This kit includes both the polycarbonate and stainless headlight guard faces along with all required brackets and mounting hardware.
BMW’s R 1200 GS has played a significant part in making adventure motorcycles what they are today. Keep the setting sun from stopping your adventure with a headlight guard from AltRider.
After a careful design process, the AltRider team developed a mesh pattern for the stainless steel headlight guard that deflects damaging debris. The deliberate design minimizes any loss of illumination from the headlight. The smart pattern also complements the sleek design of the R 1200 GSW. The resilient face of the polycarbonate headlight guard is precision cut from impact-resistant polycarbonate – the same material used in bullet-proof windows. This polycarbonate is formulated with a hardened scratch resistant surface both front and rear.
The face attaches to the stainless steel frame with a custom machined aluminum ball and rubber socket connection that provides a sturdy connection free of any vibration. These innovative fasteners make removal of the guards for cleaning a cinch – no tools required.
The frame of the headlight guard is anchored on all four corners of the headlight to provide a robust foundation to absorb impacts. All metal edges are laser-cut and grain finished. Unlike other available headlight guards, installation is simple and doesn’t require removal of the blinker stalks or any bodywork. All versions of the AltRider headlight guard utilize the same frame, and are completely interchangeable.
The frame and lenses are available in brushed stainless or powdercoat black finish – both are incredibly resistant to rust and weathering. The headlight guard will fit both the halogen and LED headlights.

BMW - Altrider Head-guard Dual KitBy: Chris Dolahenty on 7 June 2018This is again a very good product produced by Altrider. From the quality of the materials to the quality and ease of fitment. It looks good on the bike too. My only criticism is that Altrider did not reduce the price of the item(s) even though they knowingly removed the anti-glare plastic that went on the clear plastic deflector.
