Yamaha have developed a number of black anodized aluminium parts to help protect the Worldcrosser’s chassis components in the most extreme off road environments. The specially-designed drive shaft shield gives added protection to the shaft housing and rear hub when riding in rocky or rutted terrain.

Skid plate

In addition to the many other protectors fitted to the Worldcrosser, this tough adventure bike is also equipped with a rugged aluminium skid plate. Its durable design helps to protect the crankcases and header pipes from rocks, stumps and debris, and also acts as a glide plate if you bottom out on uneven terrain.

Rear brake protector

When you’re a long way from home it’s good to know that Yamaha’s designers have fitted the best possible protection systems to help prevent accidental damage to your Worldcrosser.

Sticker kit
