AltRider Clear Headlight Guard Kit for the BMW R 1200 GS /A (2003-2012)

When the sun goes down, the adventure is only beginning. Protect your headlight with the AltRider Lexan Headlight Guard for the BMW R 1200 GS so you can keep going without fear of rocks or debris ending your ride.

Bullet-proof Lexan plastic shields the vulnerable headlight, and its scratch-resistant face will keep your path clearly lit. The lens is held by sturdy stainless steel arms, which attach securely to the motorcycle frame using OEM hardware and are locked into position by the blinker stalks.

When it’s time to clean up, taking off the face is a cinch and can be done quickly and easily. With a counter-clockwise turn, the Dzus fasteners release – no tools necessary.  You don’t even need to worry about a pocket to put the fastener in, because it comes with a nylon retaining washer installed.  Gas stops become easy places to grab a window washer and wipe grime off your headlight.  

The best method is to soak in warm water to clean. Cleaning chemicals will degrade Polycarbonate (Lexan is the brand name).  Polycarbonate is the same material used for helmet lenses and as Bruce Porter (industry expert) from Arai says "Never spray any aerosol on you lenses".

If you decide you want more of an off-road appearance, you can swap out the Lexan for stainless steel, since both guards are interchangeable.  Both fit with the AltRider Glare Guard, which is included with purchase of either headlight guard.

Save yourself hassle and frustration – and the purchase of a $450 headlight assembly – by using one or both of AltRider’s headlight guards.

Compatible with the oil cooled BMW R 1200 GS/A (2003-2012).

NOTE: Polycarbonate will react to certain chemicals and requires specific care to clean correctly and keep looking good for the long haul. Cleaning improperly can result in scratches, hazing, surface crazing and cracking. See our blog post on proper cleaning of our polycarbonate headlight guards.

    Stress cracks in the plastic

    The design lacks the integrity to be recommended as a "must buy". After only about 1000 miles, 6 of the 8 holes in the plastic shield have cracked from the screws, which are of the sheet metal screw variety suited for plastic by blunting the tips. I have never seen an application where this type of screw was a good choice. The plastic is too thin and the holes are very close to the edge of the material. The concept is a good one, allowing for complete protection of the headlight lens as opposed to the metal mesh option. Unfortunately, the execution by the Altrider design team falls short. I going to try to salvage the assembly by using thru bolts with Nylock nuts.
