AltRider Oil Cooler Guard BMW S1000XR

The oil cooler for the BMW S1000XR sits low and open right behind the front tire, making it dangerously susceptible to kicked up debris. Protection for this essential part of your bike is a necessity, and with the AltRider Oil Cooler Guard you get maximum coverage, all with a clever design that still allows essential air flow.

Made of 1/16 inch anodized aluminum, it tucks neatly over the oil cooler and attaches with 3M high-temp VHB, rated to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. The guard’s subtly styled louvers were designed to protect and deflect debris, while encouraging maximum air flow to the oil cooler. The piece creates a seamless appearance that complements the matching AltRider Radiator Guard.

Features:

  • Lightweight 1/16" anodized aluminum construction
  • Maximum airflow meets maximum protection
  • Adhesive tabs ensure perfect, quick installation
  • Made in the USA

Wait until AltRider improves this.
Bought this and the matching rad guard to go on my BMW S1000XR because it looks to offer the most protection on the market, and AltRider was the first to market with a complete set that I could find on the interweb. Returned this and the rad guard because the design of this oil cooler needs some work. Hopefully AltRider will improve the design. I do not recommend it right now.

Design. This, along with the installation, is the reason for the one-star review. It's upside down! The cooler is wisely designed with louvers to allow air flow into the oil cooler, but the louvers open DOWN, which is the direction that all the crud and stones and roost comes from. When you look at the guard from where you stand, your oil cooler looks totally armored. But take a stones-eye view, and you realize that the openings leave the oil cooler totally exposed. And no, you can't just flip the part upside down (read: I didn't install it upside down) because there is a drain plug or overpressure valve at the bottom of the oil cooler, so the guard only fits on one way. See pictures.

Finish. I chose the "silver" color which is really just raw unfinished aluminum. It has sharp burrs and rough edges where it was cut. I would recommend the black which I assume is painted, or maybe finish it myself.

Fit. The guard fits over the oil cooler like a glove. Nailed it!

Installation. The installation is the other reason for the one-star review. The instructions are great (pay attention to the part about how to neatly take BMW plastic fasteners off!), but the installation method is flawed. The guard mounts at four points directly to the oil cooler with...wait for it...tape. The instructions call it "heat-resistant" tape, and maybe it is, but it still doesn't hold. I dutifully followed the directions, cleaned the oil cooler with the included alcohol wipe, in fact, I used a few because I have a box of them on my workbench, and waited for it to dry. Then I stuck the guard on, squeezed with all my might for a minute to allow the tape to adhere, released the pressure, and *pop* three of four pieces of tape released. I tried again but the tape was already shot. And really, I wasn't so hot on the idea of having a sharp piece of aluminum stuck right in front of my rear wheel on a triple-digit speed bike using nothing but double-sided tape in the first place. So back to revzilla it went.

Summary. This is a tough-looking and well fitting oil cooler guard that needs some simple improvements. It should be fastened to the bike by something more secure than sticky tape, and the louvers should open up, not down. Until then, I wouldn't recommend it.
