When we saw the meagre original engine protection and the resulting major damage to the engine block, we knew we simply had to develop a stronger plate properly protecting engine, exhaust downpipes and collector.

Background: When the original protector plate is subjected to a strong impact from below or is hooked on something from underneath, it can shear off its front bracket and the rigid rear brackets bend into the engine
cases. Our engine protection plates have pressed strengthening swages greatly increasing stiffness and
stability. We have developed a version for extreme tours which increases the ground clearance by another 25 mm (~1”). Shock-reducing rubber-mounts connect the base plate via a special support frame and spring-loaded decoupling.

The facts:

  • Extremely sturdy and angled in the front, getting “hooked” not possible.
  • Extended toward the rear to protect the collector.
  • No reduction in ground clearance compared to original.
  • 3 mm (~5/32”) thick + strong aluminium plate.
  • 6 attachment points (original only 4).
  • No modifications required to the bike. Easy to fit.
  • Bolted to existing mounting points/threads.
  • Sold complete with complete fitting kit + bolts.

The engine protection plates had to withstand extreme tests on the Rallies of Agadir, Katar, at the Erzberg and during many races and extreme tests. Apart from the added stability and safety, the appearance of the GS is also greatly enhanced.

Excellent design, fits in minutes Review by Vesselin Gerogiev

Very happy with the purchase. It is the right product for those like me who will not through their F700GS into a real off-road adventure, but still want to ensure a decent level of protection for the engine and the exhaust.
Installation was a joke.
The price is a bit of a concern, especially for the customers outside Western Europe who also need to cover shipping costs. Still 5 stars from me...
