Constructed of heavy-duty mild steel, SW-MOTECH crashbars are designed to provide maximum protection, optical integration, and high-quality fit and finish.Provides protection to both the fairing and engine without interfering with oil changes or removal of cylinder head covers for valve adjustments.
All components are protected against corrosion by sandblasting and powdercoating.
The metallic silver powdercoated finish has a gloss clear topcoat, providing an additional layer of rust protection and beautifying your ride!
High-strength frame mounting points and 26.9mm diameter mild steel tubing provide heavy duty protection.
Same as the SW-MOTECH crashbars made for Wudo Germany (just a different brand sticker).
The current version of these crashbars has been modified to be compatible with an aftermarket Ohlins front shock and most other aftermarket suspensions.
Item fits BMW R1150GS Adventure only; not for BMW R1150GS model.

"The original BMW R1150GS Adventure crashbars require removing 10 bolts for an oil change (the 4 on the skid plate to engine, 4 connecting the lower crashbars to the uppers, and one on each side for the cross bar). I leave the BMW original lower crashbars attached to the skid plate during an oil change as it is much easier than trying to realign them to the skid plate. There's no crossbar on the SW-MOTECH crashbars for the R1150GS Adventure, just the bottom mount to the skidplate, so I only have to remove 2 bolts for an oil change (better than the 10 bolts for the original BMW crashbars"
