The Hard Part for the original BMW engine guard (BMW part no: 7160 7 702 951) consists of hard wearing rubber mats and an air permeable, heat resistant "open cell foam".
The open-cell foam has already proved extremely successful with the BMW Touratech Racing Team. It effectively prevents the spaces between the engine guard from stones collecting and settling there. The foam block can be cut or trimmed as required, and is secured neatly and unobtrusively with cable ties. The rubber mats are glued directly to the guard, thereby preventing stones from settling between the oil reservoir and engine guard.
The BMW engine guard Hard Part prevents stuck stones from penetrating the oil reservoir and tearing off the rubber bearings on the engine guard in the event of bottoming out and impacts. This item is recommended for those who will ride the F800GS in hard off-road.
