aluminum, it provides the most coverage on the market without adding excessive weight to your bike. The slightly tapered and rib-cage-like design protects the engine vitals without interfering with a rider’s mobility or controls. Full coverage from front to back means the bike is protected against any debris kicked up by the front tire.Whereas a solid skid plate would bottle in heat, the AltRider Skid Plate has strategically placed cut-outs to allow maximum air flow and heat dissipation without compromising protection.Modular powder-coated steel mounting brackets are utilized to connect the skid plate as well as Altrider's crash bars, to create one solid protection package. A cross tube connects the brackets which provides unparalleled strength and is the backbone to creating such a unique and complete system. This design feature was necessary due to the low clearance and aluminum frame on the XR and the AltRider system is the only one on the market to utilize this. All these features make the AltRider Skid Plate an essential tool in your riding arsenal to keep your bike protected and your adventures endless. Available in anodized black or silver. The AltRider Skid Plate is NOT combatible with OEM bars. NOTE: Close proximity of the left rear mounting bracket to the chain creates a potential for contact in certain zero-G scenarios (ie airborne scenarios). This was necessary to create a skid plate that maintains essential ground clearance while cornering as well as fully protects vital elements of the bike. There is no risk of damage or wear to the high-tensile strength hardened alloy steel chain.
