Note: This is a new item that has light cosmetic damage which may include, but is not limited to scuffs, scratches, stains, chips or dings. The damage affects the aesthetics but not the function of the item. The original packaging may or may not be present. There are small scratches on both crash bars.
AltRider completely redesigned their crash bars for the 2013 R1200GSW. A step up from years past, they utilize 1.25“ (31.75 mm) O.D. stainless steel tubing making them the largest diameter bars on the market. The decision to increase the diameter came from years of research and production results. 1” bars (25.4 mm) allow a significant amount of flex during a crash, creating the need to space them farther from the bike. The stout 1.25” bars allow a tighter profile while still providing real protection. Available in shot peen satin or black powder coat finish, you’ll never have to worry about rust whether you’re crossing the highway or crossing a river.
The top of the bars are secured in a total of three locations per side. The front mount is the only one on the market designed to utilize 2 bolts per side to increase the ability to distribute the load of any impact. The rear is held with a custom machined through-bolt that replaces the engine mount hardware. There are no plastic spacers to break upon impact. This creates an incredibly strong design that distributes any impact evenly throughout the bars, and also makes a solid foundation for upper crash bars.
Another first for AltRider crash bars are the integrated 3/16” (4.76 mm) lower flanges designed to interface with an AltRider skid plate. This creates a modular protection system that doesn’t mount directly to the motor and is substantially more robust than anything else on the market. The AltRider BMW R1200GS Skid Plate (sold separately) attaches directly to the crash bars, distributing impact evenly throughout structure.
Installation is simple and straightforward. All necessary hardware, including a difficult to find T55 bit, is provided with the bars.
