I considered other fairing protection bars but these are perfect! The extra bars to protect the mirrors are a great idea. They are not easy to install since you have to take most fairings and gas tank covers off, but once it's done, it looks great!

I have to first say that anyone with any mechanical abilities can install the uppers, lowers and rear protection bars in about 4-6 hours. I took 6 with breaks and lunch break. I did not have the right size Torx set so I ended up going to the local auto parts store and got a complete set for $29 which is part of the 6 hours. Rear bars - I had absolutely no problems installing the rear protection bars. I installed them in about 25 minutes. Lower Engine bars - The biggest part of the job was removing the lower and upper side fairing panels for access which by the way was easy peezy! My big suggestion here is to make sure you leave them lose until you get the upper protection bars installed loosely so you can tighten and torque the upper and lower bars together. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP ALL THE HARDWARE IN THE HOLES OF WHERE THEY GO ON PANELS YOU REMOVE! It will just make for a quicker re-install when putting the bike back together. Upper Protection bars - Where do I start....You have to remove the upper BMW panel and Lower panel to gain access to install the attachment bars. Then you have to remove the fasteners that are used for the attachment points of the upper bar attachment bracket. RIGHT SIDE: First thing you do is to reinstall the lower panel and fan shroud because the upper bar attachment bracket goes over it on the upper rear edge. I then removed the screws to attach the attachment bar bracket which was super easy BUT BE CAREFUL when you are attaching this piece so as not to drop any hardware. What I found easy was to thread the forward bolt in first since it had a spacer as part of the build up and you don't want it bouncing around and getting lost. NOTE TO SELF!! MAKE SURE YOU REINSTALL THE GROUND STRAP BEHIND THE SPACER!! You don't want to leave off a ground strap on a bike! Then I installed the aft bolt but remember to use the big black washer you removed that was already installed on the bike which goes between the bushing and attachment bracket point. It makes a big difference when tightening the attachment brackets because the lower attach point of the upper protection bar will move around and be hard to install later. One good idea here is to loosely install the attachment brackets and upper bar to the lower engine bar before you tighten and torque everything. To do this requires you to leave the upper decorative panel off so you can make sure it all lines up nicely. Me personally I kind of played with it and I tightened the upper attachment bar bracket and then I test fitted my upper decorative panel to make sure it would go on properly with no pre-load. Then once I made sure my bracket was located properly I attached the upper panel and then installed the upper protection bar locating the two upper screws first and then installed the lower part of the upper bar. KEEP IN MIND! - Make sure all attach points are located and loosely installed before torquing. THis may seem like a lot but once you get the learning curve down you are off and running for the left side or which ever side you end up doing last. One last suggestion do a count of fasteners and MAKE SURE you don't have any left over fasteners other than the ones you are replacing with the kit! Was it easy?....In my opinion it was very easy because I have a lot of mechanical back ground and I get it. Will it be easy for everyone? No because some people should just leave these kinds of things to the pro's or their dealers to install. I don't speak German and "Yes" the instructions could be better but I would suggest this set of protection bars again and again because of ease of installation and they LOOK HOT on my new '17 R1200RT! Thanks Wunderlich for a great looking and easy to install product!!!!
