AltRider Crash Bars for 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.

Features:

  • 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.

Approximately 15 minutes install. Perfect fit on my 2011 F800GS. These bars look like they came with the bike from BMW.

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.

Excellent coverage
I've dropped the bike a number of times on these bars in both dirt and rocks. They cover the engine perfectly and also do a great job of protecting the plastics due to their design. These are well enough designed I'm not sure that the upper crash bar is even necessary but I put it on as well.

Installation can be done by a single person but it goes a zillion times easier with a friend.

Excellent Bike Protection!
Things I liked the most about AltRider crash bars were the fit and finish. Has that "Factory Look", but covers twice the area. The install was a piece of cake as well. I was a little worried because I read a couple of reviews that said the bolt holes on the bars were off by 1/2 inch or more on one side. Simply not true, I can see how if the installer does not follow the provided instructions and starts torqueing things down prior to getting the bars aligned this could be the out come but if installed as directed an individual with the simplest mechanical skills should have no problem. I didn't give AltRider 5 stars on cost of the bars because I thought it was a little pricy. Also knocked them down on performance because I haven't ops checked the bars for function yet and I hate giving anyone an "Excellent" rating without knowing for sure, but looking at the quality of the TIG welds and feeling the weight of the bars themselves is reassuring that they will perform as advertised. I would purchase them again without hesitation and would recommend these to friends.

Made in the USA quality!
The bars fit perfectly. I bought the bare stainless so there are no scratches to touch up. They are very stout and give good coverage for the plastics and radiator. I've only dropped the bike once on them and it was a soft drop, but not a scratch on the bike. Pleased with the product.

Good protection
I rode with these crash bars on my 2013 F800GS on the Olympic Peninsula in horrible muddy,nasty conditions and went down 2 times. The crash bars got scratched but never moved a bit. They protected everything they were supposed to.

I dropped my bike
Do you remember how you took your kickstand off your BMX bike and would lay it down? I feel like I could do this continually with these bars. I dropped my bike and these bars did their job. They are extremely easy to install and look great. You won't be disappointed when you buy these.

The bars fit perfectly, and look like they belong on the bike.
Quality material, and nice welds. Everything fit perfectly, and all needed hardware was included. Instructions were easy to follow. My only complaint, is that it would have been nice if they had included torque specs for the fasters, the two motor mounts in particular. Great product over all. I did not rate performance or durability, as I have yet to drop the bike!

I had this on my previous F800GS and it fit perfectly. I rode across Africa for 33 days with it and wouldn't use any other product. My buddy had the TouraTech version and he wishes he had mine.

I chose the AltRider crash bars for my 800GS because I ride my GS like it should be...hard! I knew I would put it on its side at some point so this is one of the first and most important things I did. The AltRider crash bars work, and keep working!

Mounts to same bolt holes as does the factory BMW crash bar but provides greater engine + bike protection and all brackets are TIG welded, very clean!

Did some extensive researching and talking to others and these are the crash bars that got the best overall reviews.

What EXACTLY is the "triple black" finish? Powder coat, anodized, or something else? Thanks.
A shopper on Aug 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does this fit the new F800 GS ADVENTURE?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: These crash bars will NOT fit the ADVENTURE model as it has a significantly wider front than the standard GS. GREAT bars though!
Hi, will this fit on a Husqvarna nuda 900? I've read on some forums, that they can use F800GS's crash bars, is that true?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry. I don't know if the bars will fit the Husqvarna. Mine fit the 800 GS perfectly.
For a 2013 BMW F700GS......Is this be compatible with a Touratech Expedition skid plate? Has anyone mounter highway pegs on them?
