BMW Cylinder Head Covers by MachineartMoto
MachineartMoto, designers of specialized products for BMW motorcycles, announces X-Head_LC cylinder guards for the new R1200R and R1200RS liquid cooled models. X-Head_LC are designed to integrated with the styling of the R and RS and are the choice of riders who do not like the look of crash bars on street bikes.
X-Head_LC cylinder guards are designed to cover 80% of the face of the head to protect, not only the bottom/front initial impact area in a drop, but also the upper part of the cylinder head. Even in a stationary drop, inertia will cause bike to roll onto the upper face of the head before it settles down.
The X-Head_LC design benefits from "SuperTough" nylon technology successfully proven in use with the X-Head DOHC and SOHC models also in the product line. With its blend of high impact strength, temperature and UV stabilization, the injection molded shell is designed to be slightly ductile in impact to prevent breakage.
On the inside of the shell is a thick thermoplastic rubber heat resistant liner that rests against the face of the cylinder to aid in dissipating impact force while preventing hard contact. Each side mounts via 2 stainless steel M5 T25 Torx Head fasteners and one existing T50 bolt. MSRP: $189.00 MachineartMoto.com
