MachineartMoto X-Head BMW R1200GS / RT / RS / R Videos

MachineartMoto X-Head for Water Cooled BMW R1200GS / R1200GSA / R1200RT / R1200R / R1200RS

X-Head Cylinder Guards provide wide coverage in a tough, 5mm thick stylish shape that protects the vulnerable magnesium valve covers of R1200 hexhead engines.  When a bike is dropped, even at a standstill, a cylinder first hits the ground at its front corner, then rolls onto its face before settling back down on the lower edge. The wide coverage X-Head design protects both the valve and spark plug covers. Openings in the face are designed-in to provide air flow over the valve cover, while the molded-in texture at the bottom will help hide minor abrasion.

X-Heads are molded in a high temperature resistant nylon and installation takes five minutes - slightly longer on RT’s - with included stainless steel bolts. The bolt threads are coated with Nyloc thread locking patch to keep the bolts from loosening.

If your crash bars have had an impact, check that there is still a minimum of 15mm clearance between the crash bars and the X-Heads.

Sold in pairs.

Easy install and looks great. The manufacturer has detailed install videos that made installation a breeze. The covers look great on the bike. Yes these aren't the ultimate protection but they are exactly that little insurance you need to protect you against the infamous idiot drop! June 21, 2016
Nice Product with Easy Install Bolted right up to my 2014 1200GS Adventure. Mounted right underneath the stock crash bars. Look great and easy to install. The old aluminium ones I used previously bent and shoved right into the valve cover on the first tip over. They were so weak they were for looks only. These are durable and will withstand much more abuse. May 27, 2016
Quality protection I purchased this set to mitigate potential damage in a tip-over. The produce is well-made but a bit expensive for plastic and rubber. I cannot attest to the protection and I have no desire to find out. April 26, 2016
Very good fit. Have not droped the bike on them so not possitive about the protection but looks pretty good! Very good fit. After reviewing a video where the bike is dropped, it looked ok. Substantial rubber behind the cover will definitely help to cushion a fall. Hope I never have to test them. April 1, 2016
Default best protection for your BMW R series heads Have a '15 GS and didn't want to go the pipe route, but wanted head protection. These fit the bill - look good, fit good, priced reasonably. Would buy same from Revzilla again March 22, 2016
Perfect for the applicaton! Wanted something to protect the valve covers if the bike was dropped. The guards are not meant for crash protection but all I was looking for was drop protection and these fit the bill perfectly and look good too. February 9, 2016
Best Bang for the Buck The MachineartMoto X head covers are an easy 20 minute install and they look good as well. The nylon covers are well made and should do a good job in the event of a toppled bike or worse... February 2, 2016
Fit and finish perfect - Product fit great and imo looks great. I selected "average" only because I haven't tested the effectiveness of the product, (hopefully never will), but I did my research before purchasing and others have put it to the test. I am happy with my purchase. Less than half the price of full steel cage bars while keeping the profile width to a minimum.. November 16, 2015
