AltRider Engine Protection Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GT/GTL Fits K1600GT 2011+ K1600GTL 2011-2012 For K1600 GTL 2013 and newer use AltRider Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GTL 2013+ The BMW K1600 GT/GTL is a beast of a bike that requires hefty support to stand up to its size. This beauty has been receiving glowing reviews and RevZilla is proud to carry AltRider's quality engine protection bars. AltRiders in-house design team took a careful analysis of the center of gravity and the ability to distribute the robust load on impact. In the case of an accidental tip-over, the cross bar distributes the load from one side to the other, relieving pressure from the existing mounting points to the other side of the bike. The connector bar adds significant strength to the design, effectively connecting into the threaded and blind boss on each side which provides 2 more locations for distributing impact. The assembly for these engine protection bars is moved out 1.75 and up 2 from the original OEM design. Three reasons for this unique design change A light mounting system (LED AUX light) is now incorporated into the engine protection bars, bringing the light set near the crevice of the bar for protection. In the case of an accident, your light is safe from hazards! (lights are sold separately) This design provides a higher resting angle when the bike is on its side, allowing a rider to pick the bike up after it falls on its side. Unlike boxer motors, the K1600 will lie almost flat making it difficult to even pick up the bike. The higher point of the bar will stop the bike from rolling over further, making it manageable for a single operator to upright the bike. This will minimize the damage to the upper fairings, windshield, mirrors, and handlebars. The current OEM engine bars are placed very low on the frame and become a pivot point causing a falling bike to continue to topple over onto the upper fairings. AltRider's design halts this problem with the enlargement of the AltRider bars, preventing the bike from rolling over further in any crash or stationary drop. AltRider Engine Protection Bars will keep your K1600 in top shape while providing the much needed coverage in the case of spills and stationary drops. Features Manufactured in America Stunning shot peen finish in silver or black Precision manufactured mounts bolts up effortlessly Hand TIG welded, yielding extra strength Quality stainless construction resists rust or oxidation 1 inch stainless steel tubing Integrated driving light mounts ( lights sold separately )

They installed very easily. The video was a lot better than the paper instructions. Everything went smoothly and they look awesome. They look like they were designed with, not for, the bike.

I bought this set after reading the reviews on here and every positive comment I read was correct. Very easy to install (On an Arai and Shoei helmet). Easy pairing and they seem to last a real long time on a single charge. Paired quickly to my bike, a BMW K1600GTL. We bought it for the intercom and it works excellent at all speeds. It probably saved our lives the other evening when a deer decided to jump out in front of us going up a mountain at 55mph. Hearing my wife yell "Deer!! Deer!!" allowed me just enough time to throttle down and have the deer jump not more than a foot in front of us. I never saw it coming. Worth every cent.
Yes, I recommend this product.
