The BMW R 1200 GSW is the latest evolution of the iconic adventure bike. Built to travel the world on the road and off, the hefty bike is bound to have a tip over sooner or later. Protect your upper fairings and radiator from adventure-ending damage with upper crash bars from AltRider.
The upper crash bars use specially designed aluminum fastening blocks to mount to the AltRider lower crash bars to provide a robust base. A 3rd mounting point underneath the front beak of the motorcycle ensures the upper crash bars can take the toughest of hits while providing complete protection for your upper fairings and radiator. The upper crash bars are mandrel bent from 1 inch (25.4 mm) stainless steel tubing and are available in a shot peen satin, black powder coat, triple black (grey) powder coat and blue powder coat finish.
AltRider upper crash bars utilize the same mounting location as the BMW auxiliary LED's. To mount the auxiliary lights with the AltRider upper crash bars, see the AltRider OEM Light Mount Brackets.

Because powder coat is baked-on plastic, not wet paint, the blue is not a direct perfect match for the frame paint color
