Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW) is pleased to announce their new skid plate for the BMW R1200GS / GS Adventure. Renowned for producing rugged skid plates for the KTM 950/990 Adventure and 950 Super Enduro, BDCW has leveraged their experience with those motorcycles to develop the most advanced skid plate available for the BMW R1200GS / GSA. It offers the MOST protection of the engine case and header pipes – PERIOD.
This design suspends the rear of the skid plate from the framework of the bike, eliminating the direct connection to the engine block which is found on the stock and other aftermarket skid plates. The use of the rubber shear blocks that thread into the engine block found on OTHER designs can put your ride, your engine and your wallet at risk. The BDCW kit eliminates this risk, includes a center stand guard and requires the removal of only six bolts to change the oil. SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE, SAFE and MADE IN THE U.S.A. A great combination by any measure.
This skid plate is a MUST HAVE for the serious off-road rider on a R1200GS or R1200GS Adventure. Give yourself piece of mind while riding off-road, potentially save yourself a lot of coin by not cracking your case and avoid a long walk home while leaving your bike abandoned in the middle of nowhere. Both you and your bike deserve better.
Black Dog Cycle Works designs and manufactures custom accessories for adventure touring motorcycles as well as offers quality aftermarket parts from various suppliers. They test what they sell and their passion for adventure riding and providing their clients with excellent customer service is well established in the industry. Personalize service and knowledgable, experienced staff who are able to advise customers how to set up their bikes to meet their individual needs is what sets BDCW apart from others in the marketplace.
