The SW-MOTECH aluminum skidplate engine guard for your Triumph Tiger 1050 is constructed of a 3mm thick piece of aluminum for heavy-duty, light-weight protection. The sides of this engine guard wrap around the engine block to provide side protection. Available in a powder coated black finish.
This skidplate can be used with or without SW-MOTECH's centerstand for the Tiger 1050.

1) Removal of the plate is required for oil changes, understandable considering the oil filter is underneath the engine facing down. Unfortunately to detach the plate there are 6 bolts with loose nuts, which I can see losing. It would be better with captive nuts in the mounts, just one less thing to lose.
2) The plate covers the bottom of the engine nicely, but the coolant hose running along the left side of the engine, and the oil line on the right are unprotected.
I emailed SW Motech about these deficiencies but have not heard back from them. (Posted on 1/19/16)
