    Supplement Engine Bars

    The Original BMW engine protection bars for the R1200 GS and Adventure lack the most important thing: protection for the valve cover! We've seen many bikes go down in various situations over the years and for the most part the valve cover get damaged or destroyed because the Original BMW engine bar really only provides protection to hits from the front, not from the side.

    Wunderlich has developed this easy to install, supplemental engine bar which provides the needed additional protection for the valve cover and also serves to strengthen the engine bar assembly. The lower strut of this part also provides protection for the lower spark plug, located in the bottom of the cylinder head.

    The Wunderlich Engine bars have this feature built in but if your bike is equipped with the OEM bars, there's not much sense in replacing them when all you need is this simple upgrade. After all, the BMW bar is of outstanding quality, fit and finish. It just lacks this add-on.

    The finish of the supplemental bar is silver powder coat. It does not match the finish of the Original Engine Bar however it looks great when installed.


    • Protection for the Valve cover in virtually every situation
    • Additional protection for the lower spark plug and coil
    • Robust construction
    • No reduction in ground clearance
    • No modifications to the bike are needed
    • Easy to install
    • Supplied complete with everything needed to install

    Not satisfied
    Installing on my 2008 R1200GSA, First I had to fabricate brackets to move one side rearward so that it wouldn’t push up against exhaust sensor plug. Then when I tried to reinstall my highway pegs made by creative cycle concepts, I discovered that the tubes I would need to mount to are a different diameters from one side to the other. Very frustrating!! I had to put in shims to make that work

    Very High Quality
    I put these bars on 2010 GSA. The quality is OEM level and the fit was perfect. I mainly got these to mount their highway pegs. A bit spendy, but I'm pleased.

    If i wanted looks....
    If I cared that all the parts on my bike matched i'd think twice about these - because they don't match the stock bars....BUT once they are covered in mud and dirt - who will know. AND they are a great alternative location to mount the highway pegs - much more comfortable than the stock bars provide.

    Solid as a rock
    I recently installed these bars on my 2012 GSA. The fit was very good, but the installation wasn’t easy without a lift for the bike. They are sturdy and solid. I have an existing scrape on one valve cover from a “moving dismount” on a rocky road in the Nevada desert. These bars should prevent a repeat of that damage.

    Great addition for the money.
    Nice addition to the crash bar protection. I would highly recommend adding this item to the bike. Install is fairly easy and seems very stable. Will see after the first drop.
