The SW-MOTECH aluminum engine guard skid plate is 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.

In late summer 2010, we had a very successful skid plate test with an adventure rider sponsored by Honda Canada named Patrick Trahan. Patrick lofted his Varadero's front wheel and came down on a log at speed, high centering the bike on the skid plate. No damage to the bike. When he (accidentally?) did a similar maneuver in a competition before he had our skid plate, he punched a hole in the engine case. Ugh. We're not suggesting you try this test at home kids; no skid plate can protect you from ALL damage ALL the time, but we know our skid plate adds substantial protection to a very vulnerable spot on this bike.

Jody at TT quickly reordered from the US warehouse and got me the skid plate in a week. Much appreciated! Skid plate is installed and looks great on my Varadero with my other SW Motech kit. Went on reasonably quickly with only a couple issues - instructions were a bit off and the supplied large washers for the large support bolt were the wrong size and didn't fit onto the to save time running out to the store, I drilled them out to fit. All in all, lessons learned and looks great. (Posted on 3/17/2017)
