MachineArtMoto X-Head Cylinder Guards for LIQUID COOLED R1200GS, R1200GSA, & R1200RT Motorcycles
The new X-Head_LC design for the R1200GS/A and R1200RT 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 existing 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.
For GS off-road riding, X-Head_LC complement BMW’s crash bars to protect heads from rocks and strike angles onto terrain that can get past the bars. X-Head_LC are styled to complement the the Liquid-Cooled models & are the best choice for riders who do not like the look of crash bars, especially on an RT.
