    Engine Protection Bars, Black

    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 under the related products tab. 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.

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

    *Installation estimated at 45 minutes for this part may vary depending on skill level.

    2005 R1200RT ENGINE GUARDS
    (NM) | April 17th, 2023
    Recently purchased a pair of black Wunderlich engine guards for our '05 R1200RT. With some spreading of the pieces, bolt patterns did eventually line up. A little concerned about cylinder head protection in the event of a drop. The upper connection of the actual guarding tubes are fixed in place to their mating tubes by set screws. Seems possible for one tube to slide inside the other and not actually protect the engine. Hoping, of course, to not find out.

    Look great!

    I bought these in black for my 2011 RT and I think they look great. However, I think for the high price they should come with stainless hardware. I replaced the center support zinc hex head bolts with stainless hex socket bolts, and the 6mm set screws with hex socket screws, which uses a larger hex wrench to tighten instead of the tiny hex wrench. Looks more professional. The lower support bracket took some work to get everything to line up, but it worked out okay. Also, either side can be removed from the center support for maintenance if necessary. I definitely recommend these engine bars.

    Difficult Instructions - Lacks pictures for proper screw selection
    | March 26th, 2017
    I had trouble installing the engine guard cause the instructions were lacking pictures to help the user in correlating which size and shape of screw you needed for a particular section. I am not a mechanic, so for me I need pictures similar to the instructions for the rear crash guard. I ended up placing the most obvious screws in first and working my way around the guard off to the side of the bike. Once I had it figured out I was good and had no further installment issues. This can be installed by a novice just make sure you purchased the correct tools and have a plan where all the screws need to go. Designed perfectly around the bike! Placed on a 2012 BMW 1200RT. Love it

    Bars went on in an hour. Used rubber mallet. BMW valve cover protectors fit fine.

    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!

    The bars were easy to install and look great on the bike. I have not had to test the bars thank goodness so I can not give a review for the amount if protection they provide.

    Bars appear to be very well made and will serve their intended purpose well. Instructions were pathetic. Install is a bit of a hassle, especially if you do not want to take the lower fairing off. Have to be removed to access the alternator belt or do other major inspections. Overall I am happy with them as they do look good on the bike. They are scaled nicely to the RT.
    Great Bars

    Nice clean install, very tight to as advertised, no obstruction to lean angles. Install was simple, keep it all loose then line up and fasten.
