    Oil Cooler Guard

    The oil cooler of the K1600 GT, GTL, Bagger and Grand America is well positioned for the onrushing air stream, unfortunately, the result of this is that anything carried by this stream finds its way into the cooler. Stones, insects and grime fill up the delicate fins of the cooler and cannot be removed without extensive labor, and usually the cooler fins bend and never look the same again.

    This cooler guard uses a finely meshed grill that ensures the cooling properties remain unaffected. The size of the opening between the wires is 5mm square (3/16") and the grill is precision welded to the steel fame at several points. The entire assembly is powder coated and it will resist chips and remain in great conditions for many thousands of miles.

    Some facts:

    • Optimal protection with a well styled appearance
    • Effective at protecting the oil cooler from damage
    • Rigid, powder coated steel frame with welded steel screen, fits perfectly
    • Anti vibration mounting points
    • No modifications of any kind are needed to install
    • Easy installation, attaches to existing mounting points
    • Complete with all needed hardware and detailed instructions

    Nice oil filter guard for the 2018 GA
    I really do like the look. Wunderlich has some great accessories, but... this damn thing. “Easy install” is subjective. I had to go to Home Depot to get some tools to help me access the covered screws.. didn’t help. Unless you have little-girl hands, accessing the screws is a serious bitch. I spent almost an hour trying to install this guard. No way in hell it can be done unless you have tiny hands. I had to have my wife tighten the screws. That said.. looks great. I hope my wife really tightened those screws down. And I used lok-tight 👍

    Top quality shield
    This shield is built to exacting standards. Exceptional quality build and powder coating. Fits perfectly. The only negatives in my opinion are the price and instructions. That said I'd buy this guard again.

    Missing part. BEST Customer service ever !!! K1600GT 2012
    When I got this product the left bracket was missing in the kit, I call Wunderlich and I got the "BEST" Customer service ever. They just asked me for my order number and basically I got the missing part super fast. Installation was very easy. I took jus between 5 to 10 minutes to complete the installation and the cooler guard looks vey nice and solid. I totally recommend this Oil cooler guard.

    Insurance policy
    Had avoided is product for years, seemed too expensive. After a trip out west this summer, noticed two substantial hits on the oil cooler. Dented the fins but didn't penetrate. I was lucky. Bought the cooler guard right away. Went on easy, videos helped a lot, and looks great. Still expensive, for what it is, but cheaper than a tow and new cooler.

    As advertised
    Fits well. Looks great. Should be stock on the motorcycle. This definitely saves wear and tear on the oil cooler.

    Oil Cooler Guard
    This Oil Cooler Guard is a must especially if you live in a dusty dry climate. At least twice a month, I would have to pick out the tones, insects, etc. that would get lodged in the cooler fins. After 10k miles the fins start to distort and they have to be repainted for cosmetic purposes. In addition the guard fills the gap below the fairing rather nicely. It is definitely a quality accessory to your GT and it’s any easy install. Thank You Wunderlich!

    OIL COOL GAURD
    A bit tricky to install as the instructuions are not very clear but you will figure it out with some dexterity. it will probably protect from both bugs and stonese from sticking and/or damaging the oil cooler fins. looks nice. Pricey for what it is but I guess witha K1600GTL it comes with that premium for protection.

    Order shipped but not received
    Dear Sir, I received the email attached on July 16 informing that the oil cooler guard ordered was shipped, but until now I did not received it. The Post in Brazil tell me that this pack is not in Brazil yet. I ask you what is happening. Concerning about the other item ordered, the bag reflectors, I have already received last week. Thanks for the attention. Alexandre Hello Alexandre, It looks like the only thing we have shipped out was the oil cooler guard here is your tracking # CJ457313545US you can track it @ www.usps.com We will ship your bag reflector’s when they arrive unfortunately we did not have them in stock when you placed the order.

    Solid Product
    The quality of the piece and the finish of it are stellar. It installed quickly and looks great. Just one disappointment: the mounting hardware is both hex (not Torx) and silver (not black).

    Oil cooler guard for GTL
    Looks like it should be a factory item. Perfect fit and looks great.

    Form and function
    This product provides the functional protection needed for the oil cooler (I agree with others that of all manufacturers, BMW seems like the one that would have thought of this). In my opinion, it also adds to the overall "look" of the bike in a subtle way. Very easy to install. Impressive engineering and quality. Well worth the investment.

    This should be standard equipment
    A great product! The install is straight forward really only taking minutes. The oil cooler guard affords complete protection for the factory oil cooler and in my opinion enhances the appearance of the bike.

    I agree with Kenneth
    This grill is fantastic, mounts in a few minutes and the fit is perfect. You don\'t things can get in there and cause damage, take a closer look. Since I can\'t yell \"shields up\" and get any results, this will provide your oil cooler some much needed protection

    Why Didn't BMW think of this?
    A common problem with so many 'water and oil cooled' bikes is that there was 'No Protection' for the 'Thin Waffer like' radiators. No matter where you ride when it begins to get warm out you can see on your 'windscreen' (if you have one the amount of 'bugs' you kill. Before this on my 05 K1200GT, I couldn't believe that BMW didn't use something to protect the radiator. I simply went out and got some 'Screen Mesh' and covered it myself. Did the same with my Suzuki GS650F. My 'Run & Fun' Bike! With my K1600GTL, BMW has taken care of the radiator but not the 'oil cooler'. Why Not? Ask them. Fortunately Wunderlich does them 'one better' and now has a well designed and Good Looking Shield to take care of the problem! Installing it took about '20 minutes' and it 'looks good' as do it work as advertised. I'd order one for your GT or GTL 'Right Away'! Caution! If you have some 'bugs' of stones already stuck in the cooler, DON'T try to use a 'screwdriver or the like to remove them. Buy some 'Spray Air'. It works better and is safer for the 'oil cooler'! This isn't a 'should get'. It's a Must Get'
