Happy to have the extra protection
2014 & UP RT/RTS/LTD - BumpSkid TM Ultimate protection for your Roadster.
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.
Very easy to install with all hardware and instructions included and shown below.
Happy to have the extra protection
i believe it will save the front end from damage, build strong and easy to install
Received my bump skid and it is great. Cant wait to get it put on. very thick and will provide protection for my spyder.great shipping and price
Good product easy installation pretty pricey
I was quite happy with my original. It did a marvelous job of protecting the nose and lower area from damage until I was riding through a national or state forest in Mississippi. There was a rider and bike on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere so I stopped. Well the drop off at the side of the pavement was much more than usual and the nose dug in. Still, nothing on the front end plastic was badly hurt, the bump skid too the force well but a few pieces cracked and the bottom of the front trunk was broken. The repair cost would have been far worse without the bump skid plate. Oh, and it turns out the rider was out of fuel so I gave him a ride to the next gas station and continued on my ride. I eventually took the time to get all the repairs done but I could wait until I had time because the Bump Skid was there.
Easy to install. Impressed with the sturdiness of the product. It does lower the clearance somewhat to the already low clearance but has great protection qualities.
it took me longer prepping the spyder to to get ready than it did to mount it
Fast shipping, well packaged, and very easy to install. I used a rubber tube to create a seal between the Spyder body and the bumpskid to keep small debris from collecting there.
Had the Spyder on ramps for the sway bar install, so this one was easy. Nine holes drilled, clips installed, and on it went! Expected a little more of an up-curve on the front lip, will find a black, soft rubber "hose" to seal the gap along top/frunk.
Great fitting product and hardly noticeable. Easy to install..
Installation was a snap. I used car ramps and a floor jack to get enough clearance to drill. Took me about 45 minutes to install. Plastic covering looked pretty battered in places, but revealed no damage to actual material when removed. Packaging was good. Really like the coverage area underneath the bike and was glad to get rid of that flimsy skid plate that is stock. My only gripe, as it is with most motorcycle accessories, is that the price is too high. This should be a $100 part, not an almost $200 part in my opinion.
I The bumpskid arrived in just three business days. Everything was well packaged and the instructions were excellent. I took it down to D&K Service in Cottonwood, AZ. They put my Spyder on the lift and I was out the door in an hour. The service technician told me it was an easy install, everything lined up perfect and it looked like it was a quality upgrade.
