Engine Guard Extensions for BMW R1200GSAdventure 2006-2013 by Adventure Designs. Stainless Steel. MADE IN USA
Your BMW R1200 GS Adventure's boxer engine is a huge part of what makes it such a great adventure-touring motorcycle, but it also creates vulnerability. Even in a low-speed, off-road tipover, the cylinder head can be scratched, cracked or bent, leading to oil leaks or, even worse, damage to the valve train. This happened to Adventure Designs co-owner Chad Olson when he went down during an off-road competition, causing extensive damage that ended his ride. Engine guards in front of the cylinder only provide so much protection. Adventure Designs has created a higher level of protection with stainless steel engine guard extensions that fit R1200GS Adventure models from 2006 on. Designed by Adventure Designs and made in the United States of high-quality stainless steel, the engine guard extensions provide more impact protection than aluminum valve guards. The engine guard extensions strengthen the entire assembly by adding more protection from side impacts. They're designed to look right on your BMW R1200GSA and are smart insurance for any bike that ventures off road.
Adventure Designs co/owner Chad Olson, went down hard at low speed on his R1200GSA during an off-road competition and cracked the cylinder valve cover and completely mangled the aluminum BMW OEM valve cover guard. The damage was costly and ended his trip. Do not let this happen to you. Our engine guard extensions protect your cylinder valve covers and help prevent the costly expenditure of repairing a cracked valve cover or worse. The cylinder valve cover is the first place that makes contact with the ground when you fall to the side and that is usually where you fall 90% of the time.
The engine guard extensions provide the needed additional protection for the cylinder valve cover and also serves to strengthen the entire engine bar assembly. The guards are the only engine guard extensions on the market that utilize a strong stainless steel clamp to attach to the existing engine bars. The stainless steel clamps ensure a secure fit and match the overall look of the motorcycle. The lower strut of the guard extensions also provides protection for the lower spark plug, located in the bottom of the cylinder head.
These quality engine bar extensions are designed and built by Adventure Designs in the USA. We have tested them extensively. The bars are constructed completely of stainless steel. They are a perfect color match to the BMW OEM Engine Bars and look like a factory original part when installed. Customers have been very happy with the fit and finish.

Ok, I admit it, I drop my GSA frequently. I have dumped it in the mud, on dirt roads and the latest time I got ejected into the desert while blasting down a gravel road in the middle of Nevada. The bike landed with the left cylinder buried in the gravel on the side of the road. And since I have the Adventure Designs Engine Guard Extensions, not a scratch on my stock valve covers.
After numerous falls I have some deep gouges in the Engine Guard Extensions, but they are barely noticeable and you have to crawl under the bike to see them.
I would have spent way more replacing my valve covers than the cost of the Engine Guard Extensions. They are a great investment in protecting your bike from a ride ending punctured valve cover.
The Adventure Designs Engine Guard Extensions should be the first farkle you buy for your new bike!"

"I just received your engine guards. They are excellent!! They fit well, look good, and you cannot tell they are not original equipment. As a member of the Canadian Military, many of us are into bikes. I think you will see a lot of business from up here."
