Dual purpose, functions as a bumper and skid plate with the look of a stylish spoiler. Your worries are over, no more expensive paint damage. No more dangerous evasive moves to miss roadkill or tire treads and if a live small critter jumps out in front of you, well you know.
Made from 3/8” black HDPE (High Density Polyethylene), tough and slick. Replaces that tiny skid plate that lets you tear up your body.
It attaches to the lower flexible area for impact absorption without damaging the body. Ground clearance is not a problem due to the thin profile. It protects everything from the nose to the suspension including the leading edge of the frame. There is no interference with servicing or cooling as it covers the bottom of the trunk area only!
The coverage eliminates air drag from the open cavity under the nose. Added down force is created by the spoiler styling.
Having already replaced the lower grille twice, and the front fairing once due to the nose being so low and exposed, I thought I would give this a look. The BumpSkid fastens to the underside of the plastic fairing, which is the reason there are so many bolts. However 4 of the bolts at the rear of the BS anchor it to the steel frame. It extends roughly an inch in front of the trike and is cut to perfectly match the shape of the front pieces on the trike. While installing it I could see that I already had some scrapes on the nose of the trike. I believe this will easily handle all future scrapes in that area, and since it is a solid black, the scratches won't show and could be filed down or sanded out if desired.Kirk

Bumpskid for '17 F3L
We revived our package in two days after ordering. Everyone loves fast and free shipping! Very easy to install and it looks great. This is the second Bumpskid we have purchased from Spyderpops, the first went on my wife's '14 RT. Both were high quality and easy to install. Pete Whitley

Skid bump plate
One of the best investments you will make on your bike. Lots of dead animals on the road and when riding in a group it is hard to swerve in time. Lots of places to bump the nose of the bike so having a skid bump plate is a huge plus!Unknown
