AltRider Potentiometer Guard BMW R1200GS 2005-2012 Videos

AltRider Potentiometer Guard for BMW R1200GS

Made from 3.175 mm anodized aluminum, the potentiometer guard has three mounting positions to anchor it in place. The unique third (bottom) mounting position creates a firm hold on the throttle body, which means the guard won’t ever shift or snap off.

The AltRider Potentiometer Guard provides strong protection, sleek profile and no interference with leg position.

  • Anodized aluminum construction
  • 3 mount points for superior strength
  • Includes Loctite (except on international orders)
  • Height: 1 inch
  • Width: 4 inches
  • Depth: 4 inches
  • Weight: 0.17 lbs

Great protection
I bought this because of the 3 mounting points vs the competitors two. The fit was very good, it is very solid, and I think that it provides superior protection for the TPS. I rated it lower in the comfort because I do occasionally hit my shin on the guard, but if it was any smaller it would not adequately protect the TPS.

Excellent protection for Potentiometer
Altrider Poentiometer guard for the Bmw R1200 GSA is a well made, easy to install guard that is well worth the money especially if you take your machine offroad.

Excellent protection for a critical GS component
The Altrider Potentiometer guard looks pretty slick, conforms well to the styling of the R1200 series bikes, and gives excellent protection to the throttle position sensor. I occasionally bump it with my boot, but was probably doing that to the TPS, prior to installing the guard. Installation is a five minute job, with clear directions provided.

Excellent
I never realized how much/often my leg hit or came close to my potentiometer untill i installed this and felt it hitting my boots/shin. I chose the over the touratech one due to the fact the put the extra thought in an use a metal brace/spacer instead of plastic for the standoff giving it more strength.

Necessary protection...
I picked up the guard after loosing a day's riding helping a friend get his GS home following a gravel road tip-over that busted his potentiometer.

Simple 10 minute install. The usual Altrider quality fit and finish. And, the peace of mind knowing that an easily broken "dead-stop" part is now well protected.

A good purchase that I highly recommend.

AltRider BMW R1200GS Potentiometer Guard
Very well designed, perfect fit. Does exactly what it needs to do and looks good as well.

Being in OZ the freight charges were quite high for a small item such as this but otherwise very happy

Hopefully will never need it...but economic and looks great
For the price, I can't see why you wouldn't want this kind of essential protection. Well fabricated and the finish is flawless...only a 10 minute or less install too so no lost ride time.

Does it come as a left and right sided one?
A S on Nov 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: On my BMW 2011 GS it mounts on the left side. Never saw one mounted on the right.
