Advance Guard

ADVance Guard




Slipscreen GS/A is the comfort solution for off-road and hot weather riding when minimal physical obstruction and maximum airflow are a comfort advantage.

Slipscreen is easy to swap with the stock windscreen using just two existing screws. There are no front surface fasteners for a clean look and it's appearance reflects the GS's angular styling. When cold weather returns, the swap back to the stock screen is equally easy with just two screws.

Slipscreen is precision injection molded in Polycarbonate, and the height adjustability feature is retained, covering the Navigator GPS unit in its low setting while extending 2.5" above it in its highest position. Black is the new standard color.

GS off-road riding schools instruct students to "look up - don't fixate on the front end". At 10.5" tall, Slipscreen's size is unobtrusive while its opaque color encourages keeping eyes looking forward, not down.

X-Head 1250

The new X-Head 1250 cylinder head guards for all 2019/2021 Shift Cam engine models continue the Tough Polymer protective technology that's been successfully proven in use over three generations of X-Heads.

Designed for the GS, GSA, RT, R, and RS, X-Head's thick, high impact strength injection molded shell is slightly ductile to prevent breakage. In between the shell and the cylinder head is a thick thermoplastic rubber liner that aids in dissipating impact force while preventing hard contact. Each side mounts easily with 3 stainless steel M5 T25 Torx Head screws provided.

X-Head 1250 covers 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 and fit perfectly with BMW's crash bars. For off-road riding they fill the vulnerable spaces in-between the bars to protect heads from rocks and strike angles on terrain that can get past the crash bars.

Fitment 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, bolts on procedure.

X-Head 1250 are here to protect - and look good in the process!

2 12GS AV_LC


The AVANT GS_LC front fender extension for 2013~2018 R1200GS/ADV and the 2019~2021 R1250GS/A is designed for "no drill"  installation to protect the painted front engine surface and the exhaust headers vulnerable to premature chipping from road debris and coating with tar and mud. AVANT helps control this environmental assault, increasing longevity and reducing clean-up.

The Avant installs in three minutes with two self-locking screw clamps that grip the underside of the fender, as well as engaging the tip of the fender for a secure fit. AVANT_LC can be easily removed for transfer to another bike in the future without leaving disfiguring holes behind.

Injection molded in tough polypropylene, AVANT fits perfectly and its texture matches the stock BMW fender. It is shown in the photos with BMW's optional Enduro Skid Plate fitted to the standard GS.

FITMENT:   AVANT GS_LC fits the 2014+ GS/A with BMW's standard skid plate. AVANTdoes NOT FIT the 2019~2021 Adventure with the optional Enduro Skid Plate - part #77148533747. To enable longer suspension travel on the ADV, front end caster angle was changed reducing clearance between the AVANT GS_LC and the Enduro plate.

Two aftermarket skid plates verified to fit with the AVANT on the GS/A are from Wunderlich, shown  in one of the photos here, and the Touratech Expedition plate.

The following skid plate DOES NOT FIT with the AVANT_LC:  Black Dog.  Alt Rider and SW Motech skid plates do fit the standard GS, but not the GSA.   We are testing other skid plates over time and will post them in our BLOGROLL.

MudSling™ GS_LC rear suspension guard fits BMW 2013~20 R1200/1250GS & 2014~21 R1200/1250GSA models and protects the rear shock and surrounding areas from stone damage, mud  and tar accumulation. MudSling™ mounts to the existing short inner fender and to the sides of the frame and in between the rear tire and suspension, increasing the surface width to each side up to 3" and downwards 7" for a total of 200% more coverage area than stock.

MudSling™_LC is injection molded in resilient polypropylene with a fine texture matching other molded surfaces on the GS. It is precisely shaped to engage the bottom of the existing fender and fits tightly against the frame where it is secured. Installation takes less than 5 minutes.

MudSling™ fits with BMW stock pannier mounts for both the GS and ADV, as well as Touratech Zega Pro and SW Motech. It does not fit with Hepco Becker, and Jesse Odessey II mounts.

MudSling_LC fits best with the standard fitment street biased tires on both the R1200/1250 GS and GSA:  Metzler Tourance Next, Michelin Anakee, Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A41R and Pirelli Rallye STR. There are a limited number of knobby tires that fit, depending on whether mounted to a GS or GSA. This is due to differences in tire cross-section shapes and diameters as there is not much clearance between the rear tire and the Paralever on the GSA.  Refer to the following basic guide for knobby fit with MudSling:

Knobbies that FIT GS:  Michelin Anakee Wild; Continental TKC80;  NOT FIT GS: Mitas 07; Shinko 805; Hidenau 60 Scout.

Knobbies that FIT GSA: Michelin Anakee Wild:  NOT FIT GSA: Continental TKC-70; TKC-80; Mitas 07; Shinko 805; Hidenau 60 Scout.  Tire fit is subject to variables that may affect your actual installation.

MudSling™GS continues the tradition of enhanced functionality, attention to detail, and quality appearance.

ADVance Guards fit the most popular brands of Adventure Touring  motorcycles and are the most versatile and effective hand guards available. Fitments to more brands and models will be introduced over time.

Adjustable Wind Protection
ADV and Dual Sport riders must adapt to a wide variety of environmental and weather conditions – from highway to single track, hot temperature in the dirt, warm air in the countryside, or driving rain and cold temperatures on the interstate. The ADVance Guard height adjustable Sliding Shield and removable front Insert enable you to easily adapt to prevailing conditions without the need for tools.

Aluminum Twin Spar Frame
The wide twin spar frame is designed to provide broad coverage and be easily configured. With or without the front Insert installed, the Frame covers not only the hands, but also the control levers and switches. Used by itself without the Insert or Adjustable Shield attached, the open center permits cooling air flow. The Frame mounts to the bar end and at a second point to the handlebar with forged aluminum Mounts shaped to clear control cables for different motorcycle models.

ADVance is an assembly of 3 main components:

  1. A Twin Spar Frame with an open airflow front.
  2. An Insert that snaps into the open front.
  3. A Sliding Shield that is adjustable up and down 50mm.

Fully extended vertical coverage is 142mm. With the Shield’s in its open front configuration, ADVance Guard’s height is 98mm.  Shield adjustments must made while the bike is stationary.

The Insert and Sliding Shield are injection molded in a resilient polymer and are easily attached or removed from  the aluminum Frame.

Currently available to fit BMW, Honda Africa Twin, and Triumph Tiger. Fitment Kits contain handlebar mounts, bar end spacers and bolts to custom fit each respective model. Additional brands and models will be added over time.

NOTE: ADVance Guards only fit motorcycles with a continuous tubular handlebar, whether its an aluminum taper bar or 7/8” steel bar.  It does not fit multi-piece bars that are cast  aluminum with short tube handlebar assemblies as used on many touring and sport touring models, such as the BMW R1200 RT, and RS.
