    Wunderlich Engine Protection Bars

    Available in: Black, Silver or Chrome

    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. 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

    Please note the following:

    These bars are not designed to be compatible with the Original BMW accessory valve cover protectors.

    On the chrome version, center support and bottom carrier are silver powdercoat. Only the protruding bars are chrome plated.

    Not compatible with Remus header pipes due to tight clearances.

    Please Note: The video for this product shows a bike that also has the saddlebag protection bars installed.

    *Installation estimated at 40 minutes for this part may vary depending on skill level.

    Great product, minimalistic yet protective

    I considered other engine protection bars but really liked that these do not interfere with service access to the cylinder heads. I'm very pleased with how they turned out.
    Crash bars and highway pegs
    | April 21st, 2021
    Just installed both on my 2018 RT. Installation was easy enough, very nice quality overall. The highway pegs are especially well made and really allow a nice positioning of my legs. Hope there are no issues with puncturing the head on a fall.
    Do Not Instal Highway Pegs with these Bars
    | October 26th, 2018
    Dealer installed rear & engine protection bars plus highway pegs in 2017. Recently the bike went over hard. The engine guard bent enough for the highway peg mounting bracket to pierce a hole into the Cylinder head cover, with significant oil leak. Don't know if the bars are not strong enough to take the impact of the fall or if the concentration of force at the peg mounting hardware did not allow the bar to dissipate the force of the impact, allowing it to bend and pierce the cover. I suspect the latter and removed the Hwy. pegs.

    Look Great - Not too hard to install, but some slight complications.

    No difficulties installing these, and I am not a good mechanic! Upper fairing does not snap off as easily as the demo would suggest. There are useful tips in the reviews, I would read them before I began. The tabs on the top of my left side top fairing measured 1 mm thick, (almost criminally thin!) and were broken already when I started. I took a 10 mm piece of clothes hanger, cut a shallow channel with a Dremel,.and epoxied the piece where the tabs were with JB Weld epoxy, and it worked perfectly after curing overnight.
    Realy cheap insurace when your bike falls down
    (Lacey, WA) | October 29th, 2015
    As I write this I'm on my third RT. My 2004 1150 was blown down on a windy day in a parking lot, having me to file an insurance claim for $1500.oo. The 2011 1200RT I had was very top heavy bike making any kind of slow speed riding impossible, high speed sweeper curves scary as the bike wants to turn sharper than your intended path, and with the suicide side stand that would let you think it had locked down into position would actually come back up, and over you went when you would lean the bike over. When I traded this bike in I paid over $850.oo for a new set valve covers. I've learned my lesson the hard way, $1500.oo insurance clain, $850.oo replacement valve covers is a lot more than $500.oo for a set of these bars.

    Easy install- less than 1 hour. I don't have the Aux Lights--only had to remove the bottom fairing on both sides. The video is a great help. Got the silver--good match
    Removal for Maintanence?
    (Potomac, Md) | February 11th, 2015
    Description says bars do not need to be removed for maintenance. Previous poster says he cannot remove valve covers for maintenance while bars are attached. I bought these bars because I thought they looked good, would hold highway pegs, but most of all...would not have to be removed for maintenance. Very important to me. If this is not true, I will be asking Wunderlich to take my bars back for a full refund, including shipping.
    Can not remove valve covers!
    (HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA) | February 11th, 2015
    The bars look great and install without too much difficulty. The description says they do not interfere with maintenance. The only maintenance in the area of the bars is adjusting the valves. I can tell you after much sweat and tears that there is no way in hell to get the valve covers off with the bars installed. Whoever wrote that is sadly misinformed. So, expect additional maintenance cost if you're paying the dealer or additional hassle if you do it yourself. I tried!
    Nice complement to the bike
    (Charlotte, North Carolina) | November 15th, 2014
    These well-designed bars fit tightly and complement the bike well (silver bars). They bolt on solidly without much drama (the removal of a T50 torx screw the biggest challenge). The hardware was complete and definitely adequate (as it is mostly out of sight), but for the price point, stainless steel would be expected. Overall, very satisfied with the look and feel of these bars.
    (Prescott Valley, AZ) | May 18th, 2014
    These install easily. Look good when done too, at least my silver colored ones do. The instructions, could be a little bit better. Like, do not assemble these to bike without 1st removing the forward Torx head Frame bolt before you do the install the bars as the instructions say. On my machine I needed to "loosen only" the rear torx bolt too as the frame was bound and could not reinsert the new bolt from the kit. This occurred on both sides. I am referring to the rear mount of the engine guard where it attaches to the frame. When you hold up the bars to the side of the bike you will easily see. 2. There was no way I could install the left side without first removing/ loosening the frame bolts as described above and the lower plastic body support and pushing it down and out of the way. 3. I do not have the factory driving lights on mine as I will install Gerbings so I am sure those of you that do will run into issues not described here. 4. Over all, an easy install. Now for buying & installing road pegs! Richb2
