Together with the Rumbux, the best. The bike weighs 575 lbs. without a rider, afterall.

I feel like less of a man reporting on my measely OEM skid plate...,.,only measurement I have so far I that it weighs 3 pounds. Dealer threw it in as part of the deal, so the price was right. I wouldn't want to drag it over logs or rocks, but it looks fine for gravel and dirt roads....the only place I plan on taking this bike.

i'm in the same boat so don't feel like less of a man. i think the altrider skid plate will do the job for me just fine. i have a dirt bike for gnarly terrain. i will do some offroad, but mainly unmaintained roads, dirt roads.

skid plate

I have the OEM skid plate and I thought it was enough. Mine is now bent up from a trip to a trailhead. Fortunately it did not damage my engine but it made a dent in my header. The adv plate looks great but the price is a lot . The altrider plate looks stronger than OEM. I'll have to made a decision balancing protection vs cost. Thanks to all for posting their opinions.

Does anyone know if the new production ACD skid plate will work with the Altrider crash bars. It looks like they both attach to the engine support bracket at the same location. Is there any interference?

there is a thread over in yamahasupertenere.com under modifications where they are sorting it out at the moment. either by using studs or buying a bolt and cutting the head off to make it a stud.

look under modifications new skidplate arrival. look at the last few pages.

SW Motech Skid Plate!

I did hole the under belly pan in Moab last spring. The SW Skid plate bolts to the center to that weak point on the S10. Still using the same skid plate with a new pan installed. I'm thinking of spraying the bottom of the engine with WD40, reinstalling the skid plate and using Spray Foam Insulation between the two. This would maybe provide more crash cushioning. The reason for the WD40 is so the Spray Foam wouldn't stick to the bottom of the engine, just the skid plate. Anybody tried anything similar?

Do not buy the ACD Super Tenere skid plate. The company has horrible business practices and customer service. They will take your money and then lie to you repeatedly about when you'll get your part. Clearly they do not have any parts in stock, and only manufacture them (in Europe) after a certain number have been ordered and paid for. If you happen to order at the start of one of these cycles, you will be waiting a very long time to get your part. On the other hand, if you don't need it for six months then you might not mind their approach.
