Crash Bars - BMW R1200GS Water Cooled

It happens to the best of us...  A parking lot tip over, gravel road drop, or even a low-side on the pavement with the R1200GS boxer engine can seriously jeopardize your trip. The valve cover and cylinder hit the ground when the heavy GS tips over, so crash bars are critical protection. Touratech crash bars protect your engine with a stainless steel cage structure that wraps around the valve cover and cylinder of the liquid cooled R1200GS for complete coverage.

Touratech Crash Bars - Better by Design

Made with 2mm wall thickness, 25mm (1 inch) diameter stainless steel tubing, these crash bars are engineered to take a beating and never let you down.  The stainless steel tubing cage completely wraps around the valve covers and cylinder head of the boxer engine, leaving no chance for it to contact the ground.   Touratech engineers take great care to keep the bars compact and low profile, to preserve the maximum lean angle of the BMW R1200GS. While other manufacturers promote bars that stick out far beyond the cylinder, it’s a bad idea because it compromises the lean angle of the motorcycle and makes it difficult to maneuver in tight situations. A crash bar built right should be strong, compact and in tight.

Touratech crash bars are designed to take the force of an impact, and transfer it around the frame and engine of your GS by using a sturdy cross brace system, and specially engineered connections.  The team at Touratech has invested many hours of testing and design analysis to make sure these bars will prevent damage to your R1200GS. In addition to offering the ultimate in protection, the stainless steel tubing follows the natural lines of the GS accenting the distinctive look of this stylish boxer. 

Installation and service couldn't be easier with these crash bars.  All necessary hardware and instructions are included with the kit. They're quick and easy to remove when it's time for your valve adjustment, and do not need to be removed for oil changes.  With Touratech crash bars, you'll never have to remove the engine mounting bolts for installation or service.

Extend the protection from your crash bars up to the radiator and fairings, by adding the optional Touratech upper crash bars.

Went on easy and look good. I bought the black because I have the black GS. haven't dropped it since I put them on but went on a 75 mile dirt/gravel ride today and they make me feel much better.

We tested the Touratech crash bars by rolling one of our two 2014 R1200GS bikes 360 degrees in Utah about 20 miles from the nearest pavement - see Potash Road. We broke a mirror and scratched up the wind screen and the hand guards and, of course put a couple of minor scratches and little dings on the panniers. The crash bars and bash plate look pretty much as new. The toughest part was getting the bike off the rider and then getting the bike back on the road. I dropped mine too. Crash bars as new.
