    Rear Protection Bars

    Available in: Black or Chrome

    The saddlebag protection bars are the ideal complement to our engine protection bars, but they can also be installed without them. They optically integrate to the bike and offer outstanding protection for the rear of the heavy K1600. If your bike were to tip over, the protruding saddlebags would surely suffer some damage. These bars effectively protect the saddlebags against such damage. Also when maneuvering in tight spaces, the bars can protect your bike from scratches and other damage.

    Each saddlebag protection bar attaches to the bike at three points so that in case of a fall, the impact is spread over all points and the energy is absorbed. Ground clearance and cornering clearance is not compromised. Available chrome plated or powder coated black.


    • Protects the saddlebags from side impacts and damage in a tip over
    • Three attachment points, each bar
    • Complexly shaped round tubing
    • Also provides a nice hand hold for the passenger
    • Additionally serves as a lifting and tie down point
    • Supplied complete with all needed hardware and instructions
    • No modifications to the bike required
    • Made in Germany

    *Installation estimated at 30 minutes for this part may vary depending on skill level.

    Rear protection bar
    (IN) | May 2nd, 2023
    The bars were what I expected; well made and attractive. While there is different part numbers for right and left, the bars bore no identifying marks, so fitment was by trial and error. However, when I installed them per the instructions, the lids on my K1600GT bags touched the bars when opening. In short order, the paint on the leading edge of the bags would have been marred. I contacted Wunderlich America and they suggested I install spacers between the bar bracket and the muffler hanger. I purchased some steel washers at Lowes and installed one under the rear two bolts, but the clearance still was insufficient. I added a washer under the bolts, and the clearance was still closer than I liked, but if opened carefully no contact was made. I installed three washers under the right side, and that resulted in sufficient clearance, but I am concerned there is insufficient threads holding the bracket and may have trouble later. I had used Illium bars on my GTL with no problems, but that company was sold and moved to AZ, and they were 4 to 6 weeks from being able to ship, so I decided to give Wunderlich a try.

    Very solid crash bars\luggage protection for the BMW 2022 K1600GT. Easy to install-thanks to the online video. The bars are $$ but, they are quality material and construction.
    Great item!

    They are very easy to install and of great quality. This is the second purchase, the first for my RT and now for my GTL. The RT was knocked over during a flat tire repair incident on concrete and the bike suffered no damage to the panniers because of these bars so now they are on my GTL to provide the same protection.
