Vanasche Motorsports has teamed up with Molecule Motosports, an expert in Thermo-Forming UHMW skid plates, to produce a proper plate to best all others.

We wanted to produce a plate that was extremely tough, durable, highly wear & impact resistant, and still offered the sound abatement qualities of plastic plates. Coming from an industrial background we knew that the only real option that would outperform all other plastics in an application such as this was UHMWPE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene).

Vanasche Motorsports handled the precision machined components while Molecule cut and formed the UHMW plate. A partnership that will serve our customer base the best performance skid plates available.

    Great skid plate

    Seems very durable. Had to notch it in order for it to fit with crash bars. Much better than stock skid plate on 690 enduro. Shipped quickly and arrived in about a week. Very pleased.

    Skid plate and Bar riser

    Great products, ever better customer service.

    i picked this over axp.

    I love the look. fits extremely tight but doesn't negatively affect ground clearance. I also like the fact it utilizes factory mounting. Vanasche seems like they make great stuff. I am happy.

    Skid Plate Review

    Very happy with the skid plate, coverage is awesome, installs easily, price is great for a quality product. I've been in the motorcycle business 20 years and have seen a lot of inferior products and useless products. Everything I've put on my personal 701 husky from Vanasche has been top quality. My customers are also jazzed with the quality of product that I'vegot them from Vanasche.

    Outstanding product and fitment.
    During my NE BDR adventure a New York boulder jumped up and punctured the bottom/side of my clutch casing -- this plate covers the area and it won't happen again!
