Product Details

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.

Features:

  • 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
Made in the USA

Great reviews and great product. Why did I buy this product from Revzilla? Because I trust Revzilla. Fair prices, free shipping and I believe Revzilla wants to educate their buyers, help us make an educated buying decision.
Steven W on May 11, 2015
I watched the video reviews and compared the AltRider bars to Touratech bars fellow riders have. These are more expensive but I believe they are made better and are designed to be stronger, not that I plan on dropping my bike.
Garrett G on Nov 24, 2014
Since the OEM crash bars on my 2009 BMW R1200GS Adv. are, for the most part, decoration I wanted a crash bar system that would allow me to use my bike as it was intended. The AltRider crash bar system impressed me when I saw it at the 2014 MOA Rally. I'm confident that I'll finally get the protection I've been needing since the machine was new. Thanks Revzilla & AltRider.
Randy V on Oct 30, 2014
Best protection for a crash. Cons of AltRider: must remove before valve lash inspection. The time taken to remove the crash bars is worth it for the protection. HB crash bars tweek after a couple crashes. TT bars don't cover the entire cylinder head. Any protection is better than the stock crash bars.
David Y on Mar 5, 2014
like the build made in usa altrider service is very good
william t on Mar 4, 2014
After extensive research I determined the Altrider crash bars made the most sense for GS protection.
Alan M on Feb 23, 2014
A high quality crash bar which also fits with the OEM aluminium cylinder head protectors already fitted to my bike.

Hi,

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.
Joon K on Jul 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe they are the latest version, although the ones I bought are sliver. They are fitted to my 2012 "Camhead" and certainly look good. You can always ring AltRider and talk to them if you have any other specific questions. I did, before buying them through RevZilla.
Will the alt rider crash bars fit a 2012 GS? The specs only list 2005-10
A shopper on Jan 5, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The specs on the AltRider website have been updated to "Fits 2005-2011"

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?]
Will these crash bars fit a 2011 R1200GS?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will I have them on my 2011 GS, I think they are the best crash bars on the market!
Can you please verify that this is the most recent revision of this Altrider upper crash bar that fits the Adventure tank (will be installed on a 2009 BMW GS Adventure)?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure.
The one I had purchased last year was a single inverted "U" shaped piece
I want to purchase the 1200GS crash bars in silver. Some of your photos show the older style Altrider bars for this bike while others show the latest style with the beefed-up lower mounting points on a single 1/4" thick plate. Can you guarantee that I will receive the latest style bars if I purchase in silver or triple-black?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: If you don't believe revzilla,don't do business with them.I have no problems and would highly recommend Revzilla .Their customer service is great.
I have a 2010 R1200GS with the BMW aluminum valve covers. Are the Altrider engine guards compatible or do I have to remove the BMW aluminum covers?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we can confirm from AltRider that the Crash Bars for the BMW 1200GS are compatible with BMW OEM plastic and aluminum cylinder head guards
Will you be carrying the full catalog of AltRider gear for the new XT1200Z Super Tenere? I just picked mine up and need to outfit it and would prefer to buy from Revzilla as you are local to me.

Thanks!
A shopper on Aug 5, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Just plug in "XT1200Z" to our search bar. We have quite a few AltRider products for this bike.
