Compatible Skid Plate and Touratech Crash Bars
« on: January 18, 2021, 01:27:17 PM »
I have a set of Touratech crash bars on my F850GS.  Does anyone know who makes a compatible skid plate that works with these bars other than Touratech?  I'm looking for something with a little more coverage that what they offer.

I should add that this is a 2021 model year bike...apparently that makes a difference.

I would contact either altrider or black dog cycleworks and ask them directly. I also have a 21 GS and was starting to look into what crashbars and skid plate to go for. I wanted all to be same company to avoid fitment issue. That would leave me with H&B or Wunderlich. And I know BDCW goes with the H&B bars as they sell them. (Altrider still has not released their crash bars yet)  In your case though a direct call for verification would be best.

Did you look at the Touratech Rallyeform?  I have that on my bike, it's got a lot more coverage than their basic skid plate.

Now I see the Rallyeform doesn't fit the 2021   :110:
