This part is unnecessary with and does not fit the new 2018 full LED option digital display. 
It will still fit the standard 2018 analogue clocks.

This was a project I took on to help some of us riders on the UKGSER forum (a good forum by the way). Some of the lads clocks had been stolen because BMW (in their infinite wisdom) had decided to secure the clocks with a very easily removed plastic clip. Consequently we were having our clocks stolen.

The replacement cost, from a BMW dealer, is in excess of £600 for the digital display unit!

So, I`ve designed a brace which fits over the clocks and secures onto 2 inner locating points on the left and right hand screen height adjusting assemblies. The brace then fits snugly around the outside of the clocks stopping them from being so easily removed. In fact tools would be required to remove the brace and its my opinion that the brace will deter most thieving scum who were hoping for a very easy and quick theft!

The brackets either side of the brace are slotted to allow a small amount of movement to accommodate the different inside dimensions of the screen height adjusting assemblies - this is because on the TE model the bike also includes the `satnav preparation` bracket which reduces this inner dimension. All you have to do is, depending on model, slightly adjust the side brackets to suit the internal gap - you will see what I mean when you come to fit the brace.

It`s made from 2mm thick black powder coated stainless and in  my opinion is quite substantial, it comes with fasteners and also some neoprene strips to position between the brace and the plastic surround of the clocks to stop it marking the plastic and rattling against it from vibration.

Hopefully, for a relatively small amount, this brace will deter most thefts.
