    2021 850GS skid plate fit isue

    Howdy,
    I just purchased a 21 850GS. Its the 40 anniversary Bumble Bee edition with the yellow engine guards. The skid plate is the standard plastic issue with the oil plug access. That's nice but not up to the protection I'm hoping for.

    I purchased the GIVI skid plate but it's too wide to attach because the engine guards are in the way. Wunderlich is out of stock indefinitely of the example they have on their Bumble Bee. Does anyone else know a metal skid plate that's narrow enough to fit?

    Thanks!
    Jim

    Don't know if this is applicable, but this thread on Page 4 mentions a BMW heavy duty skid plate for a '19 model.

    I have this on my 2021 850GS, along with the factory engine guards. Everything fit up nicely, and the skid plate seems to be reasonably protective for anything less than heavy-duty dirt riding.
