AltRider Crash Bars for the BMW R 1200 GS (2003-2012) - Silver

The BMW R1200GS has a powerful yet wide motor, and you want to protect every inch. Wrap that 1200cc gem with our 1 inch stainless crash bars. AltRider set the bar high on this product. Durable and well engineered, the AltRider crash bars are built with precision-manufactured mounts that fit directly into the existing motor mount.

By utilizing the R 1200 GS’s robust frame mount and incorporating the existing frame hardware, AltRider designed a quality piece that will protect your motor.  Unlike other crash bars, these do not use flanges or weak tabs and are not hung: they are actually mounted. Made with a shot peen satin finish means that even when the bike takes a spill, the stainless bars will are still incredibly resistant to rust.

These crash bars deflect the impact from the cylinders and engine case to the strongest parts of the frame. Unlike other manufacturers, our design provides plenty of clearance around the vulnerable left oil line. It also serves double-duty as a boot rest on long rides!

Save yourself hassle and frustration – and the purchase of a $200 valve cover – by installing AltRider crash bars.

An advantage to the AltRider design is the comprehensive protection provided to the valve cover.  This is especially important on 2010 and newer models because contact to the valve cover can cause the gasket to dislodge resulting in massive oil loss.

Take a moment to review the instructions. The reason we mention this here is to make you aware which mount points on the R 1200 GS have strength.

You may also want to watch the installation video (click the thumbnail to the right). You’ll see everything that comes with your purchase, the tools you’ll need to complete the installation, and tips and tricks to make the process easier.

*Works with 2008 and newer GSA but does touch bottom of tank on right side (see photo).

    Altrider Crash Bars for BMW R1200 GS

    After a recent rainy night slide through a construction zone, I decided that crash bars might be a prudent addition to my 2008 GS Standard. Although my right side valve cover was not ground completely through and I was able to ride on home, the whole episode gave me a taste of what it might be like to end up stranded on the side of the road with oil all over the place! And so I began the web search that led me to AltRider. At first glance, their bars looked good. I thought the bend angles of the bars tied in well with the lines of the bike. They also looked "meatier" than other bars I had viewed and the AltRider mounting system promised to be robust. I liked the idea of the shot-peened finish on the stainless steel and I especially appreciated the on-line installation video with its references to fabrication and fit. And so the order was placed. All arrived with no issues. The bars looked great in the box; I called up a friend; set my laptop up in the garage; popped in my BMW Repair Manual disc and opened the on-line AltRider installation video. The bottom line; installation was a breeze, the fit was bang on, the bars look fantastic and AltRider has gained one very satisfied customer! Reg LeBlanc Quesnel, BC Canada
