T-Rex Racing have a skid plate they say fits the 2019.


Not sure if it's as strong as the RR plate.... but if it's price point is decent and it's better than nothing and I don't have to ship it from England I might give it a try..

Even with that door for the oil filter I can see it making a big ol' mess inside of that skid plate.

Nice to see other companies taking on the X anyway. Thanks for sharing.  :821:

Hmm, says on the YouTube comments it fits the '19. I think I'll wait for the Rally Raid version.

I would be very leery of that plate. It mounts similar to the SW Motec and the Motorrad Planet plate. Those are known to be very weak and fold when they get rubbed or hit.

Nice find! Great idea on them to consider the oil changes (horizontal mounted filters aren't bad, just let it drain longer and put a rag under to avoid a messy job)

Not even close to RR plate in strength but will work for me. I've been looking maximum frontal coverage. Still will keep my eye out for RR Version2 plate

Found this from T-REX. Looks like the Thai rear rack but will likely be aluminum. Large area to mount almost any type of topbox and keep the oem grab rails

Really? Can you point to some references re: this? I read nothing but positives about the SW Motech plate. (I've got one on order...)

Member McRat rubbed one against a stump and mangled his. There have been several reports on the CB500X thread on ADVrider. I can't chase those posts down right now but they are here and advrider.

same reply as the other forum

True but different skid plates for different types of riding.
What I'm looking for is protection from this, Fast Forward to 4:40 second mark
Protecting the front from being sandblasted from thousands of miles/kms of use

Right, OK, thanks. I found a few mentions now. I'm not too worried for my use (which is not that hardcore) I think the SW will suffice. I'm more looking for proctection against stones, and a bit more sturdy than the plastic OEM guard. I like the RR stuff but find them a bit pricey, and in this case didn't love how it leaves downpipes exposed. Also SW will fit with Givi crash bars which I already have.

A fender extender and almost any skid plate with a front lip will work for keeping the lower sump from debris hitting it. No one knows what will fit the 2019 model. They are just now going out to dealers. I don't know if any have hit North America yet. They are a good bit different than the pre '19 models.
