BMW R1200GS Skid Plate Overview - Touratech

As it is perfectly suitable for the terrain the R1200GS constantly invites you to go on extensive off road trips. So that this remains an unalloyed pleasure, we have developed a sump guard especially for the R1200GS. Any knocks or impact are distributed over the whole engine block so that the engine housing is protected in the best possible way. When used on rough terrain the bike can slide much more easily over stones, rocks and uneven ground because of the angled shape of the front of the sump guard.

BMW R1200GS Skid Plate - The Touratech skid plate is crafted from lightweight and strong aluminum plate and is welded in the corners to increase strength. A low profile design maximizes ground clearance and the 6 mounting points offer a reliable connection to your BMW R1200GS or GS Adventure.

Why do you need a skid plate on the R1200GS? Because the motorcycle has a large motor and no frame to protect the underside. This means that in rough terrain and off-pavement riding situations you can easily damage the motor by bottoming out without the appropriate protection.

Touratech has engineered 6 mounting points to ensure a reliable connection to the motorcycle. The Touratech system utilizes a bonded-rubber isolator connection to ensure that the plate absorbs the impact while transferring the least force possible to the engine.

Touratech has designed the skid plate to have a smooth bottom surface.  In the case that the bike contacts the ground, or a log, for example, the smooth surface allows the R1200GS to slide over the obstacle.

With a total length measuring 24 inches, the protection extends from the front exhaust crossover all the way back to the center stand. The catalytic converter is completely protected.

Touratech skid plates have been tested by world travelers in some of the most remote and rugged places on earth. The Touratech skid plate for the R1200GS is the only one trusted by GlobeRiders founder, Helge Pedersen. 

"I've ridden thousands of miles all over the world, crossing rocky rivers, bouncing through pot-holed dirt roads and shaking my teeth loose on washboard surfaces.  The Touratech skid plate has protected the engine every mile of the way.  This is the only skid plate I trust and recommend to my clients."

- Helge Pedersen, Founder, GlobeRiders

For additional protection consider our Skid plate Reinforcement Kit

(044-0300 up to 2007, or 044-3040 2008-on). This is an additional protector that adds a layer of steel PLUS a rubber cushion between the skidplate and the most vulnerable part of the sump; for use in sharp rocks or other extreme terrain.

NOTE: If you have the 30th Anniversary Edition 1200GS with the special "Enduro" skid plate, or have the optional "Enduro" skid plate installed from the dealership, you need to purchase extra parts to fit our skidplate to your motorcycle.  You have two options:

1) Go to your BMW dealer and purchase the "normal" front skidplate bracket, BMW part # 11117695189 to mount this skid plate.


2) Purchase our "Skid Plate Reinforcement Kit".  This item is a much stronger, and more protective version of the BMW part 11117695189.
