Product Details

AltRider Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GT/GTL

The BMW K1600 GT/GTL is a beast of a bike that requires hefty support to stand up to its size. 

AltRider’s in-house design team took a careful analysis of the center of gravity of the bike, and the ability to distribute the robust load on impact. In the case of an accidental tip-over, the cross bar distributes the load  from one side to the other, relieving pressure from the existing mounting points to the other side of the bike. The connector bar adds significant strength to the design, effectively connecting into the threaded and blind boss on each side which provides 2 more locations for distributing impact.

The assembly for these engine protection bars is moved out 1.75” and up 2” from the original OEM design. Two reasons for this unique design change:

  • This design provides a higher resting angle when the bike is on its side, allowing a rider to pick the bike up after it falls on its side. Unlike boxer motors, the K1600 will lie almost flat, making it difficult to even pick up the bike. The higher point of the bar will stop the bike from rolling over further, making it manageable for a single operator to upright the bike. This will minimize the damage to the upper fairings, windshield, mirrors, and handlebars.
  • The current OEM engine bars are placed very low on the frame and become a pivot point causing a falling bike to continue to topple over onto the upper fairings. AltRider's design halts this problem with the enlargement of the AltRider bars, preventing the bike from rolling over further in any crash or stationary drop. 

Features:

  • Manufactured in America
  • Stunning shot peen finish in silver or black
  • Precision manufactured mounts bolts up effortlessly
  • Hand TIG welded, yielding extra strength
  • Quality stainless construction resists rust or oxidation
  • 1 inch stainless steel tubing

Made in the USA

Worth it!
I installed the ADV Crash Bars just in case I tipped my new K1600GT over, and sure enough, I did. I stopped awkwardly on a road that declined right to left, and I couldn't stop all 700lbs of bike from falling over using only one leg, so I basically set it down. The bars made lifting the bike back up much easier and the only damage the bike has to show for it is some scrapes on the crash bar and a tiny scuff on the left side bag. These bars are quite a bit less expensive than replacing one of those bags, so it's absolutely a worthwhile investment.

Nice craftsmanship.
They installed very easily. The video was a lot better than the paper instructions. Everything went smoothly and they look awesome. They look like they were designed with, not for, the bike.

Comes with mount for aux lights if desired. Certainly a selling point for the product. Directions were simple and easy and several videos demonstrating installation.

I hope I never have to test them. I don't question that they would perform flawlessly.

Great set of bars
Great set of bars. Was a tight fit, but that was easily overcome and the guys at ALTrider were awesome - they answered the phone quickly and offered advice.
I also installed the Ilium Highway Pegs - a PERFECT combination.

Essential accessory for this bike.
A very clever design of a lower crash bar for the BMW K1600GT. Its purpose is to prevent damage in a tip over of this relatively heavy bike, but goes a step further. It will facilitate uprighting what is a heavy bike, something I might not be able to do by myself without the leverage that the bar provides. The bars blends well with the bike and fitted perfectly. They do not look like impeding servicing of the bike.

A well made product.
These highway bars fit the bike perfectly and were easy to install. The satin SS finish matches my K1600 GTL finishes very well. I like the way the auxiliary lights bolt directly to the bars.

Call it fate for my BMW K1600 GTL. I had the bars for one week and decided to practice small circles in front of the house. Unfortunately, too slow and too much tilt; bike dropped. No damage to fairing and because of the bar angle I was able to pick up easily (before anyone saw me). Surprisingly, there were no scratches to the bars. The bars saved me from thousands of dollars in damage. Fate was kind.
