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.

    A bit expensive for a skid plate but I'm satisfied: good coverage, strong and light!

    Skid plate

    Thanks for your review opportunity. I have not received my skid plate after 14 days. It appears my order is on holiday in San Francisco as it has been there for 10 days now. Not happy!!

    Well made product.

    This skid plate fit perfectly. It gives a huge amount of protection to my 690. Fantastic product. Great people to do business with.

    Thick, protective, good coverage. Fits like a glove. It’s also flat on the bottom, makes it easy to balance the bike on a service stand.
