AltRider Crash Bars BMW F800GS

Rough terrain can get the better of anyone, which is why AltRider designed the Crash Bars for the BMW F 800 GS. Made from one inch stainless steel, it is sure to protect your engine in a fall.

These crash bars provide extensive coverage for the F 800 GS, guarding not only the engine itself but also the radiator and front plastics.

The bars are built with precision-manufactured mounts that fit directly into the existing motor mount, creating a robust connection that is secured with existing OEM fasteners on the top engine mounts. Fasteners are provided for the bottom mounts.

Unlike other crash bars, these do not use flanges or weak tabs and are not hung: they are actually mounted. Crafted with hand TIG welding, these black powder-coated stainless bars will hold up in spills and never even show signs of rust.

Protect your clutch cover, radiator, and front fairings with the system that doesn’t deflect or bend.

  • Stainless T-304 construction
  • Hand TIG welding
  • 1 inch diameter tubing for strength
  • Comes with the fasteners needed for the bottom mounts
  • Height: 13 inches
  • Width: 20 inches
  • Depth: 13 inches
  • Weight: 10 lbs

Note: Your t50 socket must be able to fit inside a 0.7” ID tube 1” deep. All ½” drive sockets will be too big to fit, as will some 3/8” drive sockets. An L-handle T-50 key is the easiest solution.

Good but tricky to install The crash bars look good and the finish seems professional. I can't say I "tested" them (knocking wood) but they seem strong enough. The torque of the bolts hasn't changed after 1000 miles neither. Word of caution: the T50 torx it needs for installation needs to be *very* *long*. I couldn't find anything in hardware shops nearby (and I live in a major city), so I had to order that piece in Amazon. We aware of this when buying, otherwise you'll have to wait some extra days for installation. Also, something not included in the manual: the torque for the main upper bolt is 40NM, and the lower ones 19NM. You'll need a very good and L shaped torque wrench too. January 24, 2015
Excellent, top-quality crash bars I purchased these crash bars for my F800GS to replace the puny OEM BMW crash bars. 2 of my friends have the SW Motech bars, which are less expensive. What ultimately sold me on the AltRider bars: - Aesthetics - they look great - Protection - these bars come up fairly high and protect the upper plastics/radiator well - Solid, stainless steel construction - the bars insert into the frame and use the existing engine mount bolts - Install videos are excellent - US-made is a bonus Installation was cake - it took me 20 minutes. As for the color, I opted for the black, even though they make a gray that matches the 2012 triple black frame color. I felt like the gray would stand out more. November 26, 2014
Great product It fits great my F800GS 2013. Covers the engine and plastic and was easy to install. Hasn't need it yet but feels very strong. The bolts should be hex to match the rest of the cycle bolts but they are ok. September 29, 2014
Great product These fit on nicely, installation was quick and should protect well in the event of a tip over. The only negative was where the front bars came together, as the spacer would rattle and make an annoying sound. I ran a piece of electrical tape around the space and it stopped the rattle, problem solved. Great product, would recommend to others. July 5, 2014
First Review Okay so I have not dropped the bike so I can not rate them higher than good for now on performance , durability and bang for the buck. Installed super easy, way to go ALT RIDER folks. Do as the instructions say and keep everything loose till you get all bolts in and no problem. Socket length T50 wont fit in the BMW GS800 side hole. Get one before your bars show up...get a T handle one!! June 16, 2014
Every bit as nice as I expected I looked at 9 different crash bars for my F800GS, ranging in price from $160 to $470. At $376, these weren't the most expensive, but were close to it. I was very tempted to get the cheapest, but there was something about the AltRider bars that really appealed to me. Aside from the use of stainless steel, I like the design of the mount points, and the way the joint between the left and right halves is practically invisible. I also like how simple yet effective the shape is, with a minimal amount of weld joints and bends. My only disappointment was that the bolts provided for the lower mount points were not Torx-head bolts to match all of the other fasteners used by BMW on this bike. AltRider's web site (and most vendor's web sites) states that "Torx fasteners are provided for the bottom mounts." When I called AltRider about this issue, they said that non-stainless Torx fasteners were supplied in the past, but they later decided to provide stainless steel hex cap screws instead. AltRider has yet to correct their web site regarding these fasteners, but RevZilla did so after I brought it to their attention. I haven't had to "use" these crash bars yet, but I fully expect them to do their job. In the meantime, they are a perfect fit, both visually and physically. May 26, 2014
If you ride enough, you will eventually either buy crash bars or buy replacement parts I put these on my F800GS. I've used a couple other brands of crash bars and while I didn't DISlike them, I like these much better. Super easy install, good looking, and sturdy. December 9, 2013
Fits perfect to my F800GS Easy to install and look like original part because they fit perfect to my F800GS. I really recomend this product!!! November 25, 2013

john g: That I have no idea but its a flat black paint that can take a beating. I've had my bike on its side three times on dirt roads and they get scratched up but the paint stays on. I'm happy with them and would recommend them they are solidly built and easy to put on. Aug 14, 2013

Bruce P: The triple black coating appears to be powder coating or a baked epoxy. Very tough coating. I've dropped the bike a couple times and while the coating has gouged through to metal, it isn't peeling or flaking at the edges. Very satisfied with the bars. Aug 14, 2013
