Not sure what you mean by hefty; it's a rather light & flexible (but very strong) cover. It weighs next to nothing...

But cleaning it is very easy; a little soap and water, and done.

I have a month old R1250GS HP, in Highlands Ranch, CO. You need to suck it up and get protection. I did a clear bra for the headlight, about $25, plus a wire mesh light protector which I love, maybe $150 or so - cant remember. Might be overkill, but ive heard a broken light can be $1200 to replace! You can get them from altrider, or touratech. But I suggest you ask your dealer as their prices are almost always just as good, or better than internet. Try BMW of Denver, ask for Matt, the parts mgr. Get some other cool stuff, altrider footstand extender, bmw lower crash bars, upper bars if you want, and clearwater darla lights for safety, rox risers for more comfy standing position offroad, bmw enduro bash plate, alt rider radiator protection, bmw nav 6, panniers, i like the vario expanding ones, and i love the touratech, expanding tail bag - you take off the rear seat and it locks in place of it without straps or bungees! Kinda pricey but worth it!

Re headlight guard

I bought this one. Works great, clean fit, easy to maintain and doesnt reduce headlight beam.

I have a 2018 GSA with the Rizoma headlight cover. Once mounted the mount doesn't come off with out tools but the headlight light cover comes off without tools for cleaning. Works and looks good.

I went with the BMW radiator guards. They are not expensive(about $44 the pair) and do as much as you need. I was told to be careful with metal radiator guards as they can cause corrosion due to different metals. The guards are one of the few item BMW sells that is actually a decent price. I went with the Puig light protector. Haven't received it yet but it looks pretty good at a decent price. I think it was $85
