The object of purchase may not include potentially shown accessory parts.

Life insurance for the expensive original case and an additional highlight for the RT. Since the original cases are wider than the cylinders, damage to the former is practically inevitable without some form of protection.

Wunderlich's rear protection bars for the R1200 RT - it not only offers great protection for expensive, original RT saddlebags, but also provides a genuine visual highlight. What has long been standard equipment for authority motorcycles is now available for civilian use. Made from rigid, seamless precision tubular steel, Wunderlich engineers have collaborated with partners, Hepco Becker, to develop a crash bar that protects the side panels and bags of the RT against bumps and falls.

At the same time, the bars are so discreet that they impede neither the rider's nor the passengers mobility. The easy operation of the original bag also remains unimpeded. Additional advantage: The bars are a perfect lifting point and can be used to attach further accessories or luggage.

The facts:

  • Protects the saddlebags from front and side impact, also in a tip over
  • Fits all model years of the R1200 RT
  • Perfect lifting point when placing the bike on the center stand
  • Comfortable holding point for the passenger
  • Unobtrusive; full range of rider and passenger movement unchanged
  • Operation, removal, installation of saddlebags unchanged
  • Robust attachment at four points on each side
  • Supplemental reinforcement of subframe
  • Made of seamless, precision steel tubing
  • Ideal for the attachment of additional accessories or luggage
  • Complete set of left right bars with instructions and all needed hardware
  • Made in Germany
  • Available in chrome plated or powder coated versions (silver or black)

Because the saddlebags are the widest point of the bike, wider than the cylinders, damage without these guards is more likely.

Please see the Additional Information link above for supplemental installation instructions. The HD video for this product also has some useful information. Please note that the bike in the video also has our engine protection bars installed.

Rear Protection Bar Review by ted hall

Well made, but a bear to install. Lotsa plastic to remove before installation. Took me a few hours diddling(tm) to get the install and get back together. Don't drop the screws while doing the work, it's a mutha getting them back in your fingers. (Posted on 18/04/2013)
Very strong protection Review by Doug Stracener

These bars were the first thing I added to the bike after purchase. You do not want to drop on the nice painted cases !Installation is a bit tedious and requires removal of all the tupperware, and taking apart the rear rack to mount the bars on each side, but taking time and cross checking your work will result in a very strong setup that gives the civilian RT the same protection the RTP bikes have when combined with the engine protection bars.

Rear protection bars Review by Bob

Rock solid. Some tweaking involved for lining up anchor points. Install all the bolts loosely first, then tighten. This helps. Great anchor points for straps. Center stand lift is now a breeze. (Posted on 01/09/2012)

As several add ons were being installed at the same time I took off 75% of the tupperware to accomplish everything at one time. The Bars went in fairly easy doing the install by myself. They also make putting the bike up on the center stand much easier. (Posted on 28/08/2012)
Engine and Bag protection Review by Tony

Great look and Easy to install, about an hour on the bag bars and around 45min on the engine bars. A little pricy, but you have to pay to play. All in all, a great product. (Posted on 09/07/2012)

This is an excellent product, very expensive, but once installed does the job very well. Its a bit tough to install, and requires patience. (Posted on 16/06/2012)
Nice Protection Review by Robert Charron

The bars provide nice protection for the side cases. Had a minor issue with the left side as the bar was a little too apart to get to the bottom screw hole. Solved that with a cargo ratchet strap in a jiffy. (Posted on 04/08/2011)
Nice Bars - 2011 R1200RT Review by Ian Mitchell
Rating
Nice bars and install was fairly complex. One glitch...the rear luggage rack can be tricky. When undoing one of the rear bolts, it bound up and the brass insert broke away from the rack. It was about 1/4" loosened when this occurred. Managed to complete the install without totally removing the rack. The nasty bolt/bushing wouldn't tighten either...just spin. Had the dealer remove and replace with a standard bolt/lock nut at 1000 k check...problem solved. The bars fit nice and look great. Good protection for panniers and work well with engine guards. Shipping to Canada was quick and smooth. (Posted on 22/05/2011)

Wunderlich Bag Protection Bars Review by Steve Cass
Rating
I purchased the silver powder coated bars. The finish is very smooth and matches the silver side panels on the motorcycle well. The bars fit very well and installation went very smoothly. I had no problem with installing the rack other than some minor access problems to hardware on the back side of the bars. The hardest part of the job is removing and reinstalling the luggage rack. The back two screws are installed vertically and they are difficult to get started and cross thread easily. I suggest the these two screws are installed first when reinstalling the rack. This allows for a lot of movement of the rack to get the screws started straight. Once these are in the rest of the rack hardware goes in easily. (Posted on 03/01/2011)
Rear Protection Bar, Black Review by Carl McAloose
Rating
REceived the black ones...very nice finish and perfect fit to the bike. Hardest part is taking the body panels off to get access to the frame itself. When you install, be careful of the front frame adapters. The screw heads are pretty shallow and can strip easily if you start to over tighten. They look excellent on the bike and do not inhibit riders legs at all. Very happy...I'm a repeat customer...Wunderlich has very high quality products if you can get by the instructions!! Highly recommend these. (Posted on 29/12/2010)
