AltRider Crash Bars BMW R1200GS

The BMW motor is powerful yet wide, and you want to protect every inch. Wrap that 1200cc gem with our 1 inch stainless crash bars. AltRider set the bar high on this product. Durable and well engineered, the AltRider crash bars are built with precision-manufactured mounts that fit directly into the existing motor mount. Also, integrates well with the AltRider Upper Crash Bars (sold separately), for even more crash coverage.

By utilizing the R 1200 GS’s robust frame mount and incorporating the existing frame hardware, AltRider designed a quality piece that will protect your motor.  Unlike other crash bars, these do not use flanges or weak tabs and are not hung: they are actually mounted. Made with a shot peen satin finish means that even when the bike takes a spill, the stainless bars will never show signs of rust.

These crash bars deflect the impact from the cylinders and engine case to the strongest parts of the frame. Unlike other manufacturers, our design provides plenty of clearance around the vulnerable left oil line. It also serves double-duty as a boot rest on long rides!

Save yourself hassle and frustration – and the purchase of a $200 valve cover – by installing AltRider crash bars.

Take a moment to review the instructions. The reason we mention this here is to make you aware which mount points on the R 1200 GS have strength.

  • Stainless construction fights corrosion and rust
  • Hand TIG welded crash bars are 1 inch diameter for additional strength
  • Manufactured in America
  • Refined satin peen finish
  • Comes with the Torx bit needed for installation
  • Removal required for valve adjustment

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Houck c/o M: Based on reviews and the color option. Jun 15, 2015
Steven W: Great reviews and great product. Why did I buy this product from Revzilla? Because I trust Revzilla. Fair prices, free shipping and I believe Revzilla wants to educate their buyers, help us make an educated buying decision. May 11, 2015
Garrett G: I watched the video reviews and compared the AltRider bars to Touratech bars fellow riders have. These are more expensive but I believe they are made better and are designed to be stronger, not that I plan on dropping my bike. Nov 24, 2014
Randy V: Since the OEM crash bars on my 2009 BMW R1200GS Adv. are, for the most part, decoration I wanted a crash bar system that would allow me to use my bike as it was intended. The AltRider crash bar system impressed me when I saw it at the 2014 MOA Rally. I'm confident that I'll finally get the protection I've been needing since the machine was new. Thanks Revzilla & AltRider. Oct 30, 2014
David Y: Best protection for a crash. Cons of AltRider: must remove before valve lash inspection. The time taken to remove the crash bars is worth it for the protection. HB crash bars tweek after a couple crashes. TT bars don't cover the entire cylinder head. Any protection is better than the stock crash bars. Mar 5, 2014
WILLIAM T: like the build made in usa altrider service is very good Mar 4, 2014
Alan M: After extensive research I determined the Altrider crash bars made the most sense for GS protection. Feb 23, 2014
Trevor F: A high quality crash bar which also fits with the OEM aluminium cylinder head protectors already fitted to my bike. Jan 27, 2014
A shopper asked: Will the alt rider crash bars fit a 2012 GS? The specs only list 2005-10 Jan 5, 2012

OldManRick: The specs on the AltRider website have been updated to "Fits 2005-2011"

Unless there are undocumented changes in the 2012 BMW R 1200 GS, the crash bars should fit.

[And whoever heard of Germans not documenting changes?]

A shopper asked: I want to purchase the 1200GS crash bars in silver. Some of your photos show the older style Altrider bars for this bike while others show the latest style with the beefed-up lower mounting points on a single 1/4" thick plate. Can you guarantee that I will receive the latest style bars if I purchase in silver or triple-black? Nov 2, 2013

A shopper asked: Will you be carrying the full catalog of AltRider gear for the new XT1200Z Super Tenere? I just picked mine up and need to outfit it and would prefer to buy from Revzilla as you are local to me.

Thanks!
