Leaving the road on your Sporty you risk the underbody of your bike being rock blasted by nasty gravel particles. There are ruts and potholes just waiting to scrape your frame. Fallen tree branches, beetles, manure – many dangers for the nether parts of your bike are lurking out there. Good for the motorcyclist who can defy them with the BATES Skid Plate for Sportsters. Easy to install, this beauty protects frame and engine from encounters of the unexpected kind. If you see a certain similarity between this skid plate and the LeBeef skid plate we can tell you: they are not only similar, they’re virtually identical and are designed to the same level of toughness, but they’re made of lightweight aluminium. LeBeef keeps supplying us with his handmade steel skid plates; by agreement with LeBeef we source the aluminium version where it is being made to our high quality standards to earn the right to bear the BATES name. For adventurous Sportster riders who keep an eye on the weight of things (usually that of their bike), this skid plate could be a welcome alternative.
