AltRider Crash Bars for the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure

be the first to review...

AltRider has adapted crash bars for the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure model designed to work with the BWM OEM upper crash bars. The crash bars utilize 1.25 inch (31.75 mm) O.D. stainless steel tubing making them the largest diameter bars on the market. The decision to increase the diameter came from years of research and production results. The West Coast BMW Off-Road Training School has been outfitting their bikes with AltRider gear for the past several years. This real world testing yielded much insight on how much damage large bikes can do during crashes. 1 inch bars (25.4 mm) allow a significant amount of flex during a crash creating the need to space them farther from the bike. The stout 1.25 inch (31.75 mm) bars allow a tighter profile while still providing real protection and the ability to mount the OEM BMW R 1250 GS Adventure utilizing an Altrider custom clamp solution. Available in a bead-blasted stainless silver they're extremely resistant to rust whether you’re riding the liquid cooled GS across the highway or across a river.

  • Includes mounting option for OEM upper crash bars
  • 100% designed and manufactured in the USA
  • 1.25 inch (31.75 mm) stainless steel tubing
  • 5-axis laser cut and hand TIG welded joints
  • Custom machined M12 engine through-bolt heat treated and plated to Grade 8
  • 40 mm flange mount design increases strength exponentially
  • 3/16 inch (4.76 mm) lower flanges integrate with AltRider skid plate
  • Weight: 12.2 lbs (5.5 kg)
  • Available in bead-blasted stainless silver
  • Bead-blasted stainless (silver) bars do not match the BMW electropolish silver upper bars

The top of the bars are secured in a total of three locations per side. The front mount is the only one on the market designed to utilize two bolts per side to increase the ability to distribute the load of any impact. The rear is held with a custom machined through-bolt that replaces the engine mount hardware -- increasing strength of the bars up to 25%. AltRider offers one of only a few designs that utilize a custom machined through-bolt. There are no plastic spacers to break upon impact. This creates an incredibly strong design that distributes any impact evenly throughout the bars and also makes a solid foundation for BMW R1250 GS Adventure OEM upper crash bars.

Another first for AltRider crash bars are the integrated 3/16 inch (4.76 mm) lower flanges designed to interface with an AltRider skid plate. This creates a modular protection system that doesn’t mount directly to the motor and is substantially more robust than anything else on the market.

Other bars are fabricated by crimping then welding joints creating a forced fit with a weak bond. In this method gaps are created which are later filled with weld. The additional heat causes warpage and all-too-common installation difficulties. All AltRider joints are 5-axis laser cut creating a perfect union before the bars are hand TIG welded in a jig. This process creates a precision fit easy installation and superior strength. Using only the best manufacturing techniques means all AtlRider motorcycle accessories are of the highest quality ensuring the best protection for your adventure bike.

  • Compatible with R 1250 GS Adventure
  • Fitment is NOT guaranteed with the Option 719 cylinder head covers. The bars make contact with the Option 719 cylinder head covers on the lower right side.

  • NOT compatible with SW-Motech skid plate
  • NOT compatible with TourTech Rally form Skid plate
