The new X-Head 1250 cylinder head guards for all 2019 Shift Cam engine models are available for pre-order with expected shipping dates in early to mid July.
The key to X-Head 1250's protective performance is SuperTough polymer technology successfully proven in use over three generations of X-Heads - 1200 Liquid-Cooled, DOHC and SOHC models. With its blend of high impact strength, and temperature and UV stabilization, the injection molded shell is designed to be slightly ductile in impact to prevent breakage. On the inside of the shell is a thermoplastic rubber liner that rests against the face of the cylinder to aid in dissipating impact force while preventing hard contact. Each side mounts easily with 3 stainless steel M5 T25 Torx Head screws.
X-Head 1250 cover 70% of the face of the head to protect not only the bottom/front initial impact area, but also the mid part of the cylinder head. Even in a stationary drop, inertia can cause a bike to roll partially onto the face of the head before it settles down.
X-Head 1250 are styled to complement the Shift Cam engines & are the best choice for riders who do not like the look of crash bars, especially on an RT, R, and RS. For GS off-road riding, X-Head 1250 fits perfectly with BMW's crash bars and fill the vulnerable spaces in-between the bars to protect heads from rocks and strike angles onto terrain that can get past the crash bars.
X-Head fit with aftermarket brands of crash bars may vary, depending on the amount of clearance available between them and the cylinder head surfaces. To install X-Heads on bikes already fitted with crash bars, the bars will have to be removed to provide enough working room for X-Head installation. It is a straightforward bolts off, bolt on procedure.
