Verholen Cylinder Head Protectors - BMW R1200GS, R1200R, R1200RT, R1200S, R1200ST
If you are looking for an alternative to plastic BMW cylinder head protectors, check out these super-strong protection pieces from Verholen. They are made from a high-grade steel to offer super protection similar to the protectors offered for the R1200GS Adventure. These are simply the strongest cylinder protectors short of a full crash bar. (They also come with some neat "R1200" decals.)
Where Plastic cylinder protectors made do their job only when your stationary motorcycle falls down or when you go down on a soft surface. Even then, plastic protectors are likely to be scratched or broken and must be replaced. If your motorcycle goes down while moving, plastic protectors can fail because of the weight and force of the load. In the end, the parts which the protectors are designed to protect are destroyed.
Crash bars also have some down sides. They're time consuming and expensive to install (or uninstall). They affect your bikes' aerodynamics and make it look bulky and wider. They're best suited to enduro bikes.
Verholen cylinder protectors are made from 2mm strong, high-grade steel which mount to existing points on the cylinder head cover, are generously sized and include a heat-resistant silicon buffer.
- Benfits include:
- Rub through is practically impossible.
