The ULTIMATE in new-aged plastic skid plates for your KTM 690, Husqvarna 701, and the new GasGas700. This plate is made from 3/8" thick (9.5mm) UHMW that is Thermo-Formed for a contoured shape which improves fitment and maintains ground clearance. This is not cold-broke and welded like HDPE plates. UHMW has 10X the wear resistance of mild steel and is self-lubricating for an extremely low coefficient of friction unlike the competition.

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.

    Parts for my 2023 Gas Gas ES700

    Hi Andrew.
    I just wanted to take the time to write a note and let you know that I received all of my parts last week and I installed them on this past Saturday.
    Ordering them was simple and they were packaged beautifully and delivered promptly!
    All the parts fit like a glove and were delivered as described.
    The skid-plate, 10" upper fork protectors, stainless steel foot pegs, kickstand foot pad and billet fuel fill all fit perfectly, were easy to install and look beautiful as well. Everybody likes a little bit of "bling factor"!!!
    Feel free to use this email as a review if you want!!
    So thanks again for everything and now I'm going to go back to your website and continue shopping for this weeks purchases. 😂😂🤣🤣👍👍🇺🇸🇺🇸

    LOVE THIS SKID PLATE - on my 2023 690

    But the best part is the service and delivery from Vanasche - these guys are best in class and I simply would not buy anywhere else.

    I also purchased 5-6 other items and am so happy!

    701 Skid Plate

    The order took all of 4 days from the US to Australia, Awesome!!!!! Sat in the garage for half an hour to assemble and adhere the stickers and all done. Fit and finish is Mint, and can take a hit over logs, rocks ect I could not rate the Vanasche plate any higher.
    Thanks Mate. Owen 👍🏻

    Feels super heavy-duty

    If you’re not familiar with UHMW, it’s super tough. So that’s what initially attracted me to this skidplate instead of others: I trust the material. Imagine a 3/8" thick cutting board wrapped around your engine. Install on the 690 was straightforward, but do yourself a favor and leave the bolts holding the mounting pins loose, otherwise you likely won’t won’t be able to fully insert them into the grommets in the frame. Tighten the hardware once you have them fully seated. I like the fact that this skidplate also protects the shock linkage. Time will tell if it’s as tough as it looks, but it sure as hell looks (and feels) tough! It's a beast.

    Amazing skid

    This is my first non metallic skid plate. Very impressed, super thick yet you don’t loose any ground clearance. One of the easiest and straight forward installs I’ve done in a long time. And the biggest thing is it doesn’t vibe or make any noise like some of my Aluminum skids do. Great product thanks guys!
