While AltRider lower crash bars guard your engine from trail damage, add protection to the front fairings and radiator of your BMW with a set of upper crash bars. The upper crash bars make a perfect spot to mount auxiliary lights on, keeping them far above the ground and out of harm’s way.
This Upper Crash Bars fits:
BMW F800GS 2008-2012
BMW F800GS 2013-present
The AltRider single-piece upper crash bars utilize specially designed metal clamps to mount to the lower crash bars - creating one seamless crash bar system that’s built to last. Because the lower bars are now tied together with the upper crash bars, impacts are distributed evenly throughout the entire system.
The upper crash bars are mandrel-bent from 1” (2.5 cm) stainless steel tubing and hand-TIG welded. They are the only bars on the market created with 5-axis CNC laser coping at the joints. The bars are available in shot peen satin or rugged powder coat finish. The stainless steel is extremely resistant to rust and weathering, no matter how rough the conditions.

Andy - F650GS TwinBy: Andrew Melville on 12 February 2017I am very pleased with the upper crash bars. They really complete the look of the bike. They also add protection for the front indicators in a fall and help to strengthen the overall protection level when added to the lower bars. Very easy to fit too, with clear instructions.
