Product Details

MachineartMoto X-Head DOHC Engine Guard for BMW R1200 / R1200GS / R nineT

X-Head DOHC covers 80% of the face of the cylinder head to protect not only the bottom initial impact area in a drop, but also the upper part of the cylinder head. Even in a driveway drop, the inertia of a fall may cause a bike to roll briefly onto the face of the cylinder before it settles down on its bottom edge. X-Heads cover more area than OEM and other aftermarket head guards.

X-Head DOHC are molded in a DuPont "SuperTough" nylon selected for its blend of high-impact strength, temperature and UV stabilization. The injection molded shell is designed to give slightly in the event of an impact to prevent breakage. Between it and the cylinder head is a 7mm thick thermoplastic rubber liner that aids in dissipating impact force while preventing hard contact with the cylinder.

Each side mounts via the included 3 stainless steel fasteners coated with Nyloc thread locking compound to assure a tight installation.

If your crash bars have had an impact, check that there is still a minimum of 15mm clearance between the crash bars and the X-Heads.

Sold in pairs.

A bit of an installation product
I bought these for my 2011 R 1200 RT and the guards fit extremely well and don't detract from the bikes look at all (IMO).
It is a bit of an installation project, since all the tupperware needs to come off on both sides, but here is a link that gives you a step by step process that made it easy.

Hope that helps.

Awesome product.
Fits great. Looks great. Super easy to install. Definitely provides enough protection to give peace of mind that the head covers will be safe in the event of a drop.

Must have item
Having had an R1150R that suffered scratches on one of the cylinder head covers due to a minor kiss with asphalt, these were the first item on my shopping list for my new R1200GS. I considered all other guards available but felt these were the best option for protection and looks. Fitting was easy, just a little effort required because of the thread lock on the bolts, and I am pleased with the result. The instructions provided were clear and easy to follow. Hopefully I will never have to test the true nature of their durability. Highly recommended.

Save Those Expensive BMW Valve Covers
Much less expensive than BMW, Wunderlich, and other German manufacturers of these products. Highly recommend purchasing and especially from Revzilla because of discounts.

Nice product
These give excellent coverage of the head area. They are heavily
built for a plastic product. The inner cushion fits perfectly.
They are prettier than crash bars on a street bike. If you go down hard enough to bust these you are probably not walking
away so you will have more serious things to worry about.
Don't be neurotic just ride the thing!

Good product
A bit of a tight fit, but following the proper sequence, was all doable. Nice fit, good look. And expect I will only use them as cosmetic enhancements ?. Note: I spent more time taking off something like 20 side panel screws on the 2012 R1200RT that the part install

Good looking and valuable
These really set the gray valve covers and black heads off nicely (aesthetics) on my R1200R (2011). I haven't "tested" them out - thankfully, but I had them installed prior to an advanced riders course last week and had more confidence during the course (i.e., not worrying about dropping the bike on the valve covers).

They were tight on installation, as you need to push the rubber a bit. That is good though as they are very secure.
