AvantGuard

AvantGuard R/RS

AvantGuard is a new kind of front end protection product for the R1200 R/RS designed to shield the painted engine, exhaust headers and surrounding surfaces from stone and splash abrasion damage over time.

The R and RS models' front fenders are very short, styled to look light and fast, but ineffective in containing road debris thrown back by the front tire. The front fenders are also very flexible - not stable enough to serve as a proper mount for a long fender extension. AvantGuard solves the problem by mounting to the engine/chassis behind the front fender.

AvantGuard 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 AvantGuard 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 AvantGuard. MaMo Light Bars are $79.00, 50% the cost of BMW's bracket.

***At present, MaMo Light Bars fit with X-Head_LC cylinder guards but do not fit with BMW's OE crash bars.  We will have crash bar compatible Light Bars in early to mid-November 2016.

AvantGuard 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.

XH R and RS_LC 155x124 x2

X-Head_LC

X-Head_LC cylinder guards for all Liquid Cooled models.

The X-Head_LC design benefits from "SuperTough" nylon technology successfully proven in use with the X-Head DOHC and SOHC models. 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 T50 bolt.

X-Head_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-Head_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-Heads do not fit with Hepco & Becker crash bars. X-Heads have been successfully fitted with crash bars made by BMW, Touratech, SW Motech and Alt Rider.  NOTE: Fit and compatibility of BMW or aftermarket crash bars with X-Heads may vary, depending on their manufacturing size accuracy and any running changes the manufacturers may have made over time.

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