Gearbox Reinforcement for the BMW R1100 GS only. Problems occur when the workload on the rear frame is too high, i.e. after a jump or when riding with heavy luggage, passenger or riding fast on very rough roads, and combinations of the above. The rear frame can break the transmission case. The broken transmission case is no longer covered by BMW warranty on this older 1100. It is better to install this brace and prevent the problem entirely.BMW solved this problem for the 1150, but for the 1100 the only solution is this hard part, developed by TOURATECH in 1996 and is still the standard. Thus far, no GS has broken a transmission with this part installed. Another concern on the 1100 is the footpeg support. Impact forces can break the transmission case if the footpeg hits an immoveable rock (during a fall for example). The Hard Part GV transfers these forces into the frame rather than into the transmission case.The Hard Part GV is considered an essential accessory for any R1100GS used on rough terrain.
