AltRider Crash Bars BMW R1200GS / Adventure
The BMW motor is powerful yet wide, and you want to protect every inch. Wrap that 1200cc gem with our 1 inch stainless crash bars. AltRider set the bar high on this product. Durable and well engineered, the AltRider crash bars are built with precision-manufactured mounts that fit directly into the existing motor mount. Also, integrates well with the AltRider Upper Crash Bars (sold separately), for even more crash coverage.
By utilizing the R 1200 GS’s robust frame mount and incorporating the existing frame hardware, AltRider designed a quality piece that will protect your motor. Unlike other crash bars, these do not use flanges or weak tabs and are not hung: they are actually mounted. Made with a shot peen satin finish means that even when the bike takes a spill, the stainless bars will never show signs of rust.
These crash bars deflect the impact from the cylinders and engine case to the strongest parts of the frame. Unlike other manufacturers, our design provides plenty of clearance around the vulnerable left oil line. It also serves double-duty as a boot rest on long rides!
Save yourself hassle and frustration – and the purchase of a $200 valve cover – by installing AltRider crash bars.
Take a moment to review the instructions. The reason we mention this here is to make you aware which mount points on the R 1200 GS have strength.
- Stainless construction fights corrosion and rust
- Hand TIG welded crash bars are 1 inch diameter for additional strength
- Manufactured in America
- Refined satin peen finish
- Comes with the Torx bit needed for installation
- Removal required for valve adjustment

Reviews & Questions
Did my home work, review ALL the crash bar choices, and decided on these due to look (especially that they are black & few others off that color), quality, and fit/protection. As a bonus, these crash bars are made in America!
Install was straight forward, though requires 2 people AT LEAST to install -- plus some tools that I didn't have handy & had to buy (mostly ratchet extensions & the like, fairly short $).
NOW THE WARNING...
I installed the crash bars after work, while having a few beverages w/ my brother. In the AM, much to my surprise, the bars looked to be crooked! I checked all the mountings for fit & tightness and found all as it should be. I measured & sure enough, the crash bars were significantly closer to the left engine head! No time to take them off, I rode to work w/ plans of writing AltRider an angry email re. poor construction quality... then I noticed that the bars were straight, it was the ENGINE HEADS that are crooked. Apparently, I had missed that my beloved boxer engine is WAY off symmetrical -- due to design!
I've since gotten over the asymmetry (not a lot of that to be found on the GS anyway) and love the bars in both looks & perceived protection.
One drawback is the need to remove the bars for a valve adjustment. However, I will swap that extra thirty minutes for the additional protection these bars offer.
Can you confirm for me whether this is the current updated version of the Altrider crash bars? Specifically I want to know if these in black are the 2nd version of the crash bars. I believe Altrider modified the design in 2013.
Unless there are undocumented changes in the 2012 BMW R 1200 GS, the crash bars should fit.
[And whoever heard of Germans not documenting changes?]
The one I had purchased last year was a single inverted "U" shaped piece
