BUNDLE (10% OFF) - R1250GS/A Radiator Protectors + 'Quick Release)' LED Headlight Guard

BMW R1250GS/A Radiator Protectors (Also fits Rallye) ​​​     - Normally £121.00


These are an evolution of the original protectors designed for the R1200GS but now modified for the R1250GS/A models, including the Rallye.

Every now and then I come up with what I believe is not only a useful bit of kit but also a work of art. These radiator protectors are absolutely lovely (I guess I would say that but they are!). I tried several designs before I settled on this one, they happen to be the most visually stunning, complex, the most difficult and longest to make. Each part is hand smoothed to give it a quality feel and individual finish - no two are the same.

In the image you can see Mike holding the original and ours out in front of him, now the R1250 is a bloody lovely bike... the OEM radiator protectors unfortunately, are not... we found them to be plastic, weak and would bend easily in your hand. We make ours out of 1.2mm stainless steel and they are solid.

To get to the final design I took what I considered to be the best (and most expensive) on the market and tried to improve on it. Certainly, the best on the market was very well made but I figured I could improve on the fit which surprisingly wasn`t as good as I might have expected from the market leader. My radiator protectors fit very well indeed.

I also have tried to improve on the function - most radiator protectors tend to lay `flat` against the cooling surface so I designed the protector to have panels which can be formed `out`. What this does is improve on the airflow (by pushing the protecting surface away from the cooling surface) and also afford a good level of protection. What this design also does is allow any impact to be absorbed by the panel, as it springs in, rather than transmit the full impact energy directly to the radiator. The panels can be reset using the supplied angle checker.

Although the protectors do not cover 100% of the radiator I feel that I have reached a very good compromise between maximum cooling and not unreasonable protection.

They are made from high quality stainless steel and are made individually by craftsmen - myself, Mick or Aaron - these items are not mass produced yet made with love, care and pride in Great Britain!

They come with full fitting instructions written by bikers for bikers. They are easy to fit, using the current fasteners and 3 fastening points.

Top Tip!: Some might not need it, but if your guard rattles against the radiator, try affixing the little bits of foam we provide, that should sort it!

R1250GS 'Quick Release' LED Headlight Guard (Also fits Rallye)     - Normally £60.50

This is an evolution of the original version of our headlight guard, now for the R1250GS/A. It is designed to significantly reduce damage to the headlight whilst maintaining a high degree of illumination.

Its shown fitted to my very own R1250GS Rallye but it also fits the standard GS as well.

Its made from 2m thick stainless steel which is then powder coated black to add to its durability.

It fits onto 4 existing fastening points being the headlight and the deflector anchorage points and does not take very long to fit. It comes with good instructions and all fasteners needed for assembly - all in stainless of course.

​​​​​​Mike tinkered and spoke with many of our customers and fellow bikers, he figured that we can update our current design to be able us to incorporate a new type of "quick release" variant using thumb screws for easy removal of the front of the guard. This allows for easy cleaning of both the guard itself and the headlight, which from feedback given, most of our customers reported they wanted.
