Hand Guards Video

This brief video explains the features and benefits of the Touratech GD hand guards for your BMW R1200GS.

BMW R1200GS & Adventure Handguards - A large adventure touring motorcycle like the  BMW R1200GS or R1200GS Adventure  needs the best protection for its handlebars and controls. Protect your BMW's bars, levers, and controls with a set of Touratech handguards. Built out of extremely tough plastic, these hand guards give you the benefit of being flexible, absorbing impact instead of transfering it to your handlebars or bar mounts like a rigid aluminum or steel guard. 

Available in several different colors, these guards come with all the necessary mounting hardware and are designed to be an exact fit for your BMW R1200GS's original handlebars.  If you'd like extra wind and rain coverage, additional spoilers are available for purchase separately.

  • Made of high-strength plastic
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Available in Black, Blue, Yellow, Red and White (not factory colors)
  • Fits BMW R1200GS or Adventure, All Years (select year and model from menu above)
  • Compatible with heated grips, original bar-end weights, and Kaoko throttle locks
  • Optional spoilers available in different covers for more coverage

I have crashed by bike way too many times with these on. I have never broken a lever or handguard. The white guard looks really sweet on my red R1200GS with the red spoiler added on too.

I took the regular hand guards that cam with my GSA and installed these. Not only do they compliment the bike but they actually hold really nice in the event of dropping your bike or hitting some barks. This is not a necessity to have but will give a very nice look to your bike with functionality, just make sure you ask for the fairing that mounts on top to give you the complete look and additional hand protection.

Nice product but there are no specific instructions for my 2005 BMW R1200GS. I had to call tech support to know how to mount the inner brackets. The 2008 & later models require the inner brackets with the large tabs mounted up (as shown on the .pdf instructions) while the 2007 and earlier needs to have the large tabs mounted down. There is nothing to note that! After much trial and error, they look and perform great.

My R12GSW had BMW guards when I got the bike; I didn't think they offered much wind protection and they seemed pretty flexible. I decided to get some white Touratech hand guards (the bike is white) and the additional upper section to improve the wind protection and make the bike more visible from the front. Before installing the Touratech guards I pushed on the end of the BMW guards as hard as I could parallel to the handlebars and noted how far they deflected. I did the same thing with the Touratech guards; they deflected at most about one fourth as much as the BMW units, so I can say the new guards are much stiffer. I haven't ridden the bike with the new guards yet. Pay close attention to the R and L halves of the supplied handlebar clamps (they are slightly different) and get them installed in the position shown in the instructions (match an R and an L on each side of the handlebar) Put the upper sections on before you install the guards or you'll be taking them off to complete the installation.
