    HI!

    I have a set of BMW original engine protection bars (1200GS) for sale. They are located in the southern Sydney suburbs. They cost over $480 new but I will sell for $200 ono. Chrome in colour, easy to fit, they are not compatible with the BMW plastic engine protection covers that I bought.

    My mistake could be your gain!

    Please private message me if you are interested.

    It is possible to fit cyclinder protection covers and BMW crash bars as well. A little bit of work with a file will allow this to happen. I take it that you are refering to the tight fit on the left hand side? Mine was tight but I managed to fit it all together quite easily, but the bar does just touch the cyclinder cover.

    I hope this is of some help the covers and the bars fitted together do look good and function well when you happen to fall over.

    I now have the Hepco Becker bars in conjunction with the cylinder head protectors. Have you "used" your BMW bars yet on the left hand side? As it is touching I would have thought that it would cause damage when it flexes in a crash. BMW states that the two are not compatible as well.


    Anyway, does anyone want to buy my very cheap BMW engine protection bars?
