As it is perfectly suitable for the terrain the R1200GS constantly invites you to go on extensive off road trips. So that this remains an unalloyed pleasure、 we have developed a sump guard especially for the R1200GS. Any knocks or impact are distributed over the whole engine block so that the engine housing is protected in the best possible way. When used on rough terrain the bike can slide much more easily over stones、 rocks and uneven ground because of the angled shape of the front of the sump guard. In addition the sump guard is so long that it also protects the front silencer and the catalytic converter. Strongly constructed from 4mm aluminium with a special stainless steel stand. The sump guard extension for the central stand (044-0280) can be used just as easily as the sump guard reinforcement (044-0300). Anyone wanting to go off road with their new GS without having to worry about it cant easily do without this sump guard!
