Expedition Skid Plate, Suzuki V-Strom DL1000, 2014-on
The V-Strom DL1000 was designed to be an adventure-travel ready machine, but Suzuki left the engine, exhaust manifolds, and oil filter severely exposed and vulnerable to damage. If you plan on riding this bike on any kind of dirt, gravel, or off-road trails, the Touratech Expedition Skid Plate is a necessity to ensure your motorcycle's engine is safe during your adventure.
Since the DL1000 has no subframe under its engine, it is particularly vunerable to impact from underneath, especially the exhaust manifolds. The Touratech Expedition skid plate features a mounting system that gives it support from the main frame of the bike with its tubular front mount framework,and rugged stainless steel plate rear mounts. This skid plate does not mount to the engine in any way, and distributes any force from an impact directly to the frame of the motorcycle.
The Expedition Skid Plate also features a high-strength, fiber-reinforced polyamid nylon slider that absorbs impact and provides a sliding surface for negotiating obstacles. It's wide and long design gives excellent coverage to the bottom of the engine block, exhaust headers, and also extends upwards at the front to protect the oil filter.
