Engine Protection Bars
With these engine bars, we've applied our extensive experience in Engine Protection Bar design and once again hit a home run. This completely new design, developed especially for the R1200 RT, provides outstanding protection in more ways than one. Not only does it protect the valve covers from damage, it also protects the sump. The engine guard securely mounts at six optimally placed mounting points which share the load and protect from serious damage in most tip over situations. Cornering clearance is not compromised and all routine maintenance can be carried out without the need for removal. Installation is easily carried out with basic tools and no cutting or modification of any type is required. The engine protection bar is available in either a chrome finish or powder coated silver or black. The bar looks great and integrates perfectly with the RT's design.
Check out these facts:
• Even load distribution
• Protects cylinders and fairing
• Protects sump and oil filter
• Strong mounting system
• Removal not required for maintenance
• Precision steel construction
• Cornering clearance not compromised
• Easy to install
• No modifications needed
• Available in silver, black or chrome

|I purchased this product less than a year ago before a 3 week trip to BC. It was difficult to fit on the bike & required some serious effort to align the mounting holes. I didn't give it much thought until last week when I had to remove the left side guard to try to mount some highway pegs. (that's another issue) At the attachment points at the front of the motor I discovered the left side bolt sheared off & the right side bracket attachment broken off. Good thing I didn't have to count on these things in a crisis. Poorly designed front attachment. The other issue is the space difference between guard & cylinder head, right vs. left. There is no room on the left side for highway peg attachment. Look elsewhere for a set of guards.|
|Bars went on in an hour. Used rubber mallet. BMW valve cover protectors fit fine.|
|I had no problems with the installation ( the rubber mallet was a great idea ) and they look great. Very much worth the price to protect those fragile cylinder head covers.|
|Take a little effort to install. But okay|
|It's been ages since I turned a wrench and I've got some injuries (and age) that slowed me down quite a bit. But not counting a run to the tool store, this install took me about 1 1/2 hours. If you can get up and down from the ground like a normal human being, or have a lift so you don't have to, it will take you quite a bit less time. I put these bars on my 2011 R1200RT. Not nearly as difficult as the some of the horror stories here and none of the problems with ill fitting parts. The included instructions are insufficient and the online videos do not help much, but thanks to those who wrote here about having to remove a bolt on the left side and replace it with the included one, I managed. At one point, when the bottom support bracket appeared to be off by 1/2", and I thought I'd have to get out the Dremel and enlarge a hole on the bottom bracket considerably, I started composing a poor review in my head. Then I remembered that some writers here had mentioned the judicious use of a rubber mallet. Sure enough, one light tap and the holes lined up perfectly. My addition to the installation instructions is a warning to those with minimal tool kits. You'll need about 9" of ratchet extension to R & R the bolt that holds the crossover on the left side. It's waaaaay in there. I'm happy with the fit, finish and look of these bars. Now if only my highway pegs would arrive!|
|Fits pretty well, however the directions don't mention removing a bolt you need to use to secure them -seems strange, also the stock BMW cyl head covers WILL FIT -however they are tight, but DO FIT. yes they will get scrapped up also -but that's a given as will the crash bars too. over all - good solid protection with these bars.|
|Bars look great on the bike. Hope I don't have the opportunity to find out how well they work. Installation was a bit tricky as the tolerances are so close that you can't tighten anything until all of the different pieces kind of push into place. Patience and a rubber mallet helped!|
|Purchased these engine guards for my 2015RTW. The instructions are straightforward and the guards are very easy to install. They look great on the bike and - IMO - make the m/c look a bit more 'finished.' Quite happy with this product so far. Hopefully I'll never "need" it to do its job, though :)|
|The product seems to be well made,except engineers need to reengineer tolerance fit measurements. I had to reshape the under mount by about a 1/4 to 3/8. It was off just enough to not work. One side mount loop that protects the valve covers had to be slightly pressured into place and the set screw had to be replaced. I think I lost it in the fight. That tiny screw should be enlarged to better accommodate the vibration. And why have the screws poin rt ing in two different direction? I suggest red locktite. They already worked loose.|
|I purchased this product used,it was previously mounted on a 2008 R1200RT. The bar assembly that bolts to the bottom of the engine is an extremely poor fit on my bike. I had to grind down the tops of the front tabs and parts of the tab welds, and also had to "stretch" all 4 mounting holes to get both the front and back to bolt up. Actually, the front wouldn't even bolt up by itself (the back would, but not in concert with the front. Since the previous owner had no difficulty with mounting the bar, I am assuming BMW may have made some minor changes to the casting for the lower crankcase. Once bolted in, however, these look really strong.|
