    Extreme Skid Plate, Silver

    The development of the "Dakar" engine protection plate began shortly after the 1200 GS was introduced. Extreme rides however proved that further improvements were possible and so the "Extreme" protection plate was subsequently developed as a result. For many riders, our lower priced "Dakar" plate is more than sufficient and indeed, a vast improvement over the stock plate. The "Extreme" plate is for the extreme rider, who might wind up in places where there's some serious rock bashing to be done.

    First, a sturdy aluminum carrier fitted with silent block bushings is bolted to the bottom of the engine. The "Extreme" plate then attaches to the carrier. This design allows rubber mounting of the plate, an important attribute for such a part. The carrier however allows the rubber mounts to be positioned to the outside of the sump and the result is increased ground clearance as compared to other mounting systems.

    The facts:

    • Steep angle in front to prevent getting "hooked".
    • Protects the collector at the rear.
    • Ground clearance increased by 25 mm (1") compared to original.
    • 4 mm (~5/32") thick + strong aluminum plate.
    • Strengthening swages + shape make this plate almost indestructible.
    • No modifications needed, easy attachment.
    • Bolted to existing mounting points/threads.
    • Sold complete with complete fitting kit + bolts.

    Great protection, usual poor instructions
    A very well designed skit plate - protects filter and oil cooler as well, and the rubber-bushing mounts should help take up some of the shock and minimize damage (sheered bolts, etc) on minor impacts. I can attest that it fits with the Wunderlich "Adventure" aka "Krauser" engine bars. I installed on a F700GS with factory low suspension, and one of the things I really appreciate is how little ground clearance you give up with this design. Given that in general Wunderlich is a "high end" accessory outfit, it never ceases to amaze me how poor their documentation is. But as usual - take some extra time and sort of reverse engineer things and eventually you'll get it. This one is not to bad, but definitely could be easier with better instructions. All said: I definitely recommend.

    Great look and addition to help with protection
    Nice product. Not as heavy duty as I would expect for the price. But I believe it would work. Again work on instructions

    Great ground clearance, decent strength
    The ground clearance on this seems great compared to a few that I've seen or installed on different bikes. The thickness of the material and the fact that it's aluminum means that a direct hit to a large rock could deform the plate, but maybe that's a good thing. Rubber mounts all around and a bit of *give* to the whole plate could absorb a decent amount of energy that would otherwise go straight into the motor. Side-note, I can confirm that the black plate also looks nice in person!
