The addition of a radiator on the R 1200 GSW has generated a lot of excitement for BMW’s respected adventure bike. Protect the new component with an AltRider Radiator Guard.
Made from 1/16” (1.6 mm) anodized aluminum, the radiator guard prevents sticks and other dangers from puncturing the heart of the cooling system. Specially designed louvers deflect errant debris, while simultaneously directing airflow through the radiator to keep the water boxer cool. The guard is held in place using OEM hardware and the stock radiator shroud. Installation is a breeze – simply remove the three bolts holding the shroud in place, insert the guard, and reinstall the shroud. There are no spacers to deal with or hardware to add, and no need to remove the fairings. The perfect geometry of the guard exactly matches the contours of the shroud creating an exceptionally strong yet simple mount.
Keep the 560 pound (250 Kg) R1200GS liquid cooled from crushing the radiator in the event of a crash with AltRider Upper and Lower Crash Bars.
