Features, specs and benefits
- Protects crucial areas of the engine – oil pan, engine case, oil cooler, oil filter and exhaust header! That’s a long list of very expensive parts to expose to any sort of damage that will reduce your Africa Twins value in no time.
- Uniquely designed vent system – Not only unique but very-well thought out. No unnecessary holes were designed on this bash plate. As a result, your engine will less likely to overheat when mud and all sorts of debris from off-roading fly at the engine and get stuck between the skid plate and the engine/exhaust header.
- True off-road and adventure shape – What does that even mean?? It means we have experience in building top-notch bash plates. We avoid designing skid plates that are shaped like boxes, have sharp edges and corners and will guaranteed to restrict your rides off road. We design and build skid plates that you will only benefit from while riding on rough terrain.
- 4mm thick laser cut aluminum – Nothing is ever an overkill on an adventure bike, hence we choose to build our bash plates from this ridiculously tough and thick, yet lightweight material.
- Powder coated – combined with sandblasting it’s a killer combination to protect your product’s surface. No frills and tough just like your ADV/Dual Sport bike!

I did have a problem which was handled quickly, fairly, and beyond what I’d normally expect from any vendor. Stellar performance and a superior product!!

Great to hear of your positive experience dealing with Outback Motortek!

Well made and easy to install! A much better protection all around then the OEM plate offers! I am not sure if the plate will increase radiating heat on these hot summer days (so far at 85* with no extra radiating heat from the engine).
Would definitely recommend!

Thanks for your feedback! As for the engine radiating more heat: the sides are wide open, only the front is covered, thus heat won’t get trapped in.
