Yeah, it’s mainly plastic. Mine has a metal plate across the bottom as I mentioned. I measured it at 3mm thick. Maybe that comes from Clearwater as it looks like the OEM lights mount up in the bar using that side screw.
Thanks for the Pics, Bro. I think with a little more effort Clearwater could have just made a steel plate complete and not use the plastic at all.
But thats for a GS I presume, anything for a GSA going into that same area?
It’s funny you say that because I remember seeing somewhere that they were offering a “GSA bar”. Turns out this is the case. Looks to be all steel. I don’t know why they aren’t offering it with the GS kits because it certainly looks more robust. My own preference is to have the lights underslung so there’s a little more separation from the headlight.
I've seen both the Clearwater and Denali light bars on a shifty GSA, I don't think you can go wrong with either. I personally prefer the Denali light bar which is what I run on my GSA with two Ericas mounted.
We run both nearly identical systems from Clearwater and Denali and I agree, they’re both great lighting systems in their own right. I like Denali’s Mac Software via EZCAN which makes it easier to setup the lights versus Clearwater’s ‘button dance’ to configure it. That’s the only downside to Clearwater.
Does anyone have recommendations on bar risers?
OK Gotta ask. This is for what exactly???
Happy with SW Motech risers, 32mm up, 25mm back.
Those look nice, did you have to reroute your wires? Any limitations on the range of motion? I'm considering going straight up, unless there's a benefit of going back. I'm 6'3
No issues, no moving cable, full range.
Says they wouldn’t work on a regular GS, any reason for that?
I think it's a fitment issue, there's another model for the GS https://denalielectronics.com/products/driving-light-mount-bmw-r1250gs-19-19
Oddly I never received an alert, so I apologize for my tardiness. This is a poor man's cold immersion tub that is used for temperature cycling (thermotherapy).
I have a small Dundalk barrel sauna that I use in conjunction with it while doing breathwork.
If you want to test the waters, look up Wim Hof, Laird Hamilton, and/or Ben Greenfield, and read about the Finnish sauna method. If you want to go deeper into the weeds, read Dr. Rhonda Patrick's research on heat shock proteins and cold shock proteins.
From a practical perspective as a year round moto commuter and technical diver, this helps me tolerate the cold much better. From a mental perspective, it helps me to live out our Army adage, "embrace the suck". From a physical/health perspective, it helps in a number of ways as referenced above. And specifically on the sauna side, there are significant cardiovascular benefits as shown in Dr. Jari Laukkanen's published research.
If nothing else, the cold tub definitely causes significant shrinkage and lets you know that you are alive.
I hope that helps. Feel free to PM me for any further questions so I don't derail this thread.
Herman Munster would love those things!
Just an update, I went with the Denali light bar for the 1250 GSA. Yes they have one specifically for it as it is straight down vs the 1200 is slanted back.
Had to take all the tupperware off, but this thing is rock solid.
That is an awesome use of a freezer chest. Cryotherapy has come a long way. Purchased my own Gameready before the last knee surgery. Amazing.
Great looking garage too.
My new 1250 GSA is in process (San Jose BMW) and will be in my dirty un-organized garage soon. This thread has been extremely helpful....except for how expensive it's going to get.
FWIW, I've had great experience with the Wunderlich people and their products going back to when they were Santa Cruz BMW.
Depends what lights you hang in them! I used Baja XL80s and they shook cos the Bajas are heavy. Had to use another support to stop the shake!
This one is so stout, you can hang the bike from it. I have the old BD lights to it as well, not a shake.
