AltRider Crash Bar and Skid Plate System for the BMW R 1300 GS

be the first to review...

Save by ordering the Crash Bars and Skid Plate for the water cooled R 1300 GS as a kit instead of separate pieces.

The AltRider Crash Bars are the only 1.25 inch (31.75 mm) crash bar system on the market. The larger 1.25 inch bars are over twice as strong as 1 inch bars while only adding 10% more weight.

Our crash bars have four secure mounting points on both sides with 3/16 inch (4.76mm) thick flanges. The top rear mount is secured large custom machined M14, grade 8.8 bolt that replaces the engine mounting hardware. AltRider offers the only custom machined through-bolt for increased strength. There are no plastic spacers or bumpers to break upon impact. This creates an incredibly strong connection while maintaining a narrow design that distributes any impact evenly throughout the bars. Learn more about the AltRider Crash Bars for the R 1300 GS

  • 25 inch (31.75 mm) stainless steel tubing
  • 5-axis laser cut and hand TIG welded joints
  • Custom machined M14 engine through-bolt heat treated and plated to Grade 8.8
  • Available in bead-blasted stainless silver or black powder coat finish

The sophistication of the BMW R1300 GS pushed the envelope in terms of innovation. AltRider has once again risen to the challenge by developing the industry’s first skid plate with an Energy Absorption System (EAS). The unique EAS dynamically absorbs the kinetic energy generated during impact in order to  offer unrivaled protection to the engine.

The skid plate is mounted in the four corners with the midspan having three distinct zones of the Energy Absorption System. The primary function of the EAS is to absorb the kinetic energy created during an impact. Learn more about the AltRider Skid Plate and our unique Energy Absorption System.

  • Exclusive Energy Absorption System engineered to absorb impacts and dissipate the energy
  • Only millimeters away from the lowest point of the bike offering the best ground clearance
  • The dual material rear mount design of the skid plate attaches directly to the subframe providing a more robust structure
  • 5/32 inch (4.0 mm) hand TIG welded anodized aluminum
  • The skid plate covers and protects the headers and the catalytic converter
  • Oil change does not require removal of skid plate
  • Compatible with R 1300 GS
