Crash Bars for R1250GS

Hello there, I am new to the forum and hope you are all doing great. I owned a F800ST for 10 years and recently traded it in for a new R1250GS. I literally just put the first 150 miles in the past two days with a combination of highway and country roads. This is simply a dream bike.

I am in the process of selecting crash bars for the cylinder heads and also upper side areas. I am looking at the SW-Motech which look really great but they may be too much for my riding needs as I am not planning to do any dirt riding (I know..sorry about that) as I mainly ride on asphalt.

The crash protection I am looking for is mainly for advanced training at the (asphalt) range and the...rarely...oops I dropped the bike on the driveway.

I was thinking of the Wunderlich lower crash bars which look less bulky and lighter than anything else I have seen. Should I forgo the upper side areas crash bars? I figure the less weight up there the better...right?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Crash Bars for R1250GS

Both SW Motech & Wunderlich guards look great. Personally, I like the clean design of the Wunderlich product.

Looks like Wunderlich offers two sets of engine bars for the 1250 GS. One's called the Sport.
Wundering which you are looking at?

Their info says it's for the 1250 but it shows a 1200. If you order, you may wish to call and confirm if it will fit.

Interesting, the only option I get is the color. So I like the stainless still but look similar to the picture above posted by Mike except that is made for the 1250 GS.

Dave, I cannot open your link but I think this is what you referenced: Wunderlich R1250 Sport Engine Bars (#31740302-304) Oil and Water Cooled (1994 to present) 31740302-304 | BMW Wunderlich America

If not, my apology.

Mike

Yep that is it. My bad with the link I posted. There are a couple spaces in the link that should not be there.

I've been looking closely at the Altrider bars. They appear to have a very solid design. I'm mostly into twisty roads, but I may take mine off road eventually. I'll probably add the upper crash bars later. Made in the USA, too.

Any pros/cons for Altrider bars?

Thanks Dave, I had not seen the sports option and they are pretty nice too.
