Crash Bar Reinforcement System for BMW R1250/1200 GS/GSA

***UPDATE: This design fits the standard GS as well as the GSA models for the 1200 and 1250!

The stock BMW crash bars provide decent basic protection but are definitely not strong enough to take a substantial hit, which is why we developed our crash bar reinforcement bars. We looked at other solutions on the market and none of them suited our needs, either being a weak design, poor fitment or not esthetically pleasing. 


This system is made from beautifully machined components that are rock solid, providing incredible support to the stock crash bars. By attaching to the frame this system provides the ultimate in support and protection. These bars are triangulated to provide the maximum strength and support to the stock crash bars. Combine them with our new Cylinder Head Protectors for the Ultimate Protection.


Made from 100% beautifully machined components for the ultimate strength and durability.
Does not use folded sheet metal (which provides little stability and strength).

Custom Machined Clamps allow for a precise fit to the OEM Crash Bars
Our design does not use generic "off-the-shelf" components that have a sloppy fit and unsightly esthetics.

Attaches to the frame using the engine through-bolt for optimal strength
This provides a rock solid anchor point for the reinforcement bars

Small Details Count 
Which is why we include bushings to protect the paint on the frame as well have rounded edges on our machined clamps to prevent getting caught up on rocks, etc.

Cheap Insurance
Considering the costs of expensive repairs or “extractions” from the outback, it’s a bargain!

Made in the U.S.
No bones about it, we manufacture all of our Black Dog products right here in the U.S. It is extremely important to us. We have world class manufacturers in our own back yard and we intend to use them.

Tested and Trusted Worldwide
All of our own products are rigorously tested on our personal bikes BEFORE they’re released. Our innovative and rugged designs are used throughout the world—a fact that we’re very proud of. We make no pretense that we’re the cheapest, but, you can be sure that BDCW products are the best made, and that we stand behind them.
