AltRider Oil Cooler Guard in Black for the BMW R 1200 GS & GSA
It only takes one unfortunately aimed rock to hit your oil cooler and leave you stuck in the middle of nowhere with an immobilized bike. But the AltRider oil cooler guard for the BMW R1200GS or R1200GS Adventure can prevent this problem by taking the hit so your expensive and critical oil cooler doesn't have to. The AltRider oil cooler guard, shown here in black, is designed to let air flow in but keep rocks, debris or anything else that could damage your oil cooler from getting in. In addition to its obvious practicality, we also happen to think it looks good. The AltRider oil cooler guard is made of lightweight aluminum so it doesn't put undue stress on the beak and installs using pre-attached adhesive. It's also available in silver.
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.
