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.

Awesome product. Fits great. Looks great. Super easy to install. Definitely provides enough protection to give peace of mind that the head covers will be safe in the event of a drop. August 16, 2016
It adds the needed protection the covers look and fit perfectly. They add some protection and look amazing, May 25, 2016
Revzilla is great, but I've had difficulties with Machineart Moto The customer service from Machineart Moto is terrible. If you have a problem, Machineart Moto will look for ways to make it difficult to return products. If you buy a Machineart Moto product, make SURE you buy it through Revzilla so that you can leverage Revzilla's buying power with their vendor if you do have a problem. I have learned the hard way to buy through Revzilla, and NEVER through a small company like Machineart Moto. You will have no leverage if you buy direct. I've NEVER had a single issue with Revzilla, but my experience with buying direct from Machineart Moto was horrid -- they mailed to the wrong address (they billed me correct, but made a shipping label error), it cost me $20 to return the product, and then refused to fully refund a product that did not fit when their website said it would fit. I think Machineart Moto tries to cut out Revzilla on newer products and go direct. Always WAIT and buy from Revzilla! May 12, 2016
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
