MachineartMoto X-Head for BMW R1200/R1200R Fits all 2005-2009 R1200 hexhead models and 2010 R1200R. GS, RT, R, ST, MegaMoto, HP-2 X-Head Cylinder Guards provide wide coverage in a tough, 5mm thick stylish shape that protects the vulnerable magnesium valve covers of R1200 hexhead engines. When a bike is dropped, even at a standstill, a cylinder first hits the ground at its front corner, then rolls onto its face before settling back down on the lower edge. The wide coverage X-Head design protects both the valve and spark plug covers. Openings in the face are designed-in to provide air flow over the valve cover, while the molded-in texture at the bottom will help hide minor abrasion. X-Heads are molded in a high temperature resistant nylon and installation takes five minutes - slightly longer on RTs - with included stainless steel bolts. The bolt threads are coated with Nyloc thread locking patch to keep the bolts from loosening. X-Heads fit with BMW OEM, Touratech, SW Motech, Adventure Designs crash bar extensions and Hepco Becker crash bars. They do not fit with Z-Tecknik bars. If your bars fit BMW's OEM cylinder guards, they will fit with the X-Heads. If your crash bars have had an impact, check that there is still a minimum of 15mm clearance between the crash bars and the X-Heads. S old in pairs.
