- 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!
Skid plate: 2016- 2019 standard and 2018-2019 Adventure Sports. One skid plate for all models. Compatible with both Outback Motortek and OEM centre stands.

Tested over 60kkms included in Upper Caucasus, Balkans and Turkey unforgiving trails : Super robust, perfectly efficient and easy to mount / remove for maintenance. Typical product which can be labelled “NO BULLSHIT DESIGN”. Would buy it again without hesitation! Moreover, it was a pleasure to deal with Lorry who is not only very professional and an advanced adventure rider who knows his stuff but also very friendly.
Parcel was shipped very quickly right before my trip and packacking was perfect.
Score : 10/10.

Nice Part! But the fitting could be a bit better. There is no space between the skidplate and the exhaust manifold. That’s the only reason for 4 Stars

Hi Ralf. Thank you for your feedback. It must be an aftermarket exhaust header because the OEM one does not come in contact with our skid plate.

Everything on my bike is stock.. Sadly it fits just like this. Anyway i still like all your parts! The look is brilliant! Still will recommend to buy your parts 🙂

Satisfied with the part, with some improvement suggestions:
1. fitment could be better, on my bike I struggled to mount the bolts because the alignment was at the very edge.
2. there could be some sound deadening material on the plate, more engine noise is now deflected upwards.
