AvantGuard

AvantGuard R/RS

Now Available!

Avant Guard R/RS_LC is a new kind of front end protection guard for the 2015~2018 R1200 R/RS designed to shield the painted engine, exhaust headers and surrounding surfaces from stone and splash abrasion damage over time.

NOTE: Avant Guard R/RS also fits the 2019~2022 R1250 R/RS, but requires removal of the lower front fairing winglets. Both the Avant Guard and the lower fairing cannot be mounted together.

The R and RS models' front fenders are very short, styled to look light and fast, but are ineffective in containing road debris thrown back by the front tire. Avant Guard R/RS solves the problem by mounting to the engine/chassis behind the front fender.

Avant Guard R/RS covers the full height of the engine, 12.5" (325mm), mounting to two existing screws at the top, and to the bottom of the engine case via an aluminum bracket and M8 bolts. At its widest point, 11.5" (295mm) it partially overlaps the exhaust headers to reduce stone abrasion.

NOTE: LED Driving Lights from BMW, or aftermarket brands like Clearwater can be mounted with Avant Guard R/RS using the MaMo Light Bar kit. MaMo Light Bars are individual left and right sides that bolt to the frame and are satin finish powder coated steel.

BMW's one piece light bracket part #77 51 8 551 341 is not compatible with the Avant Guard R/RS. MaMo Light Bars fit and are $89.00, 50% the cost of BMW's bracket.

Avant Guard R/RS is injection molded 3mm thick nylon, the same tough, impact resistant material used by BMW for many of its parts. It has a fine matte black texture and its shape reflects the form of the engine and the R/RS's bodywork.

MaMo Light Bars

MaMo Light Bars enable fitting LED driving lights from either BMW, or Clearwater Darla -shown here- to the 2015~2018 R1200 R/RS or 2019~2023 1250 R/RS.  MaMo Light Bars fit easily with the AvantGuard engine protector and are a lower cost alternative to BMW's light bracket.

To mount Denali LED Lights, the optional Denali Fender Mount Kit must be purchased separately from Denali.

MaMo Light Bars are individual left and right sides finished in satin black powder coated steel and mount directly to the frame in the same location as BMW's bar. They enable both the benefit of improved LED driving light illumination and the protective benefit of the AvantGuard. Mounting hardware is included.

Fit Compatibility: MaMo Light Bars fit with sufficient clearance to X-Head cylinder guards, BMW crash bars, SW Motech crashbars, and Wunderlich 26440-202 crashbars.

XH R and RS_LC 155x124 x2

X-Head_LC

X-Head 1200_LC cylinder guards fit 2013~2018 R1200 Liquid Cooled models: GS/A, RT, R, RS.

The X-Head1200_LC design benefits from Tough Polymer technology successfully proven in use with the whole X-Head line. With its blend of high impact strength, 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 via 2 stainless steel M5 T25 Torx Head fasteners and one longer T50 bolt. Do Not Re-Use the OEM T-50 bolts. The new T-50 bolts in the kit are made longer to compensate for the thickness of the X-Head covers.

X-Head1200_LC cover 80% 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-Head1200_LC are styled to complement the Liquid-Cooled models & 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_LC fits with crash bars to fill the gaps between the bars protecting heads from rocks and strike angles onto terrain that can get past the bars.

X-Head1200_LC DO FIT with crash bars made by BMW, Alt Rider, and Givi. X-Head 1200_LC do not fit with Hepco & Becker crash bars. NOTE:  Fit and compatibility of BMW or aftermarket brands of crash bars with X-Heads may vary, depending on their manufacturing size accuracy and any running changes the manufacturers may make over time. SW Motech bars fit normally on the right side, and although clearance is less on the left side because of manufacturing tolerance differences side to side, they do fit.

Installation with crash bars: To install X-Heads on R1200 GS/A already fitted with crash bars, the bars will have to be removed to provide enough working room for X-Head installation. Removal is straightforward by removing 3 bolts per side.  If there is any concern about the procedure, it is recommended that removal and re-fitting be done by a qualified BMW technician .
