AltRider Lexan Headlight Guard for BMW R1200GS

When the sun goes down, the adventure is only beginning. Protect your headlight with the AltRider Lexan Headlight Guard for the BMW R 1200 GS so you can keep going without fear of rocks or debris ending your ride.

Bullet-proof Lexan plastic shields the vulnerable headlight, and its scratch-resistant face will keep your path clearly lit. The lens is held by sturdy stainless steel arms, which attach securely to the motorcycle frame using OEM hardware and are locked into position by the blinker stocks.

When it’s time to clean up, taking off the face is a cinch and can be done quickly and easily. With a counter-clockwise turn, the Dzus fasteners release – no tools necessary.  You don’t even need to worry about a pocket to put the fastener in, because it comes with a nylon retaining washer installed.  Gas stops become easy places to grab a window washer and wipe grime off your headlight.  

If you decide you want more of an off-road appearance, you can switch out the Lexan face with the AltRider stainless steel face (available separately).  Both fit with the AltRider Glare Guard, which is included with purchase of either headlight guard.

Save yourself hassle and frustration – and the purchase of a $450 headlight assembly – by using one or both of AltRider’s headlight guards.

Fitment Notes & Exceptions

NOTE: The AltRider Products are precision engineered for tight exacting tolerances meant to be installed on OEM / stock setups. If you have any aftermarket hardware on your bike which could affect the AltRider part install area or surrounding clearances, your AltRider product may not fit.

Note: Do not wash Lexan guard with any chemicals based cleaners (ex. alcohol, Windex, etc). Wash only with luke warm water and soap. Lexan is very strong but can break down over time when exposed to harsh chemicals.

I like the design and the functionality.
Altrider has a winner with this product. The fit and finish were great. The ability to remove the guard quickly is what sold me. If I have any reservations about the Lexan v. the wire mesh, it would involve heat from the headlight itself. As soon as I started the bike the headlight came on and the guard started to get warm. Only time will tell if this is a problem. Other than that, I'm sold. Installation was made much easier by removing the windshield from the bike prior to getting started. That's the only way to get to the (2) small screws that attach the glare guard. In my case, the windshield needed a good cleaning anyhow.

Outstanding quality
I am never reluctant to buy a product from ALT Rider. The quality is on par with my bike and both protects and enhances the appearance of my GS Adventure.

This headlight protector will absolutely get the job done!
This thing is perfect for the 1200GS. It is a simple install, is easily removed for cleaning, is well made out of durable materials, and it comes with the anti glare hood which is not only functional but it also looks pretty awesome.

There are a lot of much cheaper options out there to keep your headlight safe but not of this quality. Altrider makes good stuff and this is another example of that dedication to a very high standard.

Pain to install, but excellent protection
It's hard to equate any sort of "style" to a product that hangs out in front of your headlight to protect it from being smashed by rocks, but the Altrider guard at least looks the part on an adventure bike. Once the bracket is installed, the guard itself detaches easily for washing.

Installation was total pain. Not so much because of the guard itself, but because Altrider had to make use of existing attachment points to affix the glare guard to the bike. The mounting brackets bolted up quickly, but the screws that hold the glare guard on were very difficult to reach and remove/replace. I ended up using a ratchet with two flex joints and an extension! I recommend the parts, once installed, they should do the job nicely.

Style choice. Other headlight guards will work as well. Like the option to change to a metal guard later.
