MachineartMoto X-Head DOHC Engine Guard for BMW R1200 / R1200GS / R nineT

X-Head DOHC covers 80% of the face of the cylinder head to protect not only the bottom initial impact area in a drop, but also the upper part of the cylinder head. Even in a driveway drop, the inertia of a fall may cause a bike to roll briefly onto the face of the cylinder before it settles down on its bottom edge. X-Heads cover more area than OEM and other aftermarket head guards.

X-Head DOHC are molded in a DuPont "SuperTough" nylon selected for its blend of high-impact strength, temperature and UV stabilization. The injection molded shell is designed to give slightly in the event of an impact to prevent breakage. Between it and the cylinder head is a 7mm thick thermoplastic rubber liner that aids in dissipating impact force while preventing hard contact with the cylinder.

Each side mounts via the included 3 stainless steel fasteners coated with Nyloc thread locking compound to assure a tight installation.

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.

Look good, easy install, but fragile These are for protecting your valve covers if the bike happens to fall over while not moving. I did a 20 mph low side and the bike flipped over when it hit the shoulder. Both x heads were completely trashed as well as the valve covers. They both completely shattered into small pieces. As fragile as they are they would probably break if you bike just falls over but your valve covers might be ok. March 3, 2016
The best option Fits perfectly, looks awesome and you protect your bike, fits in a r ninet 1200!! January 8, 2016
Super easy to install Installed on my 2012 BMW GS 1200, installed in a just a few minutes.... take out 3 bolts, screw in 3 bolts, then torque them to 7lbs. Fit perfectly. I don't know about durability, but it seems to be a very high quality device. Would highly recommend to anyone. September 21, 2015
easy to install and looks great fast delivery easy to install and great finish. looks awsome July 29, 2015
Looks good and protects I have a 2010 R1200RT, put these on to help protect the heads, they were easy to install, I have ridden with them on and don't see any increase in heat from the engine. May 25, 2015
Save Those Expensive BMW Valve Covers Much less expensive than BMW, Wunderlich, and other German manufacturers of these products. Highly recommend purchasing and especially from Revzilla because of discounts. March 2, 2015
A bit of an installation product I bought these for my 2011 R 1200 RT and the guards fit extremely well and don't detract from the bikes look at all (IMO). It is a bit of an installation project, since all the tupperware needs to come off on both sides, but here is a link that gives you a step by step process that made it easy. http://youtu.be/2UHU4ZQ2C_Q Hope that helps.

Money well spent for added peace of mind. I was worried that they'd be flimsy or cheap in appearance, but the reviews I've read are spot on. They seamlessly tie into the styling of the boxer engine and are much better looking than other cylinder covers I've seen. Installation takes a little elbow grease to align all the holes properly.
