AltRider Skid Plate for the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin

Fits all standard models, Adventure Sports model requires removal of OEM skid plate, optional extension not currently compatible with Adventure Sports model.

Honda makes their return to the adventure market with the rebooted Africa Twin. Like its Dakar-winning predecessors, it’s designed to conquer the toughest terrain you can throw at it. A lot can happen when you leave the pavement on a 534-lb (242-kg) motorcycle. The AltRider skid plate was engineered from the ground up to provide better coverage, strength and ground clearance than any other skid plate on the market. The optional AltRider Skid Plate Extension is a modular add-on part that extends our already generous skid plate protection all the way back to the rear shock linkage.

Honda’s Africa Twin utilizes a classic dirtbike-inspired dual frame rail. AltRider embraced this approach by designing a skid plate that builds on the advantages provided by this type of frame. Unlike other designs on the market, AltRider utilizes four bolt locations on the frame instead of nesting the bracket on one side. This bracket design provides a strong platform to mount the skid plate using four heavy duty M8 (5/16 inch) bolts.

Ground clearance is an extremely important but often overlooked consideration, especially on bigger bikes. Honda made the effort to give this bike substantial clearance, and thanks to the bike’s frame rail design the AltRider skid plate was engineered to retain as much of that clearance as possible when installed. Some skid plates utilize a corrugated design to enhance strength, but those designs also sacrifice clearance. The AltRider skid plate was given a smooth bottom design for max clearance and easy maneuvering over obstacles, and the four mounting points on the frame rails make up that strength.

AltRider’s intelligent bracket design allows users to change the oil with the bracket in place. The skid plate (without optional extension) is also compatible with the center stand on, and can be installed on both DCT and manual transmission models. The one-piece skid plate is simple to install, and all top-quality hardware is provided.

The AltRider Skid Plate Extension is for those riders who are not using a center stand and who want maximum coverage for the underside of their machine, the center stand skid plate is available here. The key to the design is the use of two robust rearward mounting points to create a stiff structure for the additional plate area. The Skid Plate Extension tail extends only 3.75 inches (95.25 mm) beyond our rearmost mount point. Contrast that with some of our competition who have 10.5 inches (266.7 mm) of completely unsupported material.

The forward part of the skid extension sandwiches to the existing AltRider skid plate bracket. The rear of our extension mounts on the left side to the center stand pivot point, and on the right to the massive factory frame bracket. This sandwich construction means that the main skid plate is further strengthened by having two more attachment points to spread any load to. By using the factory frame bracket we are able to pick up a robust mount point as far rearward as possible, which creates a much more rigid structure for the tail of our skid. This part is specifically engineered to fit perfectly with the AltRider Skid Plate for the Honda Africa Twin, and requires that skid plate be installed.

    Functional Art

    Wow! I just installed the AltRider Skid Plate on my Africa Twin Adventure Sports. This is so much stronger than the OEM Belly Pan and it fits lie a glove. The finish detailing makes it look like a piece of art - but it is clearly designed and built to protect a large ADV bike.

    Very Strong Skid Plate

    This is a very strong skid plate. Ive got several thousand miles off road with it now, and have bounced this heavy bike off rock, stumps, river beds and tank traps. No problems at all. This thing is nearly bullet proof. If you want to see and install video on this skid plate, copy and paste the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wx2XdxrkdWc&t=12s Backcountry Adventure Motorsports
