A 4/5mm Aluminium tig welded bashplate with a powder coated covering. Not to be confused with inferior products this RTW expedition tested guard will NOT let you down and is certified Adventure Spec.


KTM's 950 and 990 LC8 Adventure represent the highest evolution of the 'Big Trail-bike' or 'Dual Sport' machine.

Honed in the deserts of North Africa and piloted to victory in the Dakar by Fabrizio Meoni, the Adventure is truly race bred.
Our sump guard offers superb protection for true hardcore off-road adventure.

With a 5mm aircraft grade aluminium centre section mounted to tough steel mounts the guard really performs. Side panels of 4mm aluminium keep weight down while providing plenty of protection from  flying rocks and tip overs.

We incorporated an area in the front of the guard to take a tool-pouch with enough room to keep the heavy stuff, like chain breakers, levers and big sockets. The space takes a Kriega tool-roll perfectly or whatever else you can slot in. There are slots in the box panel to allow the fitment of a webbing strap to keep everything in place (not included, be creative!). We tested the clearance with a Desert tyre on maximum compression and fork flex so theres plenty of clearance!

The front mount features a permamently fitted machined spacer plate to give a perfect fit with the curved casting to the front of the LC8's engine. The rear mounting plate hinges on the frame allowing access to your tools by the removal of only two button head 5mm allen bolt to the front of the bashplate . All fastenings are stainless and all fittings are powdercoated to match the colour of your guard

Available in three layer Black Powdercoat finish.

Compatible with 950 and 990 Adventure, Adventure S and Adventure R (all years).

Installation Tips for Motorcycle Bashplates

  1. Remove the factory bash plate.
  2. Fit the bracket to the rear of the guard using the 3 countersunk bolts, nylock nuts and washers. There will be a small amount of play in these bolts so check that the edge of the guard and the bracket run parallel.
  3. The rear of the guard can be fixed to the original mounting holes using two M6 button head bolts (do NOT try and use the rubber parts off the factory bash plate)
  4. At the front take the machined aluminium spacer plate and hold this up against the aluminium casting between the fuel tanks. This should fit into the slot cut into the spacer plate.
  5. Now hold the L-shaped bracket up to this so the curved edges match. Fix them both into the casting using two M6 button head bolts.
  6. Lift up the sumpguard and fix to the bracket using two M6 buttonhead bolts!


The area in the front of the guard is designed to fit a tool roll (we used a Kriega one). There are slots cut into the separating plate to allow straps to fit around to hold your items in place!


Have fun and enjoy the ride!
