After three of our own damaged reservoirs we designed these complex structured protectors which are mounted and supported through several strong mounting points.
In order to be able to absorb impacts, a relatively thick aluminum was used. Slots were machined in to lighten the parts and ensure that the end product is strong and also looks good. Can be used with or without fitted original hand protectors. Sold complete with fitting kit.
These guards are sold individually. For both sides, you’ll need to order one clutch reservoir guard and one brake reservoir guard.
Strong protection and looks nice
Installed on my F800R, perfect fit (but see note).
Easy to install but it would be nice to have some instructions, I'm not sure what for is the big washer, I used it on the mirror, below the protector, but looks too big (and loose if it weren't for the mirror being secured on top).
Note: It does interfere some with my handlebar bag, I had to put one of the straps inside this protector, and then the strap is a little too short.

- This unit is good quality and easy to install. Since it mounts in two places on the handlebar (to the mirror post, and to a supplied handlebar bracket) I feel like it will actually protect the reservoir if ever needed. Some of the competitors units simply mount to the reservoir itself offering little actual protection.
- I don't know how the Wunderlich version compares to all the other after market guards out there but I like the black anodized finish and the simple installation. It seems like it will serve its intended purpose.
