The oil cooler guard protects the delicate oil cooler fins from damage that can be caused by damage from stones, insects and other airborne objects. It's almost impossible to clean an oil cooler thoroughly without bending the aluminum fins and after the while the cooler starts to look shoddy. Fitting the oil cooler guard not only ensures that the cooler is protected but after a quick cleaning with a stiff brush, the bike always looks its best.
Installation of the guard requires no drilling or modifications to the bike. It attaches to the mounting bolts of the oil cooler itself.
Please Note: Fits R1200 GS models up to and including 2007. If your bike is a 2008 or later model, please order part number 8501160. (link under the Related Products)
