AltRider Engine Protection Bars for the BMW K 1600 GT / GTL

The BMW K 1600 GT / GTL is a beast of a bike that requires hefty support to stand up to its size. Weighing in at just less than 800 pounds, AltRider’s in-house design team took a careful analysis of the center of gravity and the ability to distribute the robust load on impact. In the case of an accidental tip-over, the cross bar distributes the load  from one side to the other, relieving pressure from the existing mounting points to the other side of the bike. The connector bar adds significant strength to the design, effectively connecting into the threaded and blind boss on each side which provides 2 more locations for distributing impact. The engine protection bars are available in shot peen silver or powdercoat black.

The assembly for these engine protection bars is moved out 1.75” and up 2” from the original OEM design. Two reasons for this unique design change:

1. This design provides a higher resting angle when the bike is on its side, allowing a rider to pick the bike up after it falls on its side. Unlike boxer motors, the K1600 will lie almost flat making it difficult to even pick up the bike. The higher point of the bar will stop the bike from rolling over further, making it manageable for a single operator to upright the bike. This will minimize the damage to the upper fairings, windshield, mirrors, and handlebars.

2. The current OEM engine bars are placed very low on the frame and become a pivot point causing a falling bike to continue to topple over onto the upper fairings. Our design halts this problem with the enlargement of the AltRider bars, preventing the bike from rolling over further in any crash or stationary drop.

AltRider Engine Protection Bars will keep your K 1600 in top performance shape while providing the much needed coverage in the case of spills and stationary drops.

  • Compatible with 2013-2016 GTL integrated fairing lights (if the bike has integrated fairing lights chose the "2013-current' bars from the dropdown options, if the bike uses the OEM 'light bar' for the fairing lights chose the "2011-2012" bars from the dropdown options).
  • Not compatible with 2017+ bikes.
  • Stunning shot peen silver or powdercoat black finish
  • Precision manufactured mounts  bolts up effortlessly
  • Hand TIG welded, yielding extra strength
  • Quality stainless construction resists rust or oxidation
  • 1 inch stainless steel tubing
  • Manufactured in the USA

    2013 gt1600

    Great bars, during a 4300 mile trip thru Utah,wyoming, colorado and montana. Backing out of a gas station at a difficult wet angle I dropped the bike. Only damage was scratches on the left bar, bike was fully loaded not one scratch, except for my pride the bike was fine as advertised. Thank you Altrider !

    Great bars!

    I have a 2013 K1600GT with the newer mounts for the LED driving lights (the winged covered ones)So be sure and order the ones without the mounts for the lights! (note to ALT Riders you need to make the info on these bars more clear...I was lucky and stumbled upon the right bars (ones without the driving light mounting tabs)and changed my order. Plus some people wont want these bars with the mounting tabs if the have the newer LED mounts and will miss out on some great bars because they don't realize you have the ones without the tabs. At 6'1" and coming from the cruiser world the riding position was a difficult adjustment for me. These bars position the added peg in the perfect position for me to stretch my legs out. The angle is perfect. I would have given a 5 but one of the bolts was defective (no hole for the wrench) so I had to use the shorter stock M8. I highly recommend these Bars. I purchased my foot pegs somewhere else.
