Dings, scratches, scrapes, or even a cracked valve cover can all be results of a simple tipover on the liquid cooled R1200GS. With its wide boxer-style engine, the valve covers hit the ground when the bike goes over. Touratech aluminum cylinder head guards offer lightweight and low-profile protection for your BMW's engine.
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.

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.

A cracked plastic fairing or leaking radiator, after a simple tip-over, can put a dent in your pride and your wallet. Protect your BMW R1200GS Water Boxer by adding Touratech Upper Crash Bars to your OEM BMW or Touratech engine crash bars.
Finally, an R1200GS skid plate built to withstand the rigors of a serious adventure. The R1200GS water cooled boxer is made to be ridden off-road, but has no frame underneath the motor to protect it from hazards on the ground. The exhaust manifolds, which are routed under the engine, are also exposed, making the skid plate a true necessity. Touratech has raised the bar by engineering a skid plate with 3 levels of impact-absorbing protection for your R1200GS liquid-cooled engine.
Don't give rocks or branches a place to snag the underside of your GS. Close the gap between the Expedition skid plate and the rear wheel, and give a smooth sliding surface for the entire underside of your R1200GS with this skidplate extension from Touratech. Whether you're gliding your big GS over logs and rocks, or just want to keep the dirt and grime buildup off your exhaust system and centerstand, this extension is a great addition to your Expedition skid plate.
Anyone who has bought a new motorcycle knows it doesn't take long to start rubbing off the frame's finish with your boots. If you have off-road boots, they can wear out the finish even faster.

This easy to install guard from Touratech will keep your rear brake fluid reservoir safe from damage or curious hands, making sure your rear brake pedal is there when you need it.

Protect your water boxer's vulnerable front ABS sensor from rock and debris damage with this simple, easy to install guard from Touratech.

Save yourself time, money and heartache with this small, but effective guard.
You hear it all the time while riding gravel roads on the R1200GS: the sound of rocks pinging off your exhaust headers. While it can be a beautiful sound to some, it doesn't take long to put dings, scratches and dents on the water cooled boxer's exhaust manifolds because of their exposed design. Even on paved roads, you'd be surprised what the front tire kicks up into your exhaust pipes. With these heavy-duty stainless steel guards from Touratech, your exhaust headers will be safe from flying rocks and debris no matter what kind of roads you're on.
When you first look at the front-end of the water cooled BMW R1200GS, it appears the manufacturer left something off of the brake calipers.

Cover and protect your brake calipers and pads with these specially designed covers from Touratech.
Water crossings can be the most exciting part of an off-road adventure on your R1200GS. Unfortunately with the liquid cooled R1200GS, the final drive can sustain some damage from being submerged.
