Cylinder Guards for BMW R1250GS/GSA

We now have confirmation that our cylinder guards fit both the R1250GS AND GSA Models with BMW OEM Crash Bars!! 


The GSA stock crash bars provide decent protection with one exception - the magnesium head covers that are very vulnerable to a well placed rock. The new Black Dog Cylinder Guards close that gap and eliminate the likelihood of your ride ending with a broken cylinder head cover.

When combined with our new Black Dog Crash Bar Reinforcement Bars, you have made the most of the stock crash bars. 


Made from 1/4" 5052 Aluminum with machined slots for countersunk bolts - provides a smooth sliding surface.
Does not have protruding bolt heads that are prone to get caught up on.

Stout steel brackets conform to the shape of the crash bars.

The shape conforms well to the crash bars and provides extra support for larger impacts.

Available in Silver Vein or Black Hammertone Powdercoat with an extra layer of clearcoat

Sold as a Pair

Looks "Badass" on Every Bike
Not that it matters when it’s covered in mud.

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.

Have just installed my Black Dog BMW R1250 GSA cylinder head guards. Love them! Rock solid and good looking at the same time. Gregory Phipps, Nova Scotia Canada
