BMW R1200GS Sump Guard
£194.32 (ex. VAT)
This is something I have been toying with for a long time now – it`s a sump guard to fit my 2006 R1200GS. It took the kind nudge from a well reputed BMW specialist distributor to finally prompt me into making something for him and indeed other GS riders.
Once again, I`ve decided to try and take something and make it better. To be honest it is a compromise between practicality and looks and I think I may have the balance right. It certainly does not give the total protection any adventure purist may wish for but in my mind it gives much more protection than the standard BMW OEM sump guard and I feel it will meet the needs of 99% of GS users. I would personally rate it as a good `medium` level of protection.
As always, it is far from mass produced and each one is hand finished by me. No two are ever the same. It is made from 2mm thick stainless steel which gives advantages over thicker aluminium guards as it is simply more beautiful to look at and will not suffer from the corrosion aluminium suffers from. Being stainless it`s bloody expensive, difficult to work yet gives great abrasion resistance and will always look good.
There is no drilling as it uses all the existing mounting points and fasteners. If, however, you find that the fasteners on your bike are in poor condition send me an email and I`ll send you some stainless replacements. It comes with my usual `biker friendly` instructions but if you get stuck then give me a call. It is also supplied with a stainless machined spacer which you will need for one of the front fixing points.
It is very easy to fit and can be fitted by itself or with the standard front crud catcher. I`ve put two holes in the front of the sump guard if you should wish to bolt the two together. Alternatively I do a `shortie` front crud if you should prefer that – just send your old standard front crud back to me and I’ll send you a `shortie` with my compliments.
The images show it fitted by itself, with the front crud catcher and with the `shortie` front crud catcher.
Don`t forget - all my stuff is sent out either recorded delivery or international signed for - this work of art will be no exception!
