Cool protection

Wunderlichs water and oil cooler protection for the current BMW S 1000 RR and XR

The high-performance engines of the current BMW S 1000 RR and S 1000 XR need both water and oil coolers to maintain a healthy temperature balance. For an effective air flow to cool the engine, these are optimally arranged in the air stream. The water cooler requires a larger surface area due to the higher throughput and is therefore located above the smaller oil cooler. Due to their exposed installation position, however, the filigree fins of both cooler systems are exposed to stone chips, sharp-edged foreign objects and insects without protection. Insects clog the cooler and reduce the cooling capacity just as much as fins deformed by stone chips or other foreign objects. In the worst case, leaks can occur. With a damaged cooler, it is not possible to continue riding under any circumstances.

It is therefore necessary to protect both coolers and their cooling circuits against mechanical damage and reduced cooling capacity in order to ensure optimum air flow and cooling performance.

Wunderlich offers convincing, integrated solutions for RR and XR coolers:

The water cooler protection

The water cooler protection covers the front silhouette of the cooler perfectly, so that the direct impact of foreign objects and insects on the sensitive cooler net is reduced or avoided. It reliably protects the cooler without - and this is important - reducing the air flow.

The oil cooler protection

The oil cooler protection from Wunderlich protects the oil cooler, which is located directly behind the front wheel and thus in its spreading area. Here, whirled up dirt, stones and foreign objects may be accelerated by the front wheel before hitting the filigree fins of the oil cooler and hit the unprotected cooler net with even higher energy. This is exactly why the installation of the Wunderlich oil cooler protection is recommended!

Well thought-out, designed with a lot of experience and manufactured in high quality

Both protective grilles each consist of a high-strength, welded stainless steel grille with a sturdy aluminium holding frame that fits perfectly into the front silhouette of the RR and XR fairings. The water cooler protection is also fixed in a vibration-decoupled manner.

The functional design and the high-quality finish of the Wunderlich water and oil cooler protection integrate perfectly into the appearance of the BMW RR and XR and underline it.
Wunderlich offers the water cooler protection for 146.13 €* and the oil cooler protection for 97.38 €*. Wunderlich offers a 5-year warranty on both components.
