Crash bars K1600 GTL

I live in Lairg, Scotland. I own a k1600 GTLE 2018 and I am looking for crash bars both front and rear. Any suggestions?

Re: Crash bars K1600 GTL

I have AltRider fronts and C4 rears on my '16 GTLE. The C4's are made by one of the forum members on the site. The AltRiders provide a better napping angle than the stock BMW bars, and the C4's provide better clearance than some of the other aftermarket rear bars for pillion seating. I am not sure about fitment on the new '18 models, though.

Re: Crash bars K1600 GTL

C4 pannier guards work great (C4 is on the GT/GTL Forum) and I had them on my '13 GTL

As far as Engine Guards the Illiums with foot rests worked great as well.

Congratulations on your new ride
