Product Details

AltRider Cylinder Head Guards BMW R 1200 R 

The boxer engine has many advantages ranging from a low center of gravity to endless gobs of usable power. However, the cantilevered cylinders are susceptible to damage, even from a static tip over. AltRider Cylinder Head Guards help to distribute the impact load across a larger surface area and stand in front of your relatively fragile valve covers with the strength of TIG-welded corrugated aluminum.  

Each side features a replaceable CNC-machined aluminum skid pad, allowing you to refresh the guards in the event of a mishap. The inside of the cylinder head guards utilize specially designed rubber pads to isolate them from the valve cover. 


  • AltRider motorcycle accessories are 100% designed and manufactured in the USA
  • 1/8” (3.2mm) cylinder head guards prevent scrapes and scratches
  • Rubber bumpers isolate the guards from the valve cover
  • CNC-machined skid pads are replaceable

Black head guards to match my Arthracite Altrider crash bars
I purchased the head guards to match my arthracite Altrider crash bars. The right side installed easily. The left side required loosening the crash bars and flattening the tab on the head guard so I could slip it in between the bars and the head for installation. The guards looked a bit industrial and rugged out of the box. I've received two compliments and I admit that they look good on. I have not "tested" them on the street, thankfully. I'm not excited about thrashing a new $20k bike in the dirt, but will do so once I find some appropriate soft bags and get a few miles on my newish 2015 R1200GS. I plan to update my review at that time.
