Tiger 900 GT skid plate
« on: September 21, 2020, 03:03:34 AM »
I could not find the original Triumph part for the skid plate for Tiger 900 GT. Do they offer one?

The alternatives are from SW-MOTECH and Hepco & Becker. Can anyone confirm that
they are compatible with Triumph lower and upper engine guards?

Thanks!

Part number for the aluminium sump guard for the GT is A9700423.
It can be fitted with the Triumph upper and lower crash bars.

I've contacted SW-MOTECH and Hepco & Becker and they both confirmed that their skid plates are not compatible
with Triumph's engine guards. So if you have upper and lower bars from Triumph, the only option is the OEM skid plate.

That said, comparing pictures of H&B and Triump skid plates I could not see any differences. See for yourself:


I suspect Triumph may selling their part under their own brand, like they did with Topboxes from Givi. But perhaps like with Givi mounts they made small incompatible changes...

To be sure, I've ordered original sump guard from Triumph.

That link is to the H&B engine bars with the OEM skid plate on a Rally model.

You are right! Wrong link. Here is the correct link:

The drawing looks different from the OEM one.

The triumph engine bars and the Hepco skid are compatible. I have them fitted to the Rally pro even the Hepco site says they are compatible.
