AltRider Crash Bars for the BMW R 1300 GS

be the first to review...

A new bike requires new protection, so AltRider has updated the crash bars for the new R 1300 GS model. The crash bars utilize 1.25 inch (31.75 mm) O.D. stainless steel tubing making them the largest diameter bars on the market. The decision to increase the diameter came from years of research and production results. The West Coast BMW Off-Road Training School has been outfitting their bikes with AltRider gear for the past several years. This real world testing yielded much insight on how much damage large bikes can do during crashes. 1 inch bars (25.4 mm) allow a significant amount of flex during a crash, creating the need to space them farther from the bike. The stout 1.25 inch (31.75 mm) bars allow a tighter profile while still providing real protection. Available in a bead-blasted stainless silver or black powder coat finish, they're extremely resistant to rust whether you’re riding the liquid cooled GS across the highway or across a river.

  • 1.25 inch (31.75 mm) stainless steel tubing
  • 5-axis laser cut and hand TIG welded joints
  • Custom machined M12 engine through-bolt heat treated and plated to Grade 8
  • Available in bead-blasted stainless silver or black powder coat finish
  • Bead-blasted stainless (silver) bars do not match the BMW electropolish silver upper bars
  • Combine with the AltRider Cylinder Head Guards for complete cylinder head protection

The top of the bars are secured in a total of three locations per side. The front mount is the only one on the market designed to utilize two bolts per side to increase the ability to distribute the load of any impact. The rear is held with a custom machined through-bolt that replaces the engine mount hardware -- increasing strength of the bars up to 25%. AltRider offers one of only a few designs that utilize a custom machined through-bolt. There are no plastic spacers to break upon impact. This creates an incredibly strong design that distributes any impact evenly throughout the bars, and also makes a solid foundation for upper crash bars.

Other bars are fabricated by crimping then welding joints, creating a forced fit with a weak bond. In this method, gaps are created which are later filled with weld. The additional heat causes warpage and all-too-common installation difficulties. All AltRider joints are 5-axis laser cut, creating a perfect union before the bars are hand TIG welded in a jig. This process creates a precision fit, easy installation and superior strength. Using only the best manufacturing techniques means all AtlRider motorcycle accessories are of the highest quality, ensuring the best protection for your adventure bike.

Installation is simple and straightforward. All necessary hardware is provided with the bars.

Combine with the AltRider Cylinder Head Guards for complete cylinder head protection that crash bars alone cannot provide.

  • Compatible with the BMW R 1300 GS
