AltRider Upper Crash Bars for the BMW R 1200 GS Water Cooled

The BMW R 1200 GSW is the latest evolution of the iconic adventure bike. Built to travel the world on the road and off, the hefty bike is bound to have a tip over sooner or later. Protect your upper fairings and radiator from adventure-ending damage with upper crash bars from AltRider. 

The upper crash bars use specially designed aluminum fastening blocks to mount to the AltRider lower crash bars to provide a robust base. A 3rd mounting point underneath the front beak of the motorcycle ensures the upper crash bars can take the toughest of hits while providing complete protection for your upper fairings and radiator. The upper crash bars are mandrel bent from 1 inch (25.4 mm) stainless steel tubing and are available in a shot peen satin, black powder coat, triple black (grey) powder coat and for 2017 a blue powder coat finish.

AltRider upper crash bars utilize the same mounting location as the BMW auxiliary LED's. To mount the auxiliary lights with the AltRider upper crash bars, see the AltRider OEM Light Mount Kit for 2013-2016 models or the AltRider OEM Light Mount Brackets for 2017 and newer models.

To see the AltRider crash bars in action, check out our blog: AltRider Crash Test Part 1 and Part 2

    Great Product

    Purchased these upper bars at the same time as the lowers and was really happy with how well they are designed and constructed. The installation was simple and all the mounting points lined up as advertised. One note, however, is that where the instructions called for simply loosening some of the body plastic so it could be “gently” pulled back to reveal the beak bolts, I ended up just taking the plastic off completely because I was afraid too much strain would be required to expose those bolts, which might have ended up causing damage to the plastics. Probably only added an extra 30 minutes of work overall, but I didn’t have to fret about over stressing the plastic and causing damage that would have been expensive to fix. Great product and worth all the money spent!

    Upper bars that work - period

    Same type of tolerances and workmanship on this as the other protection arts for the r1200GS LC. They are also prime real-estate for mounting fog lights - right under the beak is perfect. The installation is very involved but follow the directions and you will be fine. Its also a great chance to learn whats under the plastic of your bike. ONE thing to take notice- if you are reinstall the headlight protection- do this BEFORE you instal these bars. You will need to be extremely creative if done the other way. When installing the top bars, this is also a great opportunity to run wires for fog lights from the battery.
