AltRider Crash Bars for BMW F800GS

Rough terrain can get the better of anyone, which is why AltRider designed the Crash Bars for the BMW F 800 GS. Made from one inch stainless steel, it is sure to protect your engine in a fall.

These crash bars provide extensive coverage for the F 800 GS, guarding not only the engine itself but also the radiator and front plastics.

The bars are built with precision-manufactured mounts that fit directly into the existing motor mount, creating a robust connection that is secured with existing OEM fasteners on the top engine mounts. Fasteners are provided for the bottom mounts.

Unlike other crash bars, these do not use flanges or weak tabs and are not hung: they are actually mounted. Crafted with hand TIG welding, these black powder-coated stainless bars will hold up in spills and never even show signs of rust.

Protect your clutch cover, radiator, and front fairings with the system that doesn’t deflect or bend.

Features:

  • Stainless T-304 construction
  • Hand TIG welding
  • 1 inch diameter tubing for strength
  • Comes with the fasteners needed for the bottom mounts
  • Height: 13 inches
  • Width: 20 inches
  • Depth: 13 inches
  • Weight: 10 lbs

Note: Your T50 socket must be able to fit inside a 0.7” ID tube 1” deep. All ½” drive sockets will be too big to fit, as will some 3/8” drive sockets. An L-handle T-50 key is the easiest solution.

Rock the Crash Bar
Altrider makes top quality products, the finish is a very strong powder coat (Black) and fit is right on. I got the upper bar as well for full coverage of my plastics.Took all of 5 mins to install these. Get some locktite as it does not come in the packaging of this item.

Solo Install
I did the install by ny self and it took 40 minutes with no problems. I like the directions from Alt Rider and like that Alt Rider is in Washington State.
I have luckily not had to use them but I am sure they would work as designed. I took my bike off road and down a muddy path and due to my confidence in the protection the crash bars would provide if needed, I had a great ride and am still am everytime I go OR.

Put to the Test
I installed the AltRider crash bars on my 2015 F800GS. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bars look fantastic, are rock solid and are very easy to install.

To the point - while sitting in the 7th circle of hell (otherwise known as the DMV) waiting to get my endorsement, a kind gentleman informed me that someone had backed into my bike the parking lot and knocked it over...

After taking 10 deep breaths to prevent myself from doing something that would likely keep me from ever riding by bike (or seeing my children) again, I ventured into the parking lot to find my bike (which was originally left propped on the center stand by me) sitting upright on the kickstand. Turns out, the lovely a%#hole had knocked the bike straight off of the center stand into a freefall directly on the right side of the bike (at least they were kind enough to pick it up?)...

The only damage was some minor scratching on the passenger footpeg, the crash bars (paint) and the bracket arm of my handguards. The force of the impact of the bike falling unimpeded directly onto the crash bars (and the Caribou side case on the rear of the bike) bent the entire crash bar rig by about 1.5". Meaning, after the fall, the gap between the crash bar and the fairing on the right side of the bike (the impact side) was about 1", and the gap on the left side was about 3.5".

Long story short, the bars did their job perfectly - there was absolutely NO damage to the fairing; not a scratch. Unfortunately (rightly or wrongly), I am not comfortable trying to bend the bars back to their original state, as I am afraid the overall structural integrity has been compromised.

As such, I have replaced them, but not because of any "flaw" in the bars themselves. Highly recommended, and real world proof of their performance.

Lovely design. Really worth the money if you want something that has awesome weld quality. Got mine in triple black (gray) and it goes nicely with the gray frame on my 2016.

Approximately 15 minutes install. Perfect fit on my 2011 F800GS. These bars look like they came with the bike from BMW.

Expensive but....nice
Fit was perfect on my GS800. Easy to install if you follow the directions and don't tighten anything until the end. Look great and I feel much better having them. My only complaint is they are expensive but....Buying the bike is just the down payment and if it gets scratched up your not going to be happy. They look great! fast shipping I would do it again

AltRider Crash Bars
Traded in my VStrom for the F800GS and I knew I'd be pushing my skillset, and maybe my luck - so I wanted one of the best guards out there. You get what you pay for and the AltRider crash bar is worth the peace of mind. Fitment was spot on, darn little push & shove and installed in mere minutes. Spent more time reading the instructions and getting evertything lined up. Real nice fit and finish. One slo-mo lean over on single trak - not a mark on the bike. Yes, I recommend this product.

Excellent, top-quality crash bars
I purchased these crash bars for my F800GS to replace the puny OEM BMW crash bars.

2 of my friends have the SW Motech bars, which are less expensive. What ultimately sold me on the AltRider bars:

- Aesthetics - they look great
- Protection - these bars come up fairly high and protect the upper plastics/radiator well
- Solid, stainless steel construction - the bars insert into the frame and use the existing engine mount bolts
- Install videos are excellent
- US-made is a bonus

Installation was cake - it took me 20 minutes. As for the color, I opted for the black, even though they make a gray that matches the 2012 triple black frame color. I felt like the gray would stand out more.

I had this on my previous F800GS and it fit perfectly. I rode across Africa for 33 days with it and wouldn't use any other product. My buddy had the TouraTech version and he wishes he had mine.

Best crash bars around light strong and beautifully made
Stuart D on Jun 29, 2016
I chose the AltRider crash bars for my 800GS because I ride my GS like it should be...hard! I knew I would put it on its side at some point so this is one of the first and most important things I did. The AltRider crash bars work, and keep working!

Mounts to same bolt holes as does the factory BMW crash bar but provides greater engine + bike protection and all brackets are TIG welded, very clean!
Rob R on Dec 24, 2013
Did some extensive researching and talking to others and these are the crash bars that got the best overall reviews.

For a 2013 BMW F700GS......Is this be compatible with a Touratech Expedition skid plate? Has anyone mounter highway pegs on them?
Christopher S on Feb 21, 2015
What EXACTLY is the "triple black" finish? Powder coat, anodized, or something else? Thanks.
A shopper on Aug 14, 2013
BEST ANSWER: That I have no idea but its a flat black paint that can take a beating. I've had my bike on its side three times on dirt roads and they get scratched up but the paint stays on. I'm happy with them and would recommend them they are solidly built and easy to put on.
Does this fit the new F800 GS ADVENTURE?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: These crash bars will NOT fit the ADVENTURE model as it has a significantly wider front than the standard GS. GREAT bars though!
Hi, will this fit on a Husqvarna nuda 900? I've read on some forums, that they can use F800GS's crash bars, is that true?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry. I don't know if the bars will fit the Husqvarna. Mine fit the 800 GS perfectly.
