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 purchase

    Love it, excellent quality, very well made. Highly recommended for one that has a 690r enduro. It gives the motorcycle's engine and frame the best of protection.

    Nice quality and superb fit

    Just put this skid plate on my 21' 690R. Very good fit, finish and quality hardware. Excellent coverage for the exposed 690 motor. The fitment keeps the rear attachment pins in the peg brackets with nice machined fittings which in my mind is a better place to transfer hit energy than on other designs. Easy on and off for oil changes, 3 bolts. Would recommend 100%
