 MachineartMoto X-Head v3
MachineartMoto X-Head v3
MachineartMoto X-Head for BMW R1200/R1200R 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. 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. Sold in pairs.

Looks to be a very durable product for protecting BMW engine valve covers. They really look good on the bike, but too bad they cannot come in a silver color to match the engine color. The install is not easy. Both sides of the plastic have to come off on a R1200RT to get these covers on. So, plan your time accordingly.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was looking for a good, comfortable helmet with the flip up features. Tried several high end helmets, but found this to be the most comfortable. Was concerned that it was going to be too round, but it is more a round oval and fits snug and comfortably. I measure a medium, but having tried on the N103 in a large, decided on the large. Great choice. Have ridden with the helmet for 2 weeks now and no hot spots. My only dislike is the VPS visor. There is a film on the visor that I cannot seem to keep clear. I guess it is the anti-fog film, but it is not very clear when it is extended.
Yes, I recommend this product.
