A Dropped Bike Can Cause Damage

Cylinder Head Guards for the BMW R1250GS

Dings, scratches, scrapes, or even a cracked valve cover can all be results of a simple tip-over on an R1250GS.¬†With its wide boxer-style engine, the valve covers will hit the ground when the bike goes over. Touratech aluminum Cylinder Head Guards offer lightweight and low-profile protection for your BMW’s engine.


We have two versions available! Either made of heavy-duty stainless steel or lightweight 4 mm thick anodized aluminum,¬†these guards install quickly and easily to existing mounting points on your 1250GS’ engine. The design of the head guards follows the original lines of the BMW and the available stainless, silver or black anodized finishes give the bike a sleek look.


For those that want simple and lightweight protection for their R1250GS valve covers and cylinder heads, these guards from Touratech are a great alternative to crash bars or a great addition for those who want the most complete protection possible.
