Engine Guards
« on: February 09, 2020, 07:51:57 PM »
I just purchased an F750GS a couple of weeks ago and am looking at "engine guards" to adequately protect the engine as well as offering some protection to the upper plastics/tank area  I see Revzilla has  a Puig and Altrider and Twisted Throttle has a Givi also listed. I have a Touratech set on my 2006 VStrom which didn't protect the top plastic in a tipover.  Has any one had any experience with F750GS guards or opinions to share.  So far it seems the Givi TN5127 "look" like they would work well.

Just purchased the Wunderich engine bars for my F850GS following a lot of debate. Not fitted yet but Wunderlich products are well made and intelligently designed.

The video is very informative but does not say who manufactures the bars and the luggage racks appear to be of the same manufacture.. Serious protection though.

I am waiting on Alt Rider but they are still in development for the 750/850 GS, supposed to be released sometime this quarter. TourTech makes upper and lower bars and there is a video on You Tube from Adam Chandler on the Givi bars for the 750 GS.

For the 750/850 standard models, you should be happy with any listed, for the F850GSA your only choice is wunderlich America https://www.wunderlichamerica.com/   I have been running mine for a few months now and I am impressed with both quality and fit.
