BMW R1200GS Heel Guard
After a long enough wait I have finally managed to perfect my next product for the R1200GS, namely the heel guard!
The standard BMW one is absolutely fine and is most certainly fit for purpose however I did see 3 areas in which I could possibly improve on a very good design anyway.
Firstly I designed my heel guard to `drop` about 20mm lower which has further protected the master cylinder linkage. If you compare the stock one to mine you will see the difference.
Secondly I used a tougher material, 1.2mm thick stainless steel grade 304, which has resulted in a much more abrasion resistant surface. My standard BMW heel guard on my very own low mileage R1200GS has shown signs of wear already.
Lastly by using laser cutting technology I have improved on the `formed blank` of the standard BMW heel guard and have managed to produce a much `tighter` fit.
It is easy to fit, polishes up very well and can be supplied with a plain surface or a slotted surface as shown on the ones displayed on my own R1200GS.
So, all in all, I think this is an improvement on what is already a brilliant part!
PLEASE SPECIFY IF YOU WANT SLOTTED OR BLANK OTHERWISE I WILL PRESUME YOU WOULD LIKE THE ONE IN THE MAIN PICTURE i.e. SLOTTED. Thanks
