By utilizing the R 1200 GS’s robust frame mount and incorporating
the existing frame hardware, AltRider designed a quality
piece that will protect your motor. Unlike other crash
bars, these do not use flanges or weak tabs and are not
hung: they are actually mounted. Made with a shot peen
satin finish means that even when the bike takes a spill,
the stainless bars will never show signs of rust.
These crash bars deflect the impact from the cylinders and
engine case to the strongest parts of the frame. Unlike
other manufacturers, our design provides plenty of clearance
around the vulnerable left oil line. It also serves
double-duty as a boot rest on long rides!
