Product Details



I went looking for protection for my first new bike ever, a 2018 KTM 300 XC-W Six Days. I knew if I was going to race hard enduro with this bike I was going to need some serious protection if I didn't want to buy a new pipe every few weeks. 

As soon as I saw the Emperor Racing Pipe Guard Skid Plate Pipe Guard I knew it was what I was looking for. 

What you Need to know:

  • Does NOT touch the pipe anywhere
  • Full linkage protection
  • Entire sides protected- Cases have protective flange and pipe has full coverage
  • Does Not pack with Mud
  • 3/16" Aluminum makes it ultra tough
  • Hand welded for exact fit 
  • Beautifully CNC machined to look very sharp yet still protect 
  • Snug-fit spacers makes install quick & easy 
  • 6lbs w/o slip liner, 7lbs with
  • Microcell foam included making the fit vibration-free
  • All impacts are absorbed and not transferred to frame
  • Don't need to remove skid for oil change 
  • Optional Slip liner for gliding over obstacles with ease





After having ridden these plates for 2 years and raced them for a complete season without any issues whatsoever, I can tell you these are tough as hell and kept me riding. This Emperor skid plate pipe guard has prevented DNFs, bent pipes, crushes cases, cracked flange, screwed-up stator. That's the stuff that i'm worried about around here. 


They have an awesome warranty they stand behind. I hit a rock while moving at a good clip. The plate acted as a crumple zone and together with my pipe just folded in and bent at the joint. I rode the rest of the day with my buds. I was within 2yr warranty, covered shipping back to Emperor and they had me a new Skid Plate Pipe Guard that week. 


I have had all sorts of damage prevented from running these pipe guards. Some of the hits that left these marks would have crushed a pipe, or worse. 



Emperor Racing make this and other similar type protection products for all sorts of bikes. Old and new. If you're in the market for some premium protection that looks killer, take a look at Emperor Racing. They will keep you riding and the peace of mind that comes from solo rides in rough terrain is awesome.

A little heavy, but its the best protecting you can get.
