* Tank Guards are required for the 2023 and newer KTM 890 R/S/Rally models for use with our Skid Plate
* These Tank Guards fit prior year KTM 790/890 Adventures with the Black Dog Skid Plate
* DOES NOT FIT any Husqvarna Norden 901s
New for all 2023 KTM 890 ADV Models (and Prior) - with the redesign of the 2023 OEM "Skid Plate" (the humungous one piece, paper thin skid plate / tank guards), we had to come up with a solution to protect the fuel tanks so we did asked the question that we always ask with new protection products - "what is the most rugged solution we can create that will hold up to the abuse we know our customers will put their bikes through"...SOLUTION: we created aluminum tank guards, made of the same 3/16" aluminum of our skid plates, that bolt DIRECTLY to the Black Dog Skid Plate. We can think of a more burly solution than that AND the set only weighs just over 6 pounds!
Note: These guards are required for all 2023 KTM 890 models (or you could opt for the original plastic guards found on the earlier model 790/890s if you prefer that solution).

NUTS, BOLTS & BENEFITS
Comprehensive Fuel Tank Coverage
Burly design to cover keep major components safe such as the fuel tank, fuel pump and connectors yet the pair only weigh 6 lbs. Much lighter than most crash bar solutions with better protection.
Bolts directly to the Black Dog Ultimate Skid Plate
We can't think of a more burly mounting solution than that!
The RIGHT Material = 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.
Powder AND Clear Coated
Looks great and takes the punishment that anodized finishes can’t.
Rubber cushion between tank and tank guard
Protects the finish on the lower fuel tank
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!
