Cover your 1200 GS with X-Heads

Owners of the latest BMW R 1200 GS/Adventure LC models can add a little extra 'travel insurance' to their rides, thanks to Machine Art's X-Head guards.

Designed to protect the boxer engine's exposed valve and spark plug covers, X-Heads help prevent the costly repairs and delays to trips, often caused by low speed and static tumbles.

Unlike conventional engine bars or crash bungs, which can leave areas unprotected, X-Heads wrap around each cylinder, covering 80% of the surface and protecting the mid-section, in addition to the bottom/front initial impact area. They also act as a barrier against flying debris – especially important when tackling trails and other loose surfaces.

X-Heads feature a tough outer shell, made from an injection-moulded polycarbonate, mixed to offer high strength and flex under impact. Inside, a thermoplastic rubber liner sits against the face of the cylinder, helping to dissipate any impact and prevent 'hard contact' with the ground. Each side mounts via two stainless steel M5 T25 Torx Head fasteners and one existing T50 bolt.

They will also fit the R 1200 RT LC (2014 on), R 1200 R (2015 model) and R 1200 RS.
