AltRider Oil Cooler Guard in Black for the BMW R 1200 GS & GSA
The AltRider oil cooler cover tucks neatly inside the beak of the BMW R 1200 GS & GSA, providing protection for the critical and expensive oil cooler. The lightweight, louvered design allows maximum air flow while protecting against rocks, road debris and the occasional branch.
Pre-attached adhesive pads on the guard ensure that it installs in the most effective location, using predetermined places on the oil cooler. The beak of the R 1200 GS wasnít made to carry weight or stress, so itís essential to correctly install the cooler guard. Thatís why we designed ours so it was nearly impossible to install it any other way.
Clean lines and an aggressive look give this oil cooler guard a distinct appeal that complements and protects your R 1200 GS & GSA.
Save yourself hassle and frustration Ė and the purchase of a new $330 oil cooler Ė by installing the AltRider oil cooler guard.
Update: Adventure Designs co-owner, Chad Olson, is now a firm believer in oil cooler guards. He installed one on his 1200GSA and upon return from a trip he noticed a very large dent in his oil cooler guard. During his ride he must have been hit by a large rock. If he did not have the oil cooler guard in place, he certainly would have had a major radiator failure and fluid leak. His investment in the oil cooler guard saved him from paying for a expensive new radiator and spared an abrupt end to his trip in the middle of nowhere.
