And the ULTIMATE Skid Plate is designed to take all of the abuse—and more.
This skid plate fits the following models:
- KTM 790 Adventure R (2019+)

NUTS, BOLTS & BENEFITS
Comprehensive Engine Coverage
Larger dimensions and stouter construction means your $8,000+ engine has max protection. Plus, it fully protects the clutch, ignition cover, header pipes and catalytic converter—most other brands don’t. Many riders don’t realize a replacement header pipe alone costs $1800 (+ labor).
Optimized Ground Clearance and Coverage
Sleek, low profile design optimizes the balance between maintaining crush zones, providing excellent ground clearance and reducing the overall profile to minimize impacts
More Heft = More Protection—3/16-inch (4.76mm) of 5052 Aluminum
You get what you pay for. And we found the optimal material to protect, perform, and last. In fact, it could outlive your bike. The grade of aluminum we selected is designed to ABSORB impacts, not transfer the force to the mounting points on the bike.
Smooth Bottom for Clearing Obstacles
No holes to snag on rocks or branches. This plate glides on its own˜right up over most obstacles without bolts, rubber sliders or rivets to catch or break.
Quick Change Artist—ONE Minute to Remove
Remove just 4 bolts for an oil change / maintenance!
Powder AND Clear Coated
Looks great and takes the punishment that anodized finishes can’t.
Looks Badass on Every Bike
Not that it matters when it’s covered in mud.
Considering the costs of expensive repairs or “extractions” from the backcountry, it’s a bargain!
Made in the U.S.
No bones about it, we manufacture all of our Black Dog products right here in the U.S. It is extremely important to us. We have world class manufacturers in our own back yard and we intend to use them.
Tested and Trusted Worldwide
All of our own products are rigorously tested on our personal bikes BEFORE they’re released. Our innovative and rugged designs are used throughout the world—a fact that we’re very proud of. We make no pretense that we’re the cheapest, but, you can be sure that BDCW products are the best made, and that we stand behind them.
