The AvantGuard and MudSling R1200 R/RS_LC bundle are a matched set designed to protect vulnerable surrounding parts from rock throw-back, tar, and mud accumulation. Learn more about both components below:
The 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.
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.
The new MudSling™ R1200 R/RS_LC is designed to protect these bikes' wide open suspension area and assorted underseat components from stone chip damage and mud accumulation. Protect your brand new ride from the start.
MudSling's effective coverage area is 8.5" wide x 16", protecting the Paralever arm, shock absorber, and electronics module, while reducing splash out to the sides onto riders' legs. It provides broad area coverage while looking slender from the side and well integrated with the R/RS bikes' styling.
MudSling™ is precision injection molded in resilient polypropylene with a fine texture matching other plastic part surfaces on the R/RS. It mounts with one screw to a frame component and is further secured to the frame rails with nylon zip ties. See the installation video link below to see how easy it is to install.
