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

Unfortunately, the original steering stops are simply not strong enough. They can be damaged by harmless falls or a strong knock. If this happens, the top yoke (upper clamp) can be damaged, and the fork tubes and Telelever are vulnerable as well. Additionally, on the 1150 models the brake lines could be squashed causing brake failure. All this can lead to expensive repairs and a great deal of aggravation. All the listed original parts are not available usually at bargain discount prices, so the investment in damage prevention is always worthwhile.

We have opted for a new approach with the R 1200 GS, here‘s how it works: the protector brackets bolt onto the lower fork bridge pinch bolts, the top bumpers contact the Telelever just before the original steering stop would make contact.
This softens the blow, and, as the rubber bumper compresses, it progressively becomes a solid stop for the forks. Turning the handlebar fully is significantly more pleasant as the hard original restriction is no longer present.

Sold as a complete set of left and right hand side complete with all flttings.

Works perfectly. Simple to install. Looks good on the bike. Extra insurance against tank slapper damage. My nephew now wishes he'd bought these before his tank slapping get off this past weekend. If you ride in the rough you need this part! (Posted on 01/05/2012)
Prevention Better Than Regret Review by Sarie Arar

I installed these on my new R 1200 GS 2012 model. It is a perfect security to protecting your bike during tip overs especially when off road. I got the silver and they fit well cheap insurance. (Posted on 10/12/2011)
Nice addition, better than competition's Review by Jim Bessette

Previous bike I had on TT hard part which seemed to work just fine, but lost the "rubberized" part twice. These are unobtrusive and seem very tough. Easy to install, though I wish it used Torx rather than hex bots so I don't have to carry another tool. Not a big deal, but just something they should consider. (Posted on 30/11/2011)
A snap to install Review by Jim Reynolds

These went on without a hitch. Nice fit and clean look. I feel much better having them installed on my new GS - not that I plan on dropping it, but cheap insurance. (Posted on 22/03/2011)
