Outback Motortek Honda CRF300L Skid Plate Review

Canadian/Hungarian brand, Outback Motortek were our go to for all things protection when preparing our Honda CRF300Ls for our round the world trip.

So, we went for the Outback Motortek crash bars and skid plate to protect the vulnerable radiator and belly on our 300s.

The two can be fitted independently of one another, but if used together will need to be attached to each other. So, if you are after both crash bars and a skid plate, it’s worth buying both from the same company.

And we’d recommend Outback Motortek for that. The skid plate looks and feels solid and bullet proof.

It weighs in at 1.6kg and is made using 4mm thick laser cut aluminium. It’s a simple yet effective piece of equipment and a must have accessory for the Honda CRF300L.
