MachineartMoto X-Head for Water Cooled BMW R1200GS / R1200GSA / R1200RT / R1200R / R1200RS 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.

Bought these for my 2014 R1200RT. The instructions are easy to follow, and the install is very simple. I didn't like that look of crash bars on an RT, so opted for the head cover/guard idea, and I think the X heads are the best looking of the bunch.

I bought this jacket to update/replace my aging Tourmaster Intake, which always fit "floppy". This First Gear has a nicer fit, and I appreciate that First Gear is one of the few gear suppliers that sells tall sizes. On a recent 2,000 mile trip to Laguna Seca and back, the Mesh Tex performed well at 100+ degrees with a cooling vest underneath. The one complaint I have with this jacket, and it's a fairly big one, is the collar. My Tourmaster had a nice, soft piece of material on the inside layer, but the First Gear has a shorter collar, and the outer material cuts into my neck. By the time I got to N. Cal from Arizona I had a fairly raw neck. If I find a jacket with a better collar I may sell the First Gear in favor of something that doesn't make me a "redneck".
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am used to wearing heavy duty adventure and MX boots on my GS and Husky, but I needed something a little less clunky for riding our new Vespa. These TCX fit the bill perfectly. They provide some degree of protection while still offering some degree of styling. The fit was accurate. They are comfortable. The slightly worn or distressed look fits in with current fashion as well. The soles appear to be already "pre-stained" as though you wore them around the garage. The laces are a bit long, and good thing there are no peges or foot levers on the scooter to grab them.
All in all I am very happy with this purchase. Would I wear them on my GS? No, but they are great for the Vespa.
Yes, I recommend this product.
