Constructed of a 4mm-thick aluminum body that is bent and welded for heavy-duty, light-weight protection. The base of the body 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 skid plate with a little more protection and you will not install a set of crash bars you can order Part # MSS.08.347.10001. You will NOT be able to install a set of crash bars with MSS.08.347.10001.
Video review of the Twisted Throttle Kawasaki KLR 650 Demo Bike:
All hardware needed to mount the skid plate 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 skid plate installed.
The skid plate's front mounting point is hinged so that the skid plate can be pivoted out of the way after releasing the two rear skid plate mount bolts. This makes maintenance and oil changes much faster than with our competitor's non-hinged skid plates.
Produced exclusively for Twisted Throttle by SW-MOTECH.

What it's NOT: it's not a true skid plate. The bolts on the bottom are NOT recessed and may shear off with the right rock.
I'm glad I got it-- fair price, great manufacturing-- but aggressive off-roaders may want a different design. (Posted on 3/15/16)
